Owairoa Primary School has 12 permanent relocatable classrooms in the southwest part of the school that are affected by water damage. The site is steep in this area and the classrooms have been built too close to retaining walls. There is visible water damage internally in some places and air tests have found slightly elevated levels of stachybotrys in two of the classrooms. The classrooms also do not meet DQLS standards.
In addition, the timber floors of the buildings are poorly connected to the piles with guide nails and are unlikely to meet building code wind loading requirements. The school also has six temporary relocatable classrooms on its field that were originally supposed to be temporary solutions to roll growth, but have been there for more than 3 years and as part of this project these will be removed when the new buildings are completed.
The works involve replacing five classrooms in block 14 and another seven classrooms from blocks 10, 11, 12 and 13 plus the six temporary relocatable classrooms on the field. This replaces 18 classrooms in total, retaining the school’s current capacity of 38 classrooms. Four temporary relocatable classrooms may be required as the work will be staged, we do not expect any additional temporary classrooms will be required. 18 classrooms in the southwest part of the site are to be rebuilt and 6 temporary classrooms on the field are to be removed, as well as any other temporary classroom installed for this project.
The project is proposed to be delivered in 3 stages: Stage one will be the demolition of block 14 which has 5 teaching spaces and the construction of the new 2 storey 12 classroom block. Stage two will be the demolition of classroom blocks 10, 11, 12 and 13 which is 7 teaching spaces and the construction of the new 2 storey 6 teaching space building. Stage three will be the removal of the 6 relocatable classrooms that are currently situated on the sports field and make good of all areas within the work area.
