The rapidly growing Queenstown population called for Wakatipu High School to expand its facilities and infrastructure in order to cater for the increased roll-growth.
The first phase of the project was the construction of a science lab and a graphics room, designed and constructed in less than 23 weeks. The fast-track programme ensured the buildings were completed on time for the start of the second term of the school year.
This was followed by a second phase of design and construction of a new two-storey 6 classroom block and the upgrade of the school's infrastructure. The new block was to be known as the Robertson Block after the school's founding principal Keith Robertson.
Additional roll-growth prompted the school to add a further two classrooms to the Robertson Block just months after its completion.
As the local population is expected to continue to grow further provision has been made within the Robertson Block for additional capacity.
