BCIS Education center Phuket

ThailandThailandCompany Name : Indo Construction Phuket Ltd.

Project description

When building an education center one must consider everything from market demand to quality of education to quality of life, as students spend one third of the day in school. In order to meet the needs of these factors, we needed to choose construction that will be easy to modify, safe to clean, strong, environmentally friendly and energy efficient. It is also imperative the center be within the standards set by the Ministry. Timing is an important part of this project as we had only 10 weeks to finish construction on the 10 new buildings. As the building is temporary, we hope to take the material that we used in installation to reuse in the permanent building. Gyproc Habito® board was chosen and installed to meet all requirements.
