MACLEANS SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY BLOCK Stage 1 of 3
EDUCATION / $16m / Auckland
The demolition and re-build of the Macleans Science and Technology Block is a 3 stage project. Stage 1 involved the demolition of the existing asbestos clad, leaking facilities, and construction of the new 800m2 Food and Technology Block. In total, this block consisted of seven new teaching spaces made up of a food tech room, computer teaching space, wood and metal working rooms with welding bays. Once completed, C3 was responsible for the relocation of the existing machinery, fittings, and fixtures, which had to be transferred from the old to the new block during the school holiday period to ensure continuity for Macleans College students. Stage 1 of this project involved significant challenges such as working within a live school environment, removing asbestos and contaminated ground, tight working areas, and detailed delivery management to ensure no downtime or disruptions during schooling, especially during specific periods of time i.e., Cambridge Exams.

C3 is proud to have sourced an alternative, value for money, playground solution to ensure the students would have access to tactile play areas to suit their needs. A project that was humbling to be involved with, C3 loves to be part of delivering buildings for kids who need and appreciate them.
