The site was positioned in a busy location parallel to Auckland CBD and was erected on top of an existing car park podium which remained open to public use.
The programme was staged to ensure the works were completed from the rear to the front of the complex, allowing the project to be finished methodically as we worked our way out of the site.
The project presented several logistical and design challenges such as achieving adequate fire protection and aesthetic compatibility within the urban design of the area.
The terraced housing required both residential and commercial fire boundaries, which required careful design coordination with stakeholders.
The team also successfully navigated various design changes to ensure the façade and cladding were appropriate to the detail and design of the building.
Brosnan managed the project's design and coordination together with the consultants and site team, and worked cooperatively with key stakeholders, Greenstone Group and the Glenside Terraces Body Corporate.

Te Kura Kaupapa Maori o Waitaha
This project was essentially a weather-tightness assignment involving the School’s Main Hall and supporting facilities. What might appear a straightforward project was complicated by a capped budget and the tight deadline to hand the site back to the School on schedule.
Being awarded this work, to complete the office fit-out for a leading firm of architects, has its own inherent challenges around total quality of fit and finish. Add-in the use of high-specification materials and finishes means a true test of our attention to detail.
