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.

A recent design for a rural site just outside of Auckland….

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.

The Hamilton building refurbishment is progressing at Plant & Food Research’s Mt. Albert Campus. Three levels of curtain wall glazing are complete!

This is a detail of one of the elevations of the Park Hyatt Hotel, which is currently under construction in Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter. Due to be complete by the end of 2018.

We are delighted to announce that we have been engaged to design a new visitor centre and education facility for the Mangemangeroa Reserve in Howick. At the edge of Auckland’s urban area with views out to the eastern bays, the site has long scenic walks through farmland, native bush and estuary environments.
