Since taking modular home office design by storm, Harwyn has made a name for themselves in the Australian education market. Due to their modern look, durable material use, and prefab construction, the pods have become a premier choice for expansion. Unlike the traditional cubicle design, these pods offer schools an aesthetically-pleasing, flexible solution.

The pods are fabricated in a factory setting and transferred to the site upon completion, dramatically reducing construction waste, labor, and disruptions on site. The representatives at Harwyn explain, “The benefits of prefabricated construction are many and for schools, it means the delivery of classrooms without disruption.”

The pods utilized ® PLUS panels in Sunrise Silver Metallic and a Spectra Ocean Blue finish. Like all elements of the ALUCOBOND® Spectra line, the panels interact with both light and point of view, offering a unique perspective at every angle. Harwyn’s expansion into the education market has allowed for the creation of colorful, modern designs that are as unique as the schools they serve.

ALUCOBOND®’s Spectra finish line is a color-changing ACM that contains a Lumiflon resin topcoat. The next generation fluoropolymer maintains gloss and color when applied to architectural materials and will protect coatings from UV radiation, corrosion, water, salt, and other elemental deterrents. Lumiflon also greatly reduces a coating’s , as the FEVE resin will remain intact for decades.
