BIRKENHEAD COLLEGE

Pacific Environments have worked on various projects with Birkenhead College from 2002. Master planning provided a growth strategy for the school with the theatre and music suite completing a ten-year plan. Projects included science classrooms, the redevelopment of the theatre and music suite, a new gymnasium, change rooms, staff facilities and library.

 

Environmentally a low speed high volume ventilation system provides air supply at low level under the tiered seating in the theatre, and extracted through high-level roof ventilators. Elsewhere in the college rainwater is collected for field irrigation and solar hot water is used to preheat showers.
