Law and Management Building
The University of Waikato is to mark its 50th anniversary with plans for a multi-million dollar building to house Te Piringa - Faculty of Law and Waikato Management School's Centre for Corporate and Executive Education.
The new building will have a five-storey office tower and rooms at a below-ground level that will feature a "living lawn" roof. The tower will have vertical sunshade vanes to symbolise the tukutuku reed panels of a traditional meeting house, natural ventilation, and glazed corridor walls for natural lighting. The tower will be linked below ground level to the existing Management building on Hillcrest Road – beside the lower entrance to the PWC lecture theatre at level 1, and between the existing computer labs at level 0.
New teaching rooms, offices, interview/meeting rooms, a boardroom, computer labs, student services and reception areas are all part of the design, as are a moot courtroom and sunken courtyard.
