Victoria University Rutherford House Extension


Rutherford House is currently being redeveloped to include a six-floor annexe on the Featherston Street side of the current building that will provide modern, fit-for-purpose teaching spaces.

The ground and mezzanine floors, adjacent to the Lambton Quay side of the building, will have informal learning and teaching spaces, retail facilities and be 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 include 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 staged project is the fact that we are working in and around an operational University.
