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.
Glenside Terraces Apartments
Kaiapoi High School
Following the successful delivery of a new early learning centre on campus in 2018, Brosnan was re-engaged to construct a new gymnasium and adjacent sports courts for Kaiapoi High School.
Working with homeowners who have suffered serious damage to their property in the Christchurch earthquakes, Brosnan Construction is contracted through Southern Response to provide repair and rebuild services. An ongoing relationship which, to date, has spanned more than 20 separate projects...
The project involved the conversion, upgrade and refurbishment of an existing c.1920 six storey building into 30 quality apartments. However, the age and condition of the existing structure meant the building required structural improvements and the client’s brief was to bring the building up to 100% of the new building code, involving new foundations, strengthening of existing walls and reinforcing remediation.
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.
