Halswell Residential College have indicated that their school laundry and ancillary heating (diesel fuelled) boilers have reached their expiry (boilers are 50 and 45 years old respectively). The last Aquaheat audit of the boilers on 11th June 2018 revealed that modifications are required for health and safety reasons. Furthermore, the school have been paying for higher maintenance costs each year to keep the boilers operational.

Therefore, it was agreed with the school that the Ministry would engage a company to provide a feasibility options report. WSP-Opus were engaged in June 2019 to provide the Options report for the Laundry and Ancillary heating boilers. Following review of the Options report the Ministry elected to progress the option to decommission the laundry boiler and provide electrical site infrastructure upgrades to power the new washers and dryers. Furthermore, the electrical infrastructure upgrade will provide power to new heat pumps and panel heaters within the gym, corridors and admin offices.

The Ministry now require the services of a suitable mechanical and electrical type contractor to carry out the proposed works.

The intended program overview for this project is to carry out the majority of the Contract Works during the end of Term 1 school holidays (starting Monday 13th April 2020 and ending Friday 24th April 2020) to minimise disruption.

As there are some changes to the water supply for the laundry equipment this includes the provision of back flow prevention devices. Therefore, a building consent exemption has been applied for to Christchurch City Council. The result of this exemption is still pending.
