Situation

Victoria University of Wellington has expanded its Kelburn campus with a new science teaching and research building; Te Toki a Rata.  The new building adds 12,000m2 of science teaching, research and laboratory facilities to the Kelburn campus. It is along, low four-story building; some of which is below ground level. Te Toki a Rata encompasses modern teaching and research environments that are designed for the digital age.

Approach

Central Heating New Zealand provided 7 Baxi Power HT floor standing condensing gas boilers with stainless steel combustion chambers and electronic cascade management.  The boilers provided the specified 920kW of required heat.

The heating solution designed by BECA included radiators, underfloor and trench heaters. Underfloor heating provided the ideal solution for the open spaces of the auditorium. Radiators and trench heaters were specified to combat façade loss which was exacerbated by the building's heavily glazed design

Outcome

Te Toki a Rata has become the heart of the first-year experience at Victoria University.  The tailored heating solution provides a comfortable environment in which students study Social Sciences, Science, Engineering, Education and Health.
