Pete will be speaking at the Auckland Build Expo on the 2nd November. He will discuss
– the significance of geology and landscape
– the development of Encampments to create unique residential projects
– using natural light to animate spaces by incorporating New Zealand’s highly active skyscapes.

Pete will discuss these ideas whilst showing many projects ranging from houses to museums, apartments to the new Park Hyatt Hotel currently under construction on Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour. You can register for tickets here

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!

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.

The new facility for the Hearing House in Auckland’s Greenlane is making great progress, with steel framing going up on levels one and two, concrete block walls and in-situ concrete all underway.
