The Ministry requires Master Planning and Lead Design Services for the Redevelopment at Arthur Street School.
Arthur Street School is the oldest in Dunedin and is a full primary school (year 1-8) with a current roll of 171. The build roll is 205 for this project which will be in accordance with the school’s SPG entitlement. The Business Case identified significant compliance issues with non-complying fire egress and accessibility, contains asbestos and extremely poor infrastructure. Current DQLS standards are not met. The whole site is serviced by a dilapidated stormwater and sewer system. Electrical connections to the buildings are via overhead lines. The school has insufficient power supply and an old switchboard and distribution board, both require upgrading to comply with building codes. The area is considered to have archaeological significance. The buildings are not fit for purpose, development through Capital Investment has been determined as the best way forward. Construction completion of the school is expected by July 2023.
Project Works include:
Redevelopment of the entire school to address significant infrastructure and accessibility issues.
This project requires work to be undertaken in two stages to minimise decanting and disruption to the school and has an estimated completion date of mid-2023.
1.1 Project Scope
Build nine teaching spaces, admin and hall.
Full site infrastructure upgrade.

1.2 Master Plan
The masterplan will be a holistic, future focused, infrastructure plan for the entire school site which identifies a staged sequence which will both allow for the continued operation of the school and redevelopment of aged assets to improve and complement educational outcomes of the school.
