Shirley Boys’ High School and Avonside Girls’ High School (’the Schools’) are due to relocate and co-locate to a common site at QEII in the east of Christchurch, with effect from early 2019. The Ministry of Education has contracted ShapEd Consortium to design, build and operate the school under a PPP model.
The Schools’ have identified opportunities for efficiencies and a cohesive approach from the sharing ICT resources on the new co-located site at QEII as well as providing seamless service and support to the students, teachers and parent communities of all schools. The expectation is that when the staff and students move into the new building ICT technologies “just work”.
Torque IP and the Buyer are seeking proposals from highly qualified, capable, and experienced system integrators to initially design, build and deploy a new server and network infrastructure for the two schools which are to be co-located onto a new campus from April 2019. The successful integrator is also expected to provide maintenance and support on a day to day basis once the schools are operational.
