Tauraroa Area School Gymnasium Redevelopment
From 2011 to 2016 the team from Scope had worked with the school on establishing the scope for the project, presented a comprehensive business case supporting the projects’ viability and negotiated the school’s 10 Year Property Plan to the Ministry of Education.
The procurement plan determined that the best possible outcome would be to use a design build process and from this four valid tenders were received. Northland-based contractor Guyco Construction were chosen as the lead contractor based on a novated design. Guyco used architectural practice Mandeno Design and Engineering firm, RS Eng Ltd as their main consultants.
Scope conducted early contractor involvement, managed a complex design and construction tender process and oversaw the project through all design phases to completion. Despite budgetary and logistical challenges the building was successfully completed on time for the start of the school year in 2021. The Gymnasium was nominated as a finalist of New Zealand Institute of Building (NZIOB) Awards for projects between $0.5M and $5M in 2021.
