This substantial project brought together many of the skills and deep experience of Brosnan Construction in order to deliver on the client’s expectations. A full upgrade of an old building to create 30 high quality apartments involved the entire interior being stripped out and remodelled, whilst also undertaking detailed strengthening and remediation work – all while retaining the original facade. Furthermore, repairs to the existing structure were unforeseen until the strip-out was completed; this added a significant scope of works to the project.
Significant challenges associated with this project included restrictions by being surrounded on three sides by occupied buildings in Auckland’s CBD, together with being on a main arterial route with no available site space for deliveries, storage or parking.
Our success in delivering this exciting project was enabled by early contractor involvement. By having an influence over the design we were able to simplify components to be more manageable in light of the site restrictions. These subtle changes not only simplified construction but added value to the bottom line for the client through saving to P&G.
Communication with the neighbouring building managers prior to construction and continued dialogue throughout the construction phase fostered a good working relationship and community spirit.
