What We Do

Te Pa O Rakaihautu

Brosnan Construction was engaged to develop the existing Primary School site to suit the requirements of the Te Pa O Rakaihautu. The new school was to be the first of its kind in Christchurch, purpose-designed to bring together Maori and English mediums in a Pa setting to create a unique learning environment that will deliver significantly improved outcomes for Maori students.

The project involved converting an existing teaching block to a Modern Learning Environment open space and along with structural and kitchen upgrades to the hall, drainage replacement and site works surfaces treatments.  However, it wasn’t until the project was well advanced that the full scope could be established due to the state of the buildings involved. The project was awarded to Brosnan Construction as a trusted partner of the Ministry of Education, to work on an ‘Open Book’ basis, without a specified budget.

Given the project’s unique challenges, we worked closely with the design team to manage the budgets, and to ensure solutions met extremely tight timeframe constraints whilst also meeting the School’s needs.

The project team delivered this project within an operating environment that required high levels of communication and cooperation to ensure the project’s total success.
