Level two is underway at The Hearing House in Greenlane, with the exterior wall framing getting started. The roof is due to be complete in two weeks.

The curtain wall glazing is ongoing at the Plant and Food Hamilton building in Mt. Albert, with level three now underway.

The new services configuration can be seen here also, with a ‘saddle bag’ dropping down the side of the building, this will be finished with a perforated aluminum screen.

Construction on the Park Hyatt hotel is racing along, there are two cranes on site, the basement is almost complete, and the steel structure in place in one quadrant. The structural steel includes full height continuous columns which are 22m long!

In an extensive interview ‘Future by design‘ in the May issue of M2 magazine, Pete talks about the importance of architecture, how it is produced, medium density housing and urban intensification in Auckland, the exorbitant cost of building materials and the need for designers to maintain a radical viewpoint in the face of a world that favours conservatism.

Pete making a point during his presentation at the Facilities Management Summit 2017 at Villa Maria, Auckland. Amongst other things Pete stressed that architecture is generated from good ideas, and that buildings have a ‘soul’ which needs to be understood by the operators and managers, to ensure ongoing health and viability of the facility.
