NZBS and Ngai Tahu Property’s aims:

Auckland International Airport: Arrivals Baggage Handling

Auckland Airport is the largest and busiest airport in New Zealand, and the second busiest in Australasia for international passengers, with almost 15 million passengers, 8 million of who were international, in the year ended November 2013.

Over 70% of all international passengers arrive or depart from this airport, with current traffic of over 14 million passengers annually. By 2025, 40 million passengers are expected each year.

Britomart East Complex

A new proposal was developed for a mixed-use community at Britomart that would also preserve its special heritage, and in 2002 Auckland City Council put the development contract up for tender. After an international design competition and a lengthy competitive bid process, the right to the Britomart development was won by the Bluewater Consortium.

Auckland International Airport Limited: Pier B Extension

In 2014 Auckland Airport announced its 30-year vision to build the airport of the future. With 40 million passengers and 260,000 flights by 2040, Auckland Airport are investing more than $1 million every working day in aeronautical infrastructure to ensure they can accommodate the processing capacity of the terminal.

Pier B was built in 2007 by Hawkins, providing access to four new aircraft hard stands, two additional gate lounges and dual airbridge boarding of large aircraft.

Australis Nathan building

Built in 1903 and 1904, the buildings originally served as warehouses and storefronts for influential importers and merchants, Andrew Entrican and Arthur Nathan. Since then, each has undergone several changes of ownership, but both have remained largely untouched since the 1970s.

The restoration of Australis Nathan in 2016 was an ambitious construction project for Hawkins that saw two significant heritage buildings, Australis House and the Nathan building, joined internally to create new retail and commercial spaces.

Hutt International Boys School

As part of Hutt International Boys School's wider objective to provide students with an updated and modernised campus, Hawkins was contracted to develop the Arts and English Blocks in mid-2016.

The delivery of the project was staged with completion of the Arts Block before the English Block, to ensure adequate learning spaces were available for the students.

Cook Street Social, Hamilton

Cook Street Social is a new addition to the Good George Breweries. The project was a refurbishment of the iconic heritage bar and restaurant, The Cook, which has been a local social spot for countless Hamilton East residents for many years.

FMG office

This new 680m2 two storey office building was constructed to serve as an addition to Wallace Development Company’s portfolio in central Hamilton.

Before construction commenced, an existing building on site required demolishing. As the building was both adjoing and occupied, extreme care was vital to avoid the building being compromised.

In excess of 100 x 6m long timber piles were required to support the new concrete foundations. Hawkins elected to pre-drill holes to an approximate depth of 3m to reduce the vibration disruption caused when driving the piles.

Te Manawa O Te Kura, Samuel Marsden Collegiate School

Samuel Marsden Collegiate school’s decision to seismically strengthen the Main Block at Marsden Karori came from their responsibility to provide a safe environment for their students and staff. However what it created, was the opportunity to build a light-filled modern learning environment.

New Zealand Post redevelopment

The NZ Post project was a seismic upgrade and refurbishment that needed to be completed in stages, as staff were relocated to the newly renovated floors. Extensive planning was undertaken for all works associated with the buildings critical systems, to ensure that they remained operational. Hoardings and temporary works were constructed to create isolated areas so that construction works could proceed while offices and public spaces were being used nearby.
