What We Do

Vingoe Trust Building Reclad

Brosnan Construction was engaged to complete the earthquake repairs on this highly sensitive building while it remained fully operational. We worked very closely with the Insurers representatives, property owner, tenant, design team and our specialist subcontractors to achieve the best possible results. This included high levels of planning, communication and teamwork to ensure the project was completed to the satisfaction of all stakeholders.

The majority of the building facade was an insulated plaster system that needed to be removed to allow the structural cracking to be identified and repaired before the plastering system was reinstated. This involved fully encapsulating the building envelope to ensure the lightweight plaster system did not escape into the environment, the use of extensive personal protective equipment and permitted work fronts to minimise the impact on the building users.

Detailed Health and Safety and Environmental planning were critical to the success of this project due to the risks involved with the building operations, demolition requirements, working within the sealed roof space controlling approved product fumes, dust and heat risks. Due to the extremely sensitive equipment within the building all products had to undergo testing and approval before they could be used within the clean environment.

Weather tightness improvements to the replacement feature façade included the introduction of James Hardie’s Stira system to give the façade a modern appearance.

Tamaki Primary New Classrooms and Special Needs Satellite Unit

The ever-growing population of New Zealand means that our educational facilities are under constant review as the student roll also continues to grow. Add to that the requirement to cater for students with special needs and you have a project brief which is far from straightforward, including three additional classrooms and a special needs satellite unit, with related ancillary spaces.

Mon Desir Apartments

The ‘leaky home’ issues in New Zealand construction have caused numerous problems for both homeowners and the industry alike. This project typified that situation, with a set of anxious, largely elderly, owners and an initial contractor that went into liquidation during phase one of the project. It was against this backdrop that Brosnan Construction were engaged to complete the contract.
