Emmanuel College‘s Warrnambool campus required a new bus shelter for students to protect them from the sun, rain and wind as they waited for their bus.
The bus shelter would need to be designed and constructed in an L shape and larger than the standard shelter. This would require a customized solution based on ASCO’s A4000 series.
ASCO was engaged to design, manufacture and install a customized shelter design to suit their needs.
The architect for the project was Matt Cirillo from Cirillo Architects in Geelong. ASCO worked alongside Matt to finalise design and drawings prior to commencing fabrication.
The specifications required taking ASCO’s standard A4000 series modifying it to increase the length and change the shape of the bus shelter to accommodate an ‘L’ shaped design. This process required additional design and planning to ensure structural integrity and efficiency.
The coastal environment presents a harsh climate; appropriate material selection is important. To prevent deterioration, ASCO used aluminum and laminated glass.
In September 2019 ASCO submitted a project proposal and commenced fabrication shortly after. The project was officially completed in December 2019, with the students using the bus shelter upon returning to campus the following year.
The result was a high-quality bus shelter that the coastal town of Warrnambool will enjoy for many years to come.
It’s a well-used asset for the students at Emmanuel College, keeping them dry and protected from the elements all year round.
