PROJECT: Tai Tapu Primary School
CUSTOMER: Ministry of Education
The Tai Tapu School project involved the construction of a new Modern Learning Environment classroom block, including three core teaching areas, subsidiary spaces and toilet block.
Specific issues with the project were identified; heritage trees, mains power/transformer upgrade and a detailed traffic management plan given the specific access issues to the site.
This was a high profile project within the community given the greater Christchurch Education Renewal Programme and the merger of another school in the area.
Corbel has been credited with getting the project back on track in terms of programme and budget.
Part of our role became managing the consultant team on behalf of the Ministry to redesign the structure to meet budget and to deliver a delayed project within programme. We have been specifically complimented by the ministry in this respect.
