An Exceptional Build

Posted 16 Oct 2014

351 Lincoln Road Commercial Office Complex Completed

Christchurch - "Stunning and exceptional" might be the words that best describe this recent build by Site Manager DOUG SMITH and his team in Christchurch.

Clad in a sophisticated combination of aluminium composite & semi-reflective glass, the commercial office complex features cantilevered floor space and localised sun louvres and is making a strong architectural statement along Lincoln Road.

"The project’s scope and design called on all of our technical abilities to be harnessed. The 14 metre pile foundation, insitu shear walls and extensively detailed exterior really kept us on our toes", says Doug.

Such a complex build depends on a full team effort, and Site Foreman MATT KENNEDY helped keep everyone focused. “Matt ensured the site was well organised, which is not easy when there are so many materials and processes in play at once, and the whole team contributed to produce a really smart looking building”, Doug concludes. Doug and his team are now off to apply their construction skills to another upscale commercial office complex using an earthquake resilient design, this one located at 299 Durham Street.
