Wellington Girls' College requires a professional architectural design consultant to receive the brief and prepare conceptual ideas, provide developed design documentation services and assist the design team to provide a robust, innovative and feasible solution to the project to refurbish the science laboratories and replace the metal roof of Block A at Wellington Girls’ College. Proposed Service Engineers are required as part of the Architectural presentation.

The key timing for the college is to have construction occurring between October and January. It is preferable for a contractor to be sourced who has the capacity and resources to complete the entire extent of work in one phase. If this is not able to be done then the work will be actioned in up to three phases over consecutive years beginning October 2018, 2019 and 2020.

Currently there are eight science laboratories over three levels in Block A. It is proposed to develop a ninth lab utilising the Maori studies classroom which in turn will be relocated to an alternate space in the college. This work will seek to replace all joinery, fittings and fixtures in the spaces and propose new layouts to better suit delivery of the current curriculum. ILE aspects of the spaces will be addressed including double glazed windows, acoustic ceilings and wall construction along with new linings and finishes.

The existing metal roof is to be replaced including gutter linings. This work will also fit anchor points/restraint systems to allow ongoing maintenance access.

As Wellington Girls’ College is unable to offer temporary space on site for the classes to relocate to whilst the laboratories are refurbished one of the key design outcomes of the accepted architectural solutions will be the minimalizing of on site work. This may be achieved through prefabrication or clever sequencing of the construction phase.

The project budget is $1,700,000.00
