For 40 years, the library at Maidstone Intermediate had served its students well, but by 2010, the building and its facilities were outdated. It was decided to demolish the old building and create a new, state-of-the-art information centre.
The new building, named Pataka Unga Matauranga, used award-winning design to offer new technology that blended into the existing school landscape. Completed in 2011, the 400m2 information centre contains a library, computer technology classroom, multi-media room and teacher's resource room.
The new build took place in a courtyard, surrounded by classrooms and other teaching spaces. Maycroft Construction has a wealth of experience building on school sites, and employed our high standard of protection and care to ensure the safety of pupils, staff, and our on-site workers. We also minimised disruption to ongoing school activities.
We are pleased to have been part of this project, and look forward to continuing our relationship with Maidstone Intermediate.
