A modular building comes to Kingscliff



The streets of Kingscliff were brought to life last week when a modular building for Tweed Valley Respite Services was installed on their site in Cudgen Road, Kingscliff. The commercial building was a modification of one of our standard residential buildings the “Sanctum”. Fulton Trotter Architects chose to capitalise on the advantages of the efficiencies offered by adapting one of our range with some clever re-planning of the interior floor plan to suit the needs of the client, with all other building principles remaining intact.


Three separate modules were fabricated at IDH’s modular factory in Murwillumbah and were lifted and installed in their location in under 4 hours. There was, of course, time required to prepare services and building footings, however this occurred simultaneously while the building was constructed. The series of photos demonstrate a simple process of lifting the modules into site and reconnecting them together. Actually, while it was a quick and simple process, that simplicity has taken many years and thousands of hours to develop the systems and design principals to allow such a smooth process on a difficult site with steep terrain and minimal access. The production development team worked collaboratively and with enormous energy and vigour to produce a high quality building with minimal fuss.
