Project description:

This project included the design and construction of a new administration block and an 8 classroom block, netball courts and other siteworks.

This project has been around for a number of years and had encountered issues with budget and MoE funding approval. Xigo was engaged, last year, to get the project going by managing a Value Engineering process, procurement of the contractor and now the management of the construction works.

Our role

Although this project has been underway since 2010, Xigo involvement has been since December 2015.

Construction commenced in September 2016 - to be completed in December 2017.

The project has already faced significant delays due to unforeseen asbestos.

The MoE/ School has also introduced additional scope involving repairs to the Totara block as well as an upgrade to the netball court.

Construction is well underway with administration and classroom blocks with the project moving ahead on track for December 2017 finish date.

This project demonstrates our:

  • Experience in MoE project management delivery
  • Ability to manage unforeseen site issues (asbestos) that had ability to cause significant delay
  • Ability to manage project with a tight budget constraints
