Bethany Lutheran Primary School Arts Centre, Raceview, QLD
Whether it’s dance, drama, visual or media arts, all now have a place to be explored in this new arts centre at this Queensland primary school.
This primary school’s new Arts Centre offers the perfect space for children to express themselves creatively while developing valuable skills such as confidence, concentration and teamwork. The recently completed centre at Bethany Lutheran Primary School gives the students a series of light-filled, welcoming spaces where they can explore their creative sides and showcase their efforts.
Located southwest of Brisbane, Bethany Lutheran Primary School teaches children from Prep to Year 6. The new centre is a vital addition to their innovative arts learning program involving dance, drama, visual and media arts. It will be used for day-to-day classes as well as for art exhibitions and performances.
Completed in 2020, the Art Centre incorporates a range of Alspec’s commercial window and door framing products which have proven credentials in the high-use education environment. ProGlide High Performance Sliding Doors, Swan Evo Commercial Doors, McArthur Evo Centre Pocket Framing and View-Max Commercial Sliding Windows integrate seamlessly to deliver a well-protected, secure and inviting facility for the children.
On approaching the Art Centre’s main façade, three sets of ProGlide High Performance Sliding doors provide the key entry points to the various areas of the building. Configured with two fixed and four sliding panels, the ProGlide doors are known for their ease of operation and serviceability, as well as proven performance in weather extremes. For other access points, equally durable Swan Evo 45mm Commercial Doors were adopted in hinged and pivoted configurations.
As a framing product, the McArthur Evo system is exceptionally robust, secure and has excellent weathering properties thanks to its centre-pocket style of glazing and self-draining sub sills. Available in either 101.mm or 150mm frame depths, the system can accept single glazing up to 14.5mm.
As an openable window, the View-Max Commercial Sliding Window is a high performance solution with excellent weather, acoustic and thermal properties. The system includes Alspec’s unique locking and roller systems, along with specially designed drainage systems which ensure optimum weather performance. The windows integrate with McArthur Evo framing (101.6mm) but can also be utilised with narrower Derwent framing (76mm) when a slimline style is desired.
