Takapuna Grammar School, Georgea Tindall Performing Arts Centre, comprises;

 Block DD - two storey building containing classrooms and theatre, built in 2006
 Block M1 - one storey building containing classrooms, built in 1999

Since 2012 the Ministry’s Building Improvement Programme (BIP) has carried out weathertightness remediation work based on Destructive Testing (DT) reports. These DT reports were focussed on the Ministry’s policy of identifying factors that might lead to weathertightness failure of building elements at some stage as well as actual weathertightness failures and consequential damage.

Prendos NZ Ltd was engaged by the Ministry of Education’s Building Improvement Programme (BIP) in 2014 to conduct a destructive investigation of Blocks DD and M1 to identify weathertightness issues and ultimately recommend repair solutions. A Building Report was produced on 15/12/2014 and 11/03/2015 respectively.

The Prendos Building Reports conclude that the building is failing to perform in its basic function of providing a structurally stable, weathertight envelope.
