What We Do

Spencer on Byron

With its New Zealand-first scaffolding system, The Spencer on Byron Hotel tower is a pillar of innovation in the heart of Takapuna's CBD.

Known as the ‘donut’, the innovative solution allows the premier venue to remain open throughout remedial works—a huge win for the hotel, its guests and residents.

Attached to the perimeter of the tower, the scaffold enables work to be carried out two floors at a time. Moving up the building between levels 7-21 it affects the exterior only, allowing internal spaces to remain usable throughout construction.

Working in a complex, live environment requires a careful approach to reduce disruption, and early collaboration between Brosnan and all other parties has been key to a successful strategy.

Innovative solutions to complex projects is where we excel and seeing the ‘donut’ in action has been a proud achievement for the team. The entire project will be conducted in two stages, with traditional scaffolding used on the lower six levels of the building and construction kept separate from public spaces.  

 

Scope Overview

Spencer on Byron is a twenty one (21) floor mixed use apartment, hotel and commercial premises with 249 rooms and six penthouses. Brosnan was required to develop a methodology to show how the works would be completed in a realistic timeframe whilst minimising the impact on the hotel occupiers and other affected parties. Only 28 rooms (two typical floors) could be taken out of circulation at any one time with no noisy works to be undertaken outside the hours of 10.00am - 4.00pm Monday to Friday. 

The scope of the project comprised comprehensive remedial work to the perimeter envelope, podium, swimming and spa pools roof sheet membranes, roof sumps, overflows, stormwater plumbing, replacement of wall framing and composite cladding, replacement and refurbishment of nominated windows, curtain wall maintenance together with all protective screens / floor protection, reinstatement of interior linings, apartment ceilings and trim and painting.
