Meade Clinical Centre, Waikato Hospital

Waikato District Health Board’s new Meade Clinical Centre is the most significant part of the redevelopment at Waikato Hospital and the biggest hospital project ever seen in Waikato and Bay of Plenty.

The works consisted of the demolition of existing buildings, construction of underground service tunnels, construction of a new four-level clinical centre building with a gross floor area of approximately 31,600m2 and connections into existing hospital buildings.  

ACG Tauranga gymnasium

Hawkins was initially engaged to provide ECI services; assisting with design development, providing value engineering options and buildability solutions. We were later awarded the contract to fulfill these requirements.

The three-level facility consists of a full international sized basketball court which can accommodate other sports including badminton, volleyball, netball and indoor soccer.  Two grandstands, one either side of the court, provide excellent viewing areas for up to 500 spectators and four changing rooms below contain full toilet and showering facilities.

Good Union Bar, Cambridge

The careful restoration has faithfully preserved the building’s heritage elements. A key focus for the team was to retain the original roof beams and rafters along with the doors, windows and building exterior. This included refurbishing the main glass window to retain the original glass and frame. The ethos of the build was to recycle and reuse wherever possible and we employed building techniques that achieved the design outcome and met modern building standards. Minor alterations have allowed a sympathetic and respectful renovation of the heritage elements.

The Good Home Bar, Wigram Skies

'The Good Home Bar' sits in a stunning standalone building that adds to the recently completed public square at the heart of 'The Landing' in Wigram Skies. The base building was designed in collaboration with the fit-out team to ensure the functionality of The Good Home Bar was maintained throughout the whole design and build process. The building cleverly complements the recently completed, surrounding retail buildings with a palette of similar materials and colours.

The precinct, totaling around 48,000m2 across multiple buildings, aims to make it easier for businesses to respond to change, both through building design and proximity to like-minded businesses.

Pegasus Health - Stage 1 & 2

Hawkins was engaged by Pegasus Health to deliver Christchurch’s new 24-hour medical centre. Replacing an older facility, the new centre serves as Christchurch’s sole 24-hour non-emergency medical centre.

Stage 1 involved alterations to the Level 1 and 2 office space for Pegasus Health staff to occupy the building above the new medical centre.

Stage 2 covered the fit-out of the new medical centre on the Ground Floor, including construction of a new entrance-way and façade.

Ara Institute's Kahukura building

The building is named after the Maori word for a chief’s cloak and the facility’s design was based on a kahukura. The facade colour and patterning represents an abstracted feathered cloak and the timber lining is also routed on the inside to echo the woven inner flax strands.

Student accommodation, Otautahi Education Development Trust

Hawkins worked closely with Warren and Mahoney during the design phase to provide a well-thought-out development, which has provided the client with more rooms than they originally thought possible. The development was constructed on land previously used as a car park after the buildings on it were demolished post-earthquake. It is reflective of the adjacent existing housing complex, Otautahi House, and across the road from Ara Institute where the students are studying.
