Victoria University Rutherford House Extension


Rutherford House has been redeveloped to include a six-floor annexe on the Featherston Street side of the current building that has provided modern, fit-for-purpose teaching spaces.

The ground and mezzanine floors, adjacent to the Lambton Quay side of the building, have informal learning and teaching spaces, retail facilities and is a focal point for engaging with surrounding business and government communities. The lower levels are designed to be a social area, similar to the award-winning Hub at the Kelburn Campus.

Works included new water chillers, air handlers and pump sets to provide reticulated chilled water, heating water, and tempered fresh air to 170 in ceiling fan coil units.

One of the biggest challenges for this project was the fact that we were working in and around an operational University.
