Wellington commercial builders

99 Dixon Street WELLINGTON

Strait Construction Ltd were contracted to carry out an external make over of this property including replacement of all windows and most of the exterior cladding. In addition some internal refurbishment was required to ensure that the work included in previous building permits was completed and the  building was able to receive a Code Compliance Certificate from the Wellington City Council at completion. As is usually the case with this type of work, unexpected issues were revealed and addressed during construction. After discussion with the parties involved in this contract rationalisation of the roof glazing design was introduced into the contract to ensure that a previous weak spot in the original design was permanently resolved.

161 Willis Street Refurbish and Earthquake Strengthening.

161 Willis street had been converted to apartments and 2 extra floors were added. These floors had issues in construction and weatherproofing. Strait Construction was contracted to correct these issues, reclad rewindow and complete seismic upgrade. The building was occupied up to level 4 during this work. Access was by way of external scaffold and there was no ground floor site footprint for this contract. An important objective of the project was to ensure that completion included provision of a new Code Compliance Certificate and ensure that all outstanding issues from previous consents were addressed. 

Commercial building construction

Johnsonville Medical Centre. JOHNSONVILLE

This property was originally constructed as a spec building and had ongoing window and water entry problems. The work was a complete exterior make over excluding the roof. All windows were replaced with commercial double glazed solutions on concrete nibs rather than the domestic windows on timber upstands used previously. A restricted mobility lift was installed in the building during the course of the project. The building remained fully operational during this project with restrictions on time of noisy work etc to minimise the impact on the occupants. 

Commercial building renovation in Wellington

Light House Theatre. Pauatahanui

A number of unusual challenges were overcome during the build. The first being the buildings propensity to flood and the second being the difficulty of piling in close proximity to the sea and an adjacent creek, another was removing the existing T&G flooring in a state suitable to relay as the client whished to reuse this flooring to tie the new building in with the old. This was an enjoyable project and has been well supported by the Local Community since completion.
