Building site

Our construction students learn by building houses. These are real houses that are sold after the programme finishes.

Our carpentry students learn on-site about framing, roofing, internal linings, fitting windows and hanging doors.

Plus if you're learning another trade such as painting, plumbing or electrical, you might get the opportunity to use your skills on the houses too.

Learn the culture of a work site. Work with different materials. Learn health and safety. Perfect your skills.


Building site is located in our Wellington School of Construction campus at 18 Western Hutt Road, Petone.
