The demolition and re-build of the current Macleans Science and Technology blocks is a 3 stage project, with each stage taking approximately 6-12 months. Each existing block has to be demolished, re-built and then the existing block transferred over during a school holiday period to ensure continuity for Macleans college. This project involves significant challenges including, working within a live school, removing asbestos and contaminated ground, tight working areas and detailed delivery management. C3 are only stage 1 of this project, handing over the new tech and food teach block first in September 2020.
This project involved the build of a Special Needs Unit on the Flanshaw Road School campus. Special consideration had to be given to materiality and quality of finishes due to the unique requirements of some of the students. 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.
This project comprises a 2 storey teaching block housing 10 classrooms with associated resource and amenities. C3 was engaged under an ECI contract to assist with the buildability of design, with particular focus on site access constraints and logistics. C3 takes its ECI commitments seriously, a detailed report at Developed Design stage ensured clear strategies were identified and implemented to mitigate projects risks early on.
This project involves the careful rebuild of nearly a kilometre of covered walkways around Macleans College. To add to the challenge, the existing walkways house the schools main services infrastructure. C3 stepped up to the logistical challenge, managing multiple workfaces, whilst maintain critical access for students and teachers, as well as maintaining live services to the entire school campus.
This design and build project involved the rebuild of Mansfield House, circa 1000m2 of Whanau Block unique to Macleans College. The design team, lead by Roy Bloc of Brewer Davidson Architects, thoughtfully designed a building that fit the Macleans College Whanau Block pedagogy, but also was flexible enough to fit the MOE Innovative Learning Environment standards. Tight timeframes drove split consents and fast tracked design and construct methodologies to ensure completion on time.
C3 is proud to deliver over 1000m2 of new innovative learning spaces at this leading edge junior school in Karaka, Auckland. With intricate design including multi pitched roof with LVL roof frame, the use of 3d modelling technology and drone based 3d photogrammetry was instrumental in ensuring a smooth erection process.
This project comprises the refurbishment of classrooms within a live school environment and adding new accessible ramps, a bathroom and routes throughout the school to make it fully accessible going forward. A tight programme and budget meant that a fully open book approach was offered by C3 in order that the school get the maximum scope and benefit from the available budget.
