Overview

Adventure School is comprised of timber and fibre cement sheet clad single storey buildings created in early 1970’s including Block E and others (Block B) of prefabricated transportable type. The work proposed alters the plan layout to part of Block B to achieve a shared breakout space and refurbishment of classrooms and toilets. To Block B an alteration to an existing corner space will extend the floor footprint to create a breakout space sufficiently sized to serve three classrooms. This work would include foundations, walls with cladding, linings, insulation and windows, metal roofing and insulation will cover the space and unite the adjacent buildings.

The remaining work in Block B and E will include replacement of interior linings including new acoustic finishes, new storage joinery, new floor and wall finishes, and new services associated with the works and replace timber windows with aluminium to a limited extent.

The special needs work in the contract will alter an existing toilet area to create a universal bathroom, a breakout space and three individual externally accessed unisex toilets. The work also addresses accessibility about the school in the form of ramps into buildings and up on earth bank, door thresholds and removal of paving obstacles.

An asbestos report has been commissioned which has confirmed areas of the exterior cladding to be asbestos.

This procurement looks for a professional building contractor that can employ appropriately experienced staff, competent sub contractors and proven suppliers to deliver a highly performing and robust refurbishment project.

The scheme will be traditionally executed with a full design team employed by the School Board of Trustees producing full construction documentation.
