We are seeking an independent architectural consultancy with a façade and roof remediation design experience that can deliver:

*Detailed Design drawings and specification suitable for a building consent and tendering to main contractors (following the concept design).
*Lead the design team and engage required design sub-consultants
*Construction monitoring

The College of English building is located in the Dovedale campus and was constructed in 1991 (north block) and extended in 1996 (central and south block). It comprises of a central spine (covered corridor linkway including reception area, toilets, stairwells) and five wings connected to the central spine (classrooms and office space). The central linkway roof type is a butyl membrane roof while the wings roofs are lightweight steel sheeting fixed to timber framed roof structure. Rainwater goods consist of metal rain heads, gutters and downpipes. Walls are constructed in a mixture of reinforced concrete block walls and timber frame. The external façade consists of lightweight cladding (direct fixed textured fibre cement) and glazing systems. with a cladding finish.
A building survey noted that the membrane roofs reached the end of their serviceable life and require replacing to ensure correct falls and weathertightness. The roofs have suffered from poor design and incorrect repairs, leading to water ingress and subsequent damage to the building components in vulnerable areas. Signs of water damage are noticeable in the interior. The rain heads are undersized and the windows within the covered corridor linkway are in a poor condition with failed seals allowing water to ingress internally and damage the adjacent wall linings.
