Ohope Beach School Redevelopment

Redevelopment planning has commenced.Ohope Beach School is a Primary School located south of Whakatane in the Bay of Plenty with a roll of approximately 350 children.

After a long period of investigation of a range of options for the school, a Master Plan for significant Redevelopment of the existing site has been agreed, and the Preliminary Design process commenced in earnest late in 2015.

A number of the school buildings are affected by weather-tightness and other dilapidation issues, which are exacerbated by the site being prone to flooding during extreme weather conditions.

A present a large portion of the school is operating from ageing prefab buildings, many of which are in a poor state of repair and these are to be demolished. The main admin block and 2 teaching blocks are also being demolished and a new 2 storey block with 12 new teaching spaces, Administration facilities and a library is to be constructed.

Signification site civil works is also planned to reduce the risk of flooding during severe rain events.

PCG Solutions has been involved with this site right through the feasibility / options investigation stages and we have now been confirmed as the Project Manager for this circa $14 million redevelopment.
