What We Do

Takapuna Grammar School, Block N Refurbishment

Brosnan Construction was commissioned by the Ministry of Education to refurbish the existing ‘N Block’ at Takapuna Grammar School.

The project included demolition of part of the existing structure and spanning a central courtyard with a new roof structure to create useable internal space. The space was then re-modelled and fully refurbished to provide new Science, Break Out and Resource rooms.

A major challenge facing the project team was working in the middle of four classroom blocks whilst maintaining appropriate isolation between the on-going school operations and the continually changing site requirements.

Nearing the conclusion of this project the team also converted an existing teaching space into a food tech area. This was completed over the Christmas holiday period ready for the commencement of the new school year.
