Bealey Lodge

Bealey Lodge

The task

When the old backpackers lodge on this site needed to be demolished due to earthquake damage, the owners wanted to replace the original three story building with a property that was efficient and cost effective to build.

Our thinking

The construction method used to build the new two story building brings together pre-fabricated cross laminated timber panels that fit together like a 3D jigsaw puzzle. Base building construction commenced in January 2015 and the building handed to the operator at the beginning of November 2015, demonstrating the efficiency achieved using this construction methodology.

The result

The new accommodation lodge can house up to 200 people in various room styles and become operational on 3rd November 2015.
