Oaklands Te Kura o Ōwaka is currently in a major rebuild and renovation of the school as part of the Canterbury Schools Renewal programme.
Every school is different, so there is no one HVAC solution for all schools. Instead, there is a “best” solution for each individual school—chosen from careful evaluation—that maintains the highest possible indoor air quality at the lowest possible energy costs.
During the over one-year long rebuild good communication with the head contractor was required throughout each stage of the project as students relocated from temporary classrooms to completed ones.
We were pleasantly surprised to find that both sides share the same concept of an innovative environment. It offers students and teachers flexibility, agency, ubiquity, and connectedness. As in HPAC, we are working in this direction on every project.
