Hobsonville Point Primary School

104 Hobsonville Road, Hobsonville

Venue Overview

The project will see a new primary and secondary school built as part of a new ‘suburb’, Hobsonville Point, situated halfway between Albany and Westgate on State Highway 18.


ASC Architects is a key component of Learning Infrastructure Partners, winners of this first ever public private partnership school project in New Zealand. They won the project in competition against local and international consortia – putting into perspective the magnitude of this achievement for their company.


Learning Infrastructure Partners is a consortium made up of firms with significant experience in designing and building New Zealand schools, including ASC Architects (design partner), Hawkins Construction, Programmed Facility Maintenance (maintenance), Morrison & Co Public Infrastructure Partnership Fund (equity funding) and Westpac Bank (senior debt).


Together ASC Architects will design, build and finance the schools and be responsible for maintaining them throughout the 25 - year contract. Both schools, with a combined student population of 1,600, will be significantly different from any other New Zealand school in terms of construction quality, building performance and their effectiveness as 21st century learning environments.


Students and teachers will have a range of innovative, flexible and functional spaces to support a wide variety of teaching and learning practices. Outdoor and indoor learning spaces will be safe and inspirational, providing students with the opportunity and encouragement to achieve their full potential. Designs have been developed on environmentally friendly and ecologically sound principles with genuine commitment to sustainability issues. The buildings will be built to a 5 Star Green Star Certified Rating, with the quality of the building skin and internal environment far above the standard of any school previously built in New Zealand.
