Fernworth School Redevelopment

 

Classroom Block and Infrastructure Upgrade

Signal Management Group were initially engaged by Fernworth School to manage the planning, design and construction of a new four classroom block, relocation and upgrade of two existing classrooms and a Special Needs Facilities for Fernworth Primary.

The project also required the upgrade of infrastructure services, particularly the boiler and electrical capacity.

Reading Recovery Centre

In this subsequent stage, the school engaged Signal to manage the relocation and upgrade of the Reading Recovery Centre. This building was originally located at the Elston Lea school site.

The building is fully integrated with the school's existing facilities and is serviced by direct access from Pomona Street. A drive in drop off access has been formed providing car parking facilities for use by the Reading Recovery Centre staff and members of the public.

Dental Clinic

In a further stage of development at the school, Signal managed the placement of another existing classroom in close proximity to the Reading Recovery Centre. This is utilised as a Dental Clinic for the greater Southland District catchment area.

The classroom has been redeveloped to incorporate two dental surgeries, a utility area, staff room, reception area and amenities. The clinic also shares the drive in drop off access and car parking facilities used for the Reading Recovery Centre.

Condition Assessment and 10 Year Property Plan

Signal's relationship with Fernworth Primary School continues with Signal having been appointed by the school to complete a building condition assessment and 10 Year Property Plan, as required by the Ministry of Education.
