What We Do

Reefton Area School

Whilst this project was what might appear to be a simple matter of refurbishment, whereby the existing condition of the buildings had deteriorated substantially due to water ingress, there were a number of additional facets to this one which added to the task.

The scope of work called for complete roof and cladding replacement, as well as partial frame replacement and the application of preservative treatment to all existing timbers. Modifications needed to be made to the existing mansard roof structure to form a more traditional gable roof. Additionally, the existing timber windows and doors were upgraded to double glazed aluminium profile units to give the building a complete transformation.

Due to the geographical location of Reefton, the school is prone to high wind loading on all four sides and, along with the rainfall levels during the project, it was therefore decided to fully shrink-wrap the gymnasium building during the renovation.

The project was completed on schedule and on budget.

Repairing any commercial building damaged by an earthquake brings with it a series of challenges; but when that building is also a high-tech support centre for Canterbury and the South Island, which needs to remain working 24/7 throughout the construction phase and that’s a whole different level of difficulty.

Enabling commercial tenants to resume trading in the shortest possible timeframe is a challenge in itself when repairing earthquake damaged premises, but when further damage is only discovered during the project, then it can place strain on both timelines and budget. Dealing with these issues professionally is paramount to success.
