The Glenside Terraces project involved the rebuild of 33, 2 and 3 storey urban townhouse units, as well as construction of ground retail spaces to the 3 storey dwellings accessible from Symonds Street.
Brosnan engaged with Auckland Zoo and Regional Facilities Auckland to construct a new off exhibit holding facility designed for small mammals. The facility has five holding areas all with access from a main services corridor with double doors, into a covered and enclosed holding pen and a cage area with shallow pond at the opposite end. Each holding pen has a bunded upstand and separate drainage to prevent any cross contamination.

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.
This project was commissioned to celebrate the centenary of WW1 and Brosnan Construction was proud to be involved in work that would be a feature of the commemoration celebrations. The project involved a single level extension to the existing Navy Museum, together with a refurbishment of the historic carpenters’ workshop excavated into the cliff at North Head,
Being awarded this work, to complete the office fit-out for a leading firm of architects, has its own inherent challenges around total quality of fit and finish. Add-in the use of high-specification materials and finishes means a true test of our attention to detail.

Involving an historic building dating back to the early 1900’s, it was one of few commercial buildings on Lichfield Street to still be repairable.
Enabling commercial tenants to resume trading in the shortest possible timeframe is a challenge in itself when repairing earthquake damaged premises, but when further damage is only discovered during the project, then it can place strain on both timelines and budget. Dealing with these issues professionally is paramount to success.
The earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 left many buildings in Christchurch damaged. Some have had to be demolished, but for The Sails Building on Ferry Road, Brosnan Construction undertook structural repairs and upgrades, through to interior fit-out.
The construction of a 4-bedroom cottage to 6-star standards was both a privilege and a challenge. No effort was spared to ensure the finished product lived up to the high standards expected of Matakauri Lodge and its sister properties of Cape Kidnappers and Kauri Cliffs...
