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.

Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Waitaha

This project was essentially a weather-tightness assignment involving the School’s Main Hall and supporting facilities. What might appear a straightforward project was complicated by a capped budget and the tight deadline to hand the site back to the School on schedule.
