The team at Cosgroves have extensive experience in the design and construction observation for Building Services and Civil Engineering works for primary, secondary, and tertiary education facilities. We collaborate with clients to meet the needs of high stakeholder engagement education facilities.

Papamoa Primary School 

Services Provided: Mechanical, Hydraulic, Electrical and Fire Protection

This redevelopment project involved the addition of a new teaching block designed to function in multiple modes of varying size, arranged around a central resource, teacher, and breakout core.  Cosgroves completed a detailed site investigation, as built documentation review and consultation with the school’s facilities staff to ensure that infrastructure upgrades and diversions provided future proofing and flexibility while remaining within the constraints of the project budget. 

St Peter's College New Chapel, Auckland 

Services Provided: Mechanical, Hydraulic, Electrical, Fire Engineering and Fire Protection 

Cosgroves worked with Stevens Lawson Architects on the design of the new chapel for St Peter’s College. The new chapel is a striking piece of architecture that acts as a public symbol for the school. We worked closely with the architect to ensure that the building services and fire engineering designs were incorporated seamlessly into the architecture. We pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our designs to complement and blend in with the architecture to ensure the overall architectural vision of the project was achieved.


Rutherford Regional Science and Innovation Centre (RRSIC) - University of Canterbury 

Services Provided: Mechanical, Hydraulic, Electrical, Ancillary Electrical, Vertical Transportation and Environmentally Sustainable Design Services

The RRSIC project was commissioned to provide a world-class facility for science teaching and research. The facility includes science laboratories, technology enabled teaching spaces with collaboration, and social meeting spaces throughout the building. We worked closely with Umow Lai, and it is an exemplar of a collaborative partnership to deliver a complex tertiary laboratory building services design project to an exceptional standard. Out teams’ use of BIM to coordinate the services model provided invaluable cost savings by identifying issues early and supported completion within budget. 

Lincoln University Recreation Centre

Services Provided: Mechanical, Hydraulic, Electrical and Fire Engineering 

Lincoln University engaged Cosgroves to assist with the major alteration of the existing Recreation Centre on the campus. It involved demolishing and replacing the main entry, circulation spaces, changeroom, showers, toilets, and administration areas, while keeping the remainder of the recreation centre operational and the construction of a new gymnasium and refurbishment of the existing external changerooms and squash courts. An integral part of our design was to devise solutions to enable existing facilities to continue operating and implementing sustainability solutions within these existing facilities. An example of this was decommissioning the steam connection and switching to heat pumps for direct hot water providing a better sustainable outcome for the University Campus.
