What We Do

17 London Street, Lyttelton

Brosnan Construction was the Main Contractor on this complex project post the Christchurch earthquakes, involving three-storey seismic strengthening and a fire system upgrade together with a three tenant fit-out.

Only once building works commenced did it become clear that extensive structural and architectural upgrades were required over this three storey property. This was a complex contract with three separate insured parties and the building owner having to agree to the level of works across the project.

The degree to which the project scope expanded during the works meant that original timings and costs had to be renegotiated and with the number of stakeholders involved, communication and transparency of planning and budget were critical to the eventual success of the project.

This project was successfully completed in full with Code of Compliance and tenants resuming trading in the shortest possible timeframes.
