Canam worked closely with the Bible College of New Zealand through the development of a client brief concept drawing to develop a facility that would take them to a new level in tertiary education.

The facility contains 3 levels of academic library, financial services department, IT facilities, marketing department and a centre for distance learning. As lectures and tutorials continued on campus, Canam’s methodology and Health & Safety measures was critical to minimise the impact to students and staff. This was achieved by completing the demolition, excavation site works and drainage during holiday periods when the majority of students were off campus. We also prefabricated as many elements as possible off site. Precast concrete for external and internal walls, pre-stressed flooring systems and timber framed walls were all completed off site.

Canam worked with our team of design consultants and service subcontractors to ensure the stringent mechanical and electrical requirements for comfort, noise and visual impact levels were met.

During the course of the construction process Canam increased the level of finishes to key areas without an impact on the client’s budget. The end result is that the Bible College of NZ now have a facility without rival in NZ.
