Rangi Ruru Girls' School Project Blue Sky - Stage 1

Following an initial tender for Stage 1A, Leighs was engaged to play an active role in the design, value management, project cost estimating and full product and trade procurement of this project.

A fast-track open book delivery process was used to deliver new state-of-the-art facilities, within a programme that optimised the school’s calendar, whilst minimising any disruption to the normal day-to-day running of the school. This approach enabled a cost effective design, surety of product and trade, an immediate on-site start with reduced construction timeframes and earliest construction completion dates, to be achieved through an open partnering relationship approach.

To date, Leighs Construction have developed a 2000m² Chemistry, Physics and Biology Lab facility, 600m² of IT and Research facilities, an 800m² Social Science block and 800m² of general academic space.

We also constructed a 2000m², two-storey, Music and Drama facility and significant structural repair and refurbishment to1800m² of Art and Technology facilities.

This $100,000,000 project is a stunning example of innovative design and high quality construction, and was handed over on time, with very positive cient feedback.
