What We Do

Matakauri Lodge Owners Cottage

Matakauri Lodge is an alpine lakeside retreat nestled in one of the world's most serenely beautiful landscapes. Spectacularly situated on Lake Wakatipu and only seven minutes from Queenstown, this project involved constructing a complicated and highly specified 465m2 luxury lodge, on an extremely tight site.

The project required an accelerated construction programme of 7.5 months over winter so it could be open in time for the peak summer season.

The challenges involved managing the tight time constraints, building throughout the winter months and working around an operational 6-star lodge. All the while ensuring the highest quality of finish and that the completion date was achieved.

We developed a strategy to reduce the project programme risk relating to snowfall and adverse weather by creating a shrink-wrapped temporary structure over the entire project.

The project was completed on time and under budget while exceeding the Clients extremely high quality expectations.
