St Ignatius Loyola School

St Ignatius Loyola School

Project Summary

The St Ignatius of Loyola Catholic College project brings a new addition to the Catholic Diocese of Auckland schools network.

Located south of Auckland in Drury, the sizable development includes the construction of two main buildings, featuring a four-storey teaching block, a hall, a chapel, and a music suite. This development enables the school to support a roll of up to 470 students from years seven to thirteen. Within the teaching block, there are facilities for hard tech, computer studies, food tech, a library, and general teaching spaces, along with supporting resource and administration spaces. The teaching block also houses the staff room as well as Level Three, which predominantly contains the science labs.

The project includes the development of the entire complex, including civil works for foundations and services. Notable aspects of the project include the provision of a potable water treatment plant, used for rainwater harvesting and bore water treatment, as no mains water serves the site. In addition, a large wastewater treatment plant and associated dripper field were also installed, as there are no mains sewers available. Works were also undertaken at the Burt Road entrance to meet resource consent requirements.

Each project is special; however, education projects are particularly special, and we look forward to many generations learning within this exceptional facility.
