Construction of ACG Tauranga’s new preschool is well past the halfway point, with foundations laid, structural framework erected, the roof now on, and works starting in the interior with the installation of underfloor heating.
ACG Tauranga Principal Shawn Hutchinson said everything was on track for a February opening.
“As far as builds go, it’s progressing smoothly and really starting to take shape.”
Once completed, the building will be able to cater for 70 children from the ages of three months to five years and will provide a complete educational pathway from preschool to Year 13 on the Pyes Pa site.
Form Design and Construction started work on the site in July and it is due to be completed at the end of January, with the centre opening as soon as possible afterwards following council inspections.
The 353m2 building will be a flexible area containing three rooms – one for children from the age of three months to two years, and the other two for children from 2-5 years of age. The building has been designed by Ignite Architects with indoor outdoor flow in mind, to allow children to easily head outside to play in a fun, safe and secure environment.
