The task

This project for Kāinga Ora – Homes and Communities required the demolition of 3 existing dwellings to create 18 new one-bedroom apartments across six 3-storey blocks. The complex is constructed from concrete tilt slabs which were pre-cast offsite and craned into position, providing faster build times and greater precision. The project features onsite parking for residents, and retained the sites existing mature trees, while adding additional planting to enhance the green space.
