The Refectory building is one of Massey’s original heritage buildings located on our Manawatu Campus. It was built in 1929-30 and is a Category Two Listed Building in both the Palmerston North District Plan and on the Heritage New Zealand list. The building was vacated in 2012 after it was deemed earthquake prone. This started a planning process that saw the University decide to not only strengthen the building, but to also completely refurbish and extend it by way of a new Pavilion to be built on the Southeast corner.

To achieve this, we are seeking tenders from construction companies with extensive experience in seismic strengthening and heritage restoration projects to carry out what will be a difficult strengthening project. We anticipate the project will start around December this year and last approximately 12 months.

The work relating to the seismic strengthening component of this project is extremely invasive. Minimising damage to the existing building fabric will be a high priority, and contractors will need to remain focused on this throughout the contract works. Other important factors are:
• Thorough management systems
• The capacity to supply adequate resources to the project both on and off site to ensure agreed programmes are adhered to
• Highly experienced site management staff being dedicated to the project for the duration of the project
• Sound sub-contractor management systems and agreements in place to ensure adherence to contract documents
• Sound health and safety systems in place
• The financial capacity to carry out the works
• Open and honest communication by all parties
