Rangiora Apartment Buildings
Client: Housing New Zealand Corporation
Services provided: Engineer to the Contract, Design and Build, Fixed Price Lump
Hampton Jones is currently acting as the Engineer to the Contract for 28 new-build apartments in Rangiora for Housing New Zealand.The building process has been quite complex, as Waimakariri District Council required twelve separate building consents to be lodged for this project, due to the differing set-out and foundations of each apartment block. This in turn has required a considerable amount of additional time and fees to alter and modify the drawings for the Civil Engineers and Architects. Hampton Jones provided professional due diligence during the Stage Two Review Process to ensure the client received value for money and all the contract documentation was in place.
Hampton Jones worked closely with the client to gather and review Contractors’ insurances and Health and Safety documentation. We have managed payment schedules, variations and provided contractual reasoned advice to our client throughout building development, relating to variations and extension of time.
By keeping well organised with PCG meeting minutes, payment schedules, RFI’s and evaluating to variations, we have maintained contact with all project stakeholders.
