Kaurilands School, in West Auckland, is a large urban primary school that caters for students in Years 1 to 6. The welcoming and inclusive school culture provides many opportunities for parents to be involved. Parents particularly appreciate that their child is not ‘lost’ within the large school setting. The school community is proud of their school.
Since 2012 the Ministry of Education’s Building Improvement Programme has carried out weathertightness remediation work based on Destructive Testing (DT) reports. These DT reports were focused 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. Kaurialnds School’s Hall has been identified with multiple weathertightness issues and require remediation to rectify these issues.
The Hall was built in 1999 and is in relatively good condition apart from the weathertightness issues and resultant damage. The building is a mix of precast panel and timber framed walls, the timber framed walls are clad in sheet metal. The floor is timber over timber sub floor framing on piles. The roofing is sheet metal of stell purlins on stell portal frame.
The works will need to be undertaken with the Hall and adjoining amenities shut down. The works will likely take a minimum of 12 weeks to complete, but a full programme needs to be confirmed.
One of the main entries into both the school and administration block from Atkinson Road is through the amenities block lobby to the south of the Hall, the amenities are requires a reroof and works to the decayed amenities wall, so works will close this down during the construction period. The wing walls are also near the playground entry from the teacher’s car park, this is a regular entry/exit point form the playground. With the required remediation to both external and internal walls the Hall will need to be closed for a period. The Hall has in the past been used by outside groups and this will need to also be considered.
Whilst the focus of this report is towards weathertightness remediation, other elements of work that are packaged into the overall project for this building include:
1.The Hall toilets are being upgraded as part of this project
