a. Whangarei Boys’ High School is a state, single sex, decile 5 boys’ school, catering for Year 9 to 13 boys, the school roll is 1106 (March 2019), the build roll for the redevelopment project is 1250, and the master planning roll is 1600.
b. A master plan was prepared based on the redevelopment of the upper northern elevation of the current site, which consists of demolition, rebuild, and the refurbishment of existing buildings over a number of stages. The DRP report outlines a number of issues with this proposal.
c. A new feasibility study including a new bulk and location plan was completed in February 2019. This study identified that a greater proportion of the school could be built new on the lower western field, within the available funding and in line with the DRP recommendations. This could be delivered via simpler staging, shorter programme, reduced disruption and improved functionality of the final deliverable. The school will be rebuilt new on the Western Field, with the exception of the following existing buildings to be retained/refurbished: Whare, Gymnasium, Music and Drama Block, Block Y (Health & PE), Auto Store. Other assets to be retained including Swimming Pool, Hardcourts and Caretaker’s shed. This approach results in the replacement of approximately 80% of buildings.
The following key assumptions have been made in the feasibility study to support the cost assessment of this option:
• Simple design features,
• Light weight structure, cladding and roof,
• Assume 15m wide teaching wings with external first floor circulation,
• Assume predominantly natural ventilation, salvage/redeploy existing heat pumps where required,
• Air Handling Units to specialist teaching spaces,
• Assume one build phase,
• Reuse existing access road and hard court space,
It is envisaged that replacing school buildings in a single construction phase on the lower Western Field would be more cost effective, faster with less risks. Draft programme shows an estimated project completion for the new build by Term 1 2022 opening.

In terms of risks, an extensive geotechnical investigation was completed, additional $1.68m has been allowed for in the estimate for the piling required for the known ground conditions. An additional $1.32m has been allowed for to address flood plain/drainage issues.
