A seismic assessment in 2017 resulted in the planned and controlled demolition of the original1970's Mission House building.
The building was central to school administration operations and additional classrooms, and held a lot of fond memories for staff and students. It's fair to say, this new Mission House building is a much-needed project.
Maycroft have been engaged under an Early Contractor Involvement (ECI) model for the replacement Mission House building. During the ECI period, we assisted the project team through design developments with our construction expertise, programming and cost advice.
This project is seen as an opportunity to reimagine education and provide quality learning environments for Sacred Heart Lower Hutt students. Designed in laminated timber on the footprint of the previous building, the two-storey Mission House building will once again be a visual and functional hub for the college. On the ground floor will be the administration and support services, such as, counselling rooms, meeting spaces, Deans rooms and staff facilities. The library, modern learning spaces, workrooms for staff, and storage spaces will all be on the second floor.
We are looking forward to delivering this important project as well as the opportunity to strengthen our existing relationship with the College, IR Group and Robertson Architects.
