Weltec: School of Construction

The WelTec Construction School is a new regional facility serving the wider Wellington Region. A new site on the Petone edge of State Highway 2 was selected to provide a shopfront to showcase the work of WelTec students.

Both WelTec and Hutt City Council required a building to provide an iconic gateway to the Hutt Valley.

The design consciously celebrates the teaching of construction with inclusion of space for erecting small houses. A workshop and teaching block provides references to “container” based site sheds. A simple steel-clad box form, and the inclusion of natural materials achieve a building devoid of complexity.

The facility provides students with ample space to work on real life construction projects as well as social spaces in the student hub area.

It reflects in a raw but composed manner the function within, whilst providing a rhythmic and deliberate edge.
