An existing old building was demolished, then the prefabricated component of the build was a new two story building, which was attached to this central city lodge in Auckland. 36 bedrooms and 14 ensuite bathrooms were added, along with a new kitchen, shared lounge and a manager’s office. There was also significant alterations undertaken to the existing building as well.
Throughout the project there were 16 tenants residing in the adjoining lodge, so great care was taken to minimise disruption. Health and safety was paramount to ensure tenants, staff and visitors were safe to move around during the construction period.
Off site factory manufacturing allowed us to achieve a more efficient programme for this project. Prefabricated components could be delivered at off peak times, and with difficult access to the new building site, a crane was used to install the wall panels, floor panels, and ensuite bathroom pods efficiently.
