Engenuiti have a great ‘can do’ attitude and have helped us create beautiful timber buildings on time and on budget. A really fun team to work with. Jerry Tate - Tate Harmer

To meet the acoustic, thermal and practical requirements of the new classroom block, the lower storey of the building is fabricated from a steel frame with precast concrete planks to provide robust environment housing the science and design and technology classrooms. Above in the art classrooms, the high pitched timber roof provides light deep in to the floor plate. The external terrace at first floor also doubles as the spectator viewing area for the adjacent cricket pitches.

This hybrid structure and approach was developed to provide a robust and cost effective solution for classrooms, whilst still providing a high quality, light and modern learning environment.
