The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has had a presence at Templeview since the early 1950’s. The settlement is home to the Church’s most important temple in NZ . The Church College of New Zealand (CCNZ) campus provided education and board for up to 700 students from years 9 to13. In 2009 it was decided to close CCNZ and consideration was then given to alternative uses for the site that would preserve the vitality of Templeview.

Construkt was chosen to work alongside the Church, and in collaboration with Bloxam Burnett & Olliver, Planners and Engineers and Mansergh Graham Landscape Architects to prepare a concept masterplan for the CCNZ campus.

Contemporaneously the church then embarked on a separate and bold programme for further development and revitalisation of their church campus alongside Walker Architects.

Templeview is just ten minute drive from Hamilton’s city centre so there was obvious potential to grow the community by attracting new residents – both church members and others, but first a plan change was needed to gain the right zoning for residential and commercial activity on the old school site. Comprehensive Development Plans (CDP’s) were prepared in two sectors to allow staged development and resource consents applied for. Both have been granted and the Church is now seeking development partners to execute the project.
