The Hon Bill English, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister responsible for Housing New Zealand Corporation has officially opened the Wellington Regional School of Construction.

Maycroft Construction is extremely proud of our latest completed project, a $5M Campus on a prominent site in Petone.  The facility will see more than 220 students learning at the campus at any one time in a modern learning environment and will see hundreds of students gain the comprehensive skill sets needed in order to participate in the construction industry.

The stunning new campus is purpose built to suit today’s and tomorrow’s learning needs.  The campus environment provides students with an invaluable opportunity to be involved in all parts of the construction process with multi-purpose open plan workshops and spaces with student break-out areas.   Programmes to be delivered on site include carpentry, painting and decorating, masonry, tiling, plastering and landscape construction.   

The building was designed by Designgroup Stapleton Elliot and incorporates the latest in design features and building practice. The completion of the School of Construction campus at Petone represents the first phase in the establishment of the Regional School of Construction, a Wellington-wide network of tertiary education provision which will see two main hubs centred on Petone and Porirua with preparatory programmes available in Kāpiti and Wellington city.
