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.

Brosnan Construction were awarded the contract to construct an 800 square metres 2 storey redevelopment in the growing North Canterbury township of Woodend. The scope for Woodend School included a new two storey eight classroom block.
In addition to this, there are some minor weather-tightness repairs for the three remaining buildings.
At the completion of the project, the demolition of a two classroom cebus unit will be completed.
The $320m Christchurch Justice & Emergency Services Precinct is an anchor project, of the Christchurch rebuild led by the Ministry of Justice
The precinct is located on the block defined by Lichfield, Colombo, Tuam and Durham Streets encompasses approximately 40,000 square metres of floor space over five floors.
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.
The development of a major retirement village on the South-Western outskirts of Christchurch is a major undertaking. Brosnan Construction has initially been awarded the contract to construct the main, three-storey centre for the complex using innovative, new techniques.
