Project Description

The New Learning Communities Consortium proposal for the Schools 3 Public Private Partnership project (PPP) for the Ministry of Education (MoE) includes three new primary schools spread across the greater Auckland Region. The design of each of the schools was carefully planned to allow a single level modular solution allowing direct access to outdoor learning environments and a proposal able to be delivered in the required timeframe.

Each school accommodates an initial roll of 560 students able to expand to final roll of 700. Each Leaning Hub accommodates 75 students and supports Modern Learning Environment pedagogy. The design is modular, and each Hub can operate independently of the next in terms of electrical, hydraulic, fire and mechanical services, affording flexibility in expansion and operation.
