TCW supports school children in The Solomon Island’s

TCW supports school children in the solomon island’s

TCW has been working with a group called Pacific Assist, who are a New Zealand based charity with an Australian arm, not-for-profit charity serving the nations of the South Pacific. Their mission is to strengthen the educational capacity of disadvantaged communities by providing learning resources, such as books and furniture.

In 2020, the Ministry of Education and Human Resource Development (MEHRD) in the Solomon Islands was given the opportunity to receive donated chairs and desks from schools in Australia as part of the churches mission, most notably in remote provinces like Renbel, Temotu and Choiseul.

 “there has been a shared feel of happiness from these schools”

Alongside the new works completed at Roseville College in Sydney, TCW has been able to assist in the work of Pacific Assist by donating a 40-foot container filled with school furniture, including 400 student tables and 400 student chairs from the school, as well as facilitating shipping and distribution. It is important to TCW to express that importance of furniture in education spaces, and the team is proud to be able to assist those in need in disadvantaged communities.

 

The total inventory of the last container TCW shipped to the Solomon Islands was:

  • 370 desks
  • 37 double school desks
  • 379 school chairs
  • 57 school stools
  • 26 boxes of school reading books

 

MEHRD has commented by saying “there has been a shared feel of happiness from these schools when receiving this furniture and we are grateful for all that is donated to us and the impact it will have in our schools as students use the furniture this year.”

The historic cinema has been repurposed as an education facility for students studying film and digital media, and it will also be used as a public cultural venue.

Six Degrees Architects and Hutchison Builders completed the multi-million dollar refurbishment, which involved the retention of the iconic geometric ceiling of the cinema and the restoration of the entrance, as well as providing learning spaces for more than 1,000 students, new office and incubation spaces.

All the ceilings and critical heritage elements are overhead, and all the new work comes up underneath.

TCW was delighted to participate in a short overview of the exceptional project with ArchiTel TV you can see below.

 TCW supplied EON sit-to stand workstations, Domino Task chairs and mobile storage units for this project. The EON workstations incorporated natural woodgrain finishes and PET Acoustic panel for the workstation screens and personal privacy dividers. Over 300 EON workstations in various configurations were supplied to accommodate the school’s occupants over two levels.

Utilising an urban design context as a design narrative was key to unlocking the spatial challenges of a vast and deep floor plan presented to the design. The project involved crafting an authentic space employing natural materials honestly whilst providing spaces of equity and agility delivering a future flexibility.

To set TISL apart from other science and research institutions, the concept of “the discovery of patterns in nature” was developed as a core design influence. This can be seen from the ‘hive-inspired’ designs in the main foyer to the environmental graphics and details throughout each space. The incorporation of natural materials throughout the design further highlights the harmony between the facility’s visual aesthetic and the surrounding sandstone landscape.

Designed to cater for staff as well as visitors, TISL cleverly integrates animal-friendly zones with educational and community spaces to create an interactive and immersive experience that promotes the “cross-pollination” of ideas across science, education and animal care.

TCW worked with the Builder, Architect and Taronga Zoo to supply a range of furniture to meet the needs of the multi-disciplinary research, teaching, outdoor and breakout spaces across the facility. We provided a diverse collection of furniture, integrating the natural design elements and tones of each area to complement the spatial unity of the Institute and its surroundings.

A great example of this are the Albury and Bronte chairs. Ideal for both breakout areas as well as working and meeting rooms, they are an excellent fit for multi-use spaces. In keeping with the feel of the built environment, we supplied chairs which were upholstered in earthy colours and set on wooden bases. This ensured that they slid comfortably into the visual aesthetic.

The 10,046sqm project covered classrooms, staff offices, breakout, canteen zones and collaboration areas. Our operations team had to manage many of the desk configurations around quirks of the building façade, including cutting tops to float around columns. Inclusive in the height-adjustable workstations was cable management, above desk power and monitor arms which all contribute to the ergonomic quality of the zone.

TCW managed furniture procurement and delivery at the Charles Perkins Centre from 2012 to 2014. We worked closely with both the University and the architects to select products which best fit the brief and exceeded expectations of design, quality of materials and engineering, longevity (10 year warranties), lead time and budget. TCW provided solutions to several key areas: scientific laboratories, learning spaces, breakout areas and cafés.

Approximately 1500 Dauphin Industry stools were delivered and installed in November 2013. The Dauphin Tec Stools are a niche seating group of chairs specifically designed for activities requiring high levels of concentration and/or cleanliness. Since the completion of the project, Dauphin Industry stools have continued to be specified for other University projects where quality laboratory seating is required.

TCW delivered and installed 600 tables from ThinkingWorks, which were locally manufactured and finished to the architects’ specifications.

As TCW has experience in many education spaces, we always looks to provide a furniture solution that goes above and beyond just the ‘need’ but also delights and inspires. Initially we worked in the fit out of several levels at 187 Thomas street, and more recently the Insearch facility on Harris street.

As you walk in, the lobby breakout space feature is the ‘Signs’ soft seating, an organic benching system that allows for students to utilize the space in a fluid way. Upstairs you find scattered arrangements with the ‘Zebra bicolore’ and ‘Cage’ chairs set into spaces suited to group learning and complementing the feature walls.
