This Request for Proposals (RFP), issued by the Ministry of Education (the Ministry/the Principal to the Contract) is an open invitation to Design Consultants (Tenderers) to submit a Proposal for CW2020-100 Te Pohue (The School) – Redevelopment Project – Lead Design Services (the Services).

The Project background is:
i. Te Pohue Primary School is a full primary school in Northern Hawkes Bay.

ii. It has two main blocks, Block A and Block B:

1. Block A comprises teaching spaces, administrative spaces, library, toilets, storage and resource rooms and was constructed in the 1980s. It backs on to a steep bank which is not part of the school’s property. A cadastral survey in 2019 identified that part of Block A encroaches on the neighbouring property. Earlier there had been mature trees planted on the bank protecting the school from the south, however these have been removed and the bank is now more susceptible to erosion. Following the identification of a crack in the building’s ring foundation in the area of the bank the advice of a consulting engineer was sought. The outcome of this was the advice that there is no imminent danger to the structural integrity of Block A but the current siting requires remediation to the land if the building is to remain in its current position.
2. Block B comprises a hall, legitimate space ECC, storage, and staff/toilet areas. It is a Portable Modular Classroom (PMC) and was constructed in 1967 with an intended design life of 15-20 years. The hall and ECC rooms do not meet Designing Quality Learning Spaces (DQLS) Standards. It has also had temporary structural strengthening and shows some weathertightness damage.

iii. Lead design services are sought for concept design initially, with a reserved right for further services through to construction completion to provide modern learning and auxiliary spaces for the school.
The end of life Block B is to be demolished and it key functions incorporated into Block A as part of a full refurbishment of Block A
