Timetabling Modelling for New School Planning
We were contracted by Public Schools, New South Wales to conduct timetable modelling for NSW’s proposed largest and first high rise high school: a $100 million project for a new 10x story, inner city school: Arthur Phillip High School.
We generated a number of timetable scenarios based on architectural plans, catering for up to 2000 students being delivered the Australian curriculum.
We analysed floorplans and lift access, and considered timetabling in the context of reducing student movement and pressure on limited lift availability for large volumes of students.
We provided consulting to the Department to give confidence the architectural plans would result in the school that could be successfully timetabled efficiently, and provided a number of recommendations about how efficiencies could be further improved at the design stage.
