Auckland Town Hall underwent extensive restoration work starting in 1991. The interior and exterior were extensively restored between 1994 and 1997 at a cost of $33m, bringing the Hall to current earthquake standards of compliance. This was to be completed without substantially changing the heritage character of the building.
The exterior of this building underwent additional restoration works in 2007.
Construction Cost Consultants have been engaged to provide pre and post contract Quantity Surveying Services for stage 2 of the Richmond Development. The site has a long history and was originally a series of volcanic cones which were quarried for scoria before being backfilled.

This building, built in 1990, has been deconstructed to some extent to allow for exterior and interior alterations along with the construction of a lift shaft, stairs and WC’s.
In addition to this, outdoor terraced areas will be created and seismic strengthening will be incorporated into the building.
Summit On Symonds
An existing concrete-framed building within the CBD of Auckland, constructed during the 1960’s and previously used as commercial office space. The building was purchased with the intention to completely renovate and transform the structure into a boutique six-storey building containing forty-five new apartment units.
In addition, new retail units were installed on the ground floor.
In 1992, the Post Office closed at the bottom of Queen Street. The building fell into a state of disrepair and soon became over run with pigeons. Auckland City Council purchased the building in 1995.
Following comprehensive refurbishment of the façade, including the carved stone elements, it was reopened in 2003 as the main entrance to the Britomart Transport Centre.
Sport & Recreation
This project comprised an indoor swimming facility built within a retail centre. Issues were encountered along the way with the installation of retaining walls and also the additional work required to provide a swimming pool at the height for an instructor to teach whilst standing up.
We worked closely with the client to produce what was required at each stage, and when required worked alongside the main contractor.
This became Swimgym’s flagship facility.
