The Elam Hall Student Accommodation building is a first for New Zealand. The 14 Story accommodation block building consists of 468 individual pre fabricated modular units built by Stanley Construction.
Adding a new wing to an historic hotel in a sensitive alpine environment brought out the
best in the Stanley team. The Chateau Tongariro is a 75-year-old building protected by the Historic Places Trust, so all finishing work had to be in keeping with the hotel’s original décor.
Ocean Shores Retirement Village boasts 124 villas and 84 apartments; housed in two 3-storey apartment blocks. Primarily a remediation project; the village took the opportunity to also upgrade all their facilities.
Building a 37-unit apartment complex in Napier using modular units saved the developer
approximately four months in construction time. Stanley Modular provided advice during the design stage to ensure the project could be successfully constructed using modular methods.
The Albany Senior High School interim buildings were built to serve the needs of the
school until their new permanent building was complete. Part of the brief was for them
to be re-locatable, and, in early 2010, Stanleys were asked to relocate them from Albany
to MIT’s campus in Otara, South Auckland.
Designing and building this within five months to be ready for the Rugby World Cup was
a big ask, but when Cheshire Architects added the re-locatable requirement to the order,
Stanley Construction was a natural choice for this challenge.
When an earthquake risk assessment deemed one of Golden Bay High School’s main classroom blocks condemned, a replacement solution was required - urgently. Three classrooms had to be installed and ready for the start of the new term.
Based on an extremely tight site, this project completed by Stanley Construction is
another example of how utilising pre-fabricated components has multiple benefits, this
time in an occupied residence where minimal disruption was essential in the process.
This project of 55 two-bedroom houses and 103 two-bedroom extensions demonstrate Stanley Construction’s capabilities for pre-fabricated construction. A factory manufacturing process is the perfect model to achieve a high level of repetition and as we are producing more “offsite” by definition, we are reducing time “on site”.
