What we did:

Christchurch Civic Building

Christchurch Civic Building, a public/private joint venture between Christchurch City Council and Ngai Tahu Property, called for major redevelopment of the 1970s purpose-built NZ Post Building. It now houses 1250 Council staff and is the first completed 6-star Green-Star rated building in New Zealand.

NZI Centre

The NZI Centre was an extremely challenging project that involved working closely and co-ordinating with the main contractors for the base build, Scarbro Construction. Hawkins Interiors delivered a programme of works specifically tailored to suit that of the base build, in particular where scaffolding and access to floors were critical factors in planning.

Air New Zealand headquarters

Air New Zealand's six-storey, 15,600sqm head office building on the corner of Beaumont and Fanshawe Streets is another example of an integrated Hawkins project with both the base building and total interior fit-out delivered by Hawkins.

Tetra Pak Building

Charter House


The $43m Charter House building project for Cooper & Company was the first stage of moving Westpac Bank's headquarters into the Britomart precinct.

Ruakuri Cave

Hawkins was awarded the contract to build this highly specialised project, designed for the tourism market. Ruakuri Cave has an extensive history dating back to the 1800s, and its name reflects the legendary occupation by a pack of wild dogs .

Christchurch Women's Hospital


Club Tower

Club Tower is the first 5-Star-rated building in the Garden City using the New Zealand Green Building Council Green Star rating system and the first "A-grade" building constructed in the city for almost 20 years.
