The reconstruction of a $1.8m St John Ambulance Centre in Gisborne began in March 2011 and was completed in late November 2011.

The Centre, constructed by experienced local builders D Stevens Ltd, presents a modernised facade that conceals a complete internal transformation. For the team at D Stevens the new St John's provided a challenging yet enjoyable project and the opportunity to construct a building that will be a vital part of the community for decades to come. The rebuild saw the partial demolition of the old ambulance centre to allow space for the new 135m2 training hall.

The structure of the existing 2-storey building was retained to provide the framework for offices, support facilities and to extend the garage to five bays. Careful planning reconfigured the function of St John's to meet a growing demand in the charitable ambulance service and training by providing a purpose built state-of-the-art 1092 m2 facility.

The construction of the new outpatient's facility for the Canterbury District Health Board started on the 9th January 2012 and was opened in early July 2012.

This building is designed and constructed so that it may be split into multitude of buildings and transported off the site and reused in any number of ways in the future.

The building is situated on the old nurses home site and the pile foundations are cast into concrete footing beams within the demolition rubble remains through to the natural ground below. From there it has a bearer, joist subfloor, timber exterior and internal wall framing to the ground and first floors.

The interior was then fitout into clinic rooms, nurse's stations, offices and procedure rooms for the Hospital.

Project Descriptive

The project involved the creation of a new integrated medical centre on a high profile site on the corner of Lake Road and Jutland Road Takapuna.

The owners had purchased a building that had most recently been a car dealership and service centre and had in previous incarnations also been a petrol station. The owners elected to renovate the existing buildings rather than demolish and build afresh to take advantage of existing use rights.

The plan provided the creation of 4 main tenancies to occupy the renovated building. These comprised a GP practice, a pharmacy, a radiology facility and physiotherapy rooms.

Each tenancy had its own specific requirements for layout and facilities adding to the challenge of converting an open space showroom and mechanical workshops into high quality professional medical rooms.
