AUT’s A1 building, set for completion in 2024, is the first step in the university’s masterplan to reinvigorate the North Campus, providing a new social and academic heart. A timber framed atrium connects the new building with existing facilities.
AUT is the most energy efficient university in New Zealand. A1 builds on this ambition, achieving 2030 net zero carbon targets for operational and embodied carbon and setting the industry standard for energy efficient consumption in Australasia. An innovative, post-tensioned LVL timber structure combined with the adaptive reuse of an existing building delivers this outstanding result.
Come and view the build in progress at this one-time only site visit.
