College makeover costs $38 million

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 13/12/2016

The cost of redeveloping Auckland's Macleans College has increased to more than $38 million, Education Minister Hekia Parata says.

The government has had to put an extra $20.7m into the project because problems such as lack of weathertightness have proved "broader in scope" than originally identified.

"Macleans College is an important school in the local education network, and this significant investment will ensure it provides modern facilities that inspire students to succeed to the best of their abilities." Ms Parata said.

Work on the college began in 2010 and so far 12 blocks have been upgraded.
