|26 months (over 2 stages)
This project included the demolition of the existing building, significant in-ground works and a complex base design, to combat the unstable elements and a restrictive site.
We were brought on board by an Auckland-based developer to project manage the planning, construction and earthquake strengthening stages over a 12-month period, until final sign-off and the issuing of a Code of Compliance Certificate.
As part of this, we liaised with and coordinated the tenants and surrounding businesses, to ensure they could continue their business operations during the construction.
We also engaged with an archaeologist during the forward planning, which proved invaluable as it avoided a costly delay of up to 12 weeks (versus if the application was made during construction).
The finished project is a high-quality, multi-use building, housing offices and restaurants. Despite a robust close-out phase dealing with all quality assurance checks and extension of time claims, all key objectives were met and having the strong skills of our specialist consultants aided in the delivery of this project.
