Campus construction sites – Think first

With four large construction sites on campus (CETF, NEB, RSIC and UCSA) you might have noticed things are super busy around here.

When you’re near a building site on campus watch out for trucks and other construction vehicles coming and going from the site – take extra care when near site gates.

If traffic management staff or detour signage is in place, please follow instructions. This applies to everyone – drivers, cyclists, skateboarders and pedestrians.

Keep outside construction sites and fencing, stay alert and slow down – you never know what’s around the corner…

Building work starting on Dovedale Campus

On Monday 18 April construction work will start on the building located near the corner of Parkstone Ave and the entrance to Car Park 1 on Dovedale Campus.

The building, previously occupied by Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery School, is being extended and refurbished to accommodate the Ilam Early Learning Centre which is moving to Dovedale Campus in mid-2016.

Some construction equipment and machinery may be stored in Car Park 1 during the project, however staff and students will continue to have access to the car park throughout the work. Low levels of construction noise are expected during the project.

Currently located on Ilam Campus next to the UCSA building, the Early Learning Centre is being moved to Dovedale Campus to avoid any disruption when the existing UCSA building is demolished and rebuilt. Demolition work is due to start on the UCSA building in the middle of the year and construction work on the new building is expected to finish in 2018.

The building work on Dovedale Campus is due to finish in July. For more information about this project contact David Wong, Project Manager.
