Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga (HNZPT) is seeking a suitable contractor to undertake cosmetic plaster repairs at Old Government Buildings (OGB), 55 Lambton Quay, Wellington. OGB is currently occupied by Victoria University of Wellington's Faculty of Law (VUW), which has a student population of 300 - 600 students and upwards of 50 staff. The ability to manage siteworks within an occupied building is paramount, maintaining minimal disturbance to VUW.
OGB is a Category I historic place that has received extensive cosmetic damage to its interior during earthquakes in 2013 and 2016. The earthquakes caused diagonal cracking of the plaster throughout the interior walls; from cosmetic hairline cracks in the finishing and floating coats, to deeper cracks into the scratch coat of the lime plaster. Damage in places has led to plaster failing, which has left areas of wall where the timber laths underneath are exposed. In areas where more modern gib walling is located, there are cracks along gib joints.
The damage requires repair to restore OGB to its former glory as the once grand offices of New Zealand's public service and to eliminate any health and safety risk due to loose plaster, dust and the risk of further dislodgement.
HNZPT wish to undertake repairs to study rooms in the law library in the southern wing, large book rooms in the library, small library store rooms, staff offices on the first, second and third floors, and the back southern stair ascending four levels. The current identified scope of plastering works is, but not limited to:
• Repairing existing gib joints
• Replacing lath and plaster with gib
• Some traditional lath and plaster works.
• Painting to where plastering has been repaired and applied.
