When one of the South Islands' biggest schools was running out of space for new students a new eight-classroom teaching block using timber frames was proposed. The Waimea College building utilises locally, sustainably sourced LVL, ply hybrid walls, and Potius™ Floor Box and Roof Panels, with the only use of concrete being in the foundations and slab. An acoustic batten and cradle system was used on top of the Potius™ floors and a warm roof was used. The move to timber has saved 270 tonnes of CO2e avoided throughout the construction process. The majority of the structural timber was sourced from plantations and manufactured within an 80km radius of the school.
