The school recently underwent a substantial redevelopment and replacement of deteriorated buildings on the site. This project did not address drainage issues that have been observed on site since the redevelopment so the Ministry would like to install additional drainage to reduce water pooling and ensure the site will cope with the rainfall over winter 2019 and beyond. The affected parts of the site can be made available during work/school hours for the works to take place. The works need to be completed by the end of April to ensure the school has adequate drainage for winter to allow the school to remain fully operational and outdoor areas usable.
The solution will involve works across the site, however focused on the area around the sports field. The works will include forming a new swale, and accompanying catchpits as well as upgrading or modifying the existing drainage services on the site, installation of a Novaflow drain around the courts and infill with topsoil and finished with grass to allow for additional ground drainage. The full scope of works is outlined in the drawings produced by Chester.
The project can be carried out during school/works hours as it is unlikely to impact on the delivery of the schools educational program. The works should be completed by the end of April to ensure the drainage is in place and commissioned before winter. Any staging or phasing of the works will be identified by the contractor in conjunction with the school.
