Remarkables Primary School Queenstown

The first state primary school to open in the lower South Island since 1981 had its grand opening recently. The school has transformed an otherwise little used section of the Lake Wakatipu waterfront into a vibrant centre for learning.
Cosgroves provided their Building Services Engineering expertise in Mechanical, Electrical, Hydraulic and Fire protection services for this new state of the art education facility.
Due to the proximity to Queenstown Airport complying with the stringent acoustic criteria was a particular challenge during design of the Mechanical Services. Providing a fully sprinkled facility in an alpine environment, and promoting connectivity through the open Admin stair together with the adjacent double height hall space required the application of alternative solutions for the Fire team.
