TechPark was designed to be a state-of-the-art educational facility housing all of Manukau Institute of Technology’s professional engineering and trade schools under a single roof. A two-stage public selection process led to a partnership between Haydn and Rollett as the developer, builder, and owner, and with MIT as the tenant. The conceptual design involved rethinking the model for professional engineering and trade schools in a polytechnic environment. This design process resulted in large open-space workshops, laboratories, and flexible learning spaces. Haydn and Rollett wore their multiple hats with clarity and transparency and delivered a quality result to a satisfied user.
