What We Do

McTiegues Road Stage 5

Brosnan Construction was engaged on this warehouse development for Citadel. The scope included building and lifting of concrete wall panels into place creating the external shell of the warehouse building, along with the construction of two offices – one external and the other internal.

Our winning edge was a result of detailed methodology development with our supply chain and tendering the project works not only within Canterbury but also the lower South Island - where subcontractor pricing is currently more competitive. Using our supply chain to the best advantage was key; this involved early programme confirmation and communication on award of the project to ensure trades were tightly scheduled.

The enabling period for this project was only one week, so securing material deliveries, concrete supply and placing bookings – for instance crane dates – was critical. By leveraging our great relationships with our local and national supply chain we were able to meet the extremely tight enable period even though we were working within an extremely tight labour market and the early onset of the Christmas rush.

The project was successfully completed to achieve the desired outcome for our Client.

North Shore Hospital Building 5

North Shore Hospital Building 5 was constructed in the 1960’s for the purpose of being occupied as staff accommodation. The structure of the building consists of an inadequately filled concrete masonry reinforced exterior cladding with a hollow clay block used as formwork for the 70mm concrete floors. The 2nd story resides of a mix of internal concrete brace walls and structural timber holding the light weight roof. The new purpose of the building is to create a hospital outpatients ward on level zero and offices and teaching facilities on level one and two.
