After two years of design and construction, Papamoa Primary School’s new six classroom learning block has just been completed. At DCA we go above and beyond to ensure we deliver transformative results for our clients. We believe in listening first and doing second. DCA did this by undertaking a series of in-depth workshops with teachers, students and the community to create project engagement and broaden the stakeholder group’s awareness of 21st century flexible learning environments. DCA then instigated a field trip visiting recently completed exemplar Innovative Learning Environment projects with senior leaders, before attending the Association for Learning Environments conference in Melbourne in 2016 with the deputy principal. This investment of passion, time and energy at the front end of the project by the DCA team has paid off. The students and teachers have moved in with rave reviews about the design and layouts. Nothing makes us love architecture more than knowing our designs are having a positive transformational impact on the lives of others.
