The opening of two brand new schools side by side in Hamilton has created the city's largest school campus. Sharing an 11 hectare site on West Park Road, the Rototuna Junior High School caters for years 7-10 and Rototuna Senior High School for years 11-13.
Long-awaited by the fast-growing local community, the new schools were designed by Jasmax's Auckland-based architects, who have extensive experience designing modern learning environments for the New Zealand education sector.
With a 5-star Green Building Rating, the building has high levels of insulation, is designed to maximise natural ventilation and lighting and will also harvest rainwater. The adaptable, open plan learning spaces feature dormakaba products that provide high performance and longevity, to suit today's flexible style of teaching and learning environment.
Dormakaba provide their specialist knowledge and experience at every stage from specification during design through to supply, commissioning and then ongoing service and maintenance for compliance.
