What We Do

Tamaki Primary New Classrooms and Special Needs Satellite Unit

This project featured a two storey extension that linked the existing main school block, built in c.1970, to the new classrooms and special needs unit. The ground floor special needs unit opened out to a fully-fenced outdoor learning environment and linked to a new driveway that featured a free standing sheltered canopy over a dedicated student drop-off zone.

The specialist nature of the building required significant attention to detail. The Brosnan project team paid particular attention to the finer details to ensure the needs of the future occupants were met. Having the experience, knowledge and understanding of special needs requirements, including the relevant building codes, was of critical importance.

Major site works included retaining walls, new services including dedicated sprinkler mains, new kerbs and asphalt roads including a full turning circle and extensions through the school to provide dual entry and egress routes to improve traffic flows.

Special features of the project included level thresholds at doorways, specialised ablution and showering facilities, together with lifting and transportation devices. Bespoke furniture and fittings completed the interior fit-out, which created both a comfortable and functioning environment for both teaching and learning.
