A+W-NZ AND SGA COLLABORATE ON BUILDING EDUCATIONStrachan Group Associates (SGA) and A+W-NZ both firmly believe in providing construction education for architects, architectural graduates and students. You may all be familiar with the excellent work Dave Strachan has carried out as Adjuct Professor at Unitec until recently, guiding students through a prefabrication process and providing completed locatable buildings to community groups. One of those students was Maria Hosking, who has now joined the SGA team as a graduate and is running this project alongside Dave. With the relocation of SGA to Rossmay Terrace in Kingsland, they have developed their own workshop facilities to create a design-build heaven, with Crate Building Innovation.

A+W-NZ are very proud to partner with SGA on one of their upcoming projects, for a project for the Motu Kaikoura Trust, replacing their research and study building destroyed by arson in 2013. The new building, designed by SGA, will be prefabricated at the SGA and Crate workshops in Kingsland and barged to Kaikoura Island (off Great Barrier Island) for assembly.
This course is being offered to architectural graduates and Registered Architects, to gain confidence and further knowledge on a construction site. While the various schools of Architecture and Spatial Design provide building education to students, opportunities are less often available to architectural graduates and architects, and SGA and A+W-NZ aim to fill that gap.
The timeline for the project is August / September 2017.
