Press Hall is nestled between inner city Willis and Boulcott streets in Wellington. This $28m project involved significant demolition, extensive seismic strengthening and construction works that collectively repurposed the ground floor and created the now iconic Press Hall food court and created over 4,000m² of office space in the floors above. To unlock access to 80 Willis St, the team demolished a rundown property at 80A Willis St and created the Press Hall laneway as well as a hospitality complex, which includes three ground level food kiosks and an upstairs bar. This critical move opened-up the entire complex and provides pedestrian access to the recently completed Transpower NZ’s headquarters.

Gray Consulting Engineers Ltd (Engineer), Noel Jessop Architecture (Architect/Designer)

The Duncan and Ebbett project involved the creation of two new standalone buildings on a site of over 12,000m2. The buildings had to house the vehicle brands of JaguarLandrover (JLR) and Volvo, Peugeot and Citroen (VPC). Strict global corporate identity guidelines needed to be followed for design approval of the new buildings. Due to the NZ building code, some of these guidelines were unable to be met and had to be modified accordingly. The VPC building consists of showroom and offices, and the JLR building consists of showroom, offices, and a world class workshop and service center.

The Queensgate Shop 505 project was for a very high-profile fashion retailer. The project was significant for the retailer, as it was the first store for them in the Wellington region, and only the 3rd store in NZ at the time of completion. The project was split across two levels of the existing mall and it involved converting existing car parking on the upper level into the 1500m2 shop. The most interesting part of the project was constructing a building within a building. The project involved installing a new lift and new escalator into the new store, including entirely new services as required.

Owned By

Foodstuffs (North Island) Limited

The ambitious PaknSave Clendon project needed to deliver a new PAK’nSAVE supermarket, while the adjacent New World supermarket it was replacing was still trading. The construction site was extremely constrained, and works had to be undertaken with minimal disruption to the existing store’s operations, neighbouring retailers and the public. The first stage was constructed immediately adjacent to the existing store and on completion was bannered and traded as a PAK’nSAVE. The New World was demolished and the remainder of the PAK’nSAVE was constructed to complete the project. Despite being built in two stages and being three-times the size of the 30-year-old original building, the new building is seamless, without structural or seismic joints between the two stages.

Following the Christchurch earthquakes, the Rangiora RSA building required significant work to bring it up to 100% of the New Building Standard. The RSA Club decided to carry out an extensive upgrade of the building and facilities at the same time. This included adding a Sports area which incorporates a TAB, darts and pool area. A new outdoor courtyard has been created, which incorporates outdoor seating, extensive landscaping and a memorial fountain. The rest of the interior and exterior of the existing building has been extensively modernised to tie in with the new additions to the facility. This work was carried out over 18 months, in stages, to allow the Club to remain open to it’s members.
