The brief at Selwyn College was to reconfigure and then stitch together and refurbish a number of individual existing Portacom classroom units to create a brand new technology block.

The works challenging programme involved the demolition of some structures, relocation of existing Portacoms, complete internal and external refurbishment, construction of a new covered walkway link and concrete roof garden, installation of new HVAC services, plus a new hotmix ashphalt and metal carpark.

The works were phased out over a number of stages, requiring a high level of logistical planning and communication in order to avoid interfering with the school’s day to day activities as well as ebing able to manage a site with very restricted access.
