First Image of New School in Queenstown

By Nina Jensen

A first image of what a new high school in Queenstown will look like has been released.

The new Wakatipu High School will be built at Frankton and replace the existing school.

It is scheduled to open in 2018 and have capacity for 1200 students.

Last week Education Minister Hekia Parata signed a $298 million contract with the Future Schools Partner (FSP) consortium to finance, design, construct and maintain Ormiston Junior College in Auckland, Aranui Community Campus and Rolleston Secondary School in Canterbury and Wakatipu High School in Queenstown.

In the agreement, the consortium will be responsible for the school maintenance for 25 years, before the buildings are handed back to the Ministry in an agreed, well-maintained condition.

Consortium representative Steven Proctor said his organisation, Morrison & Co’s Public Infrastructure fund (PIP Fund), would fund the equity to the FSP consortium.

Hawkins Group will deliver design and construction expertise, while the design team is led by ASC Architects, Programmed Facility Management will be responsible for the facility management of the buildings, once they are completed.
