Auckland Girls Grammar, Auckland CentralReturn to all projects
To convert single cell classrooms to create more flexible learning spaces with breakout areas and teacher preparation areas and to turn the existing food-technology area into a commercial kitchen, as well as to refresh the science laboratories.
Our value add:
The upgrade was to an existing, aging building making it a complex project, involving asbestos removal and converting old-style classrooms into innovative learning environments complete with breakout areas. On the first floor we managed the refresh of the science labs, which were improved acoustically.
Originally constructed in 1971, C Block is a multi-story classroom block that proved to be very complex to upgrade. This was due to the removal of classrooms from the school timetable during construction, the extent of the aged building services and unknown condition of building elements concealed within asbestos containing materials.
The benefit of a multi-disciplinary team meant we offered value over all projects in-house with asbestos assessors, building surveyors, structural engineers and project managers providing services to the school as a priority.
