530 Great North Road | Refurbishment and Recladding

Category: Projects and Construction

One of the biggest projects undertaken in 2018 was under Spencer Henshaw for Housing New Zealand. The project involved refurbishing and recladding 29 housing units in Grey Lynn.

The project was led by Pieter Botha, who is now the Operations Manager for Gunac | Waterproofing Specialists. Pieter completed this job in stages, refurbishing each set of units at a time.

Tasks included removing the existing cladding, windows and roofs, installing new framing to NZS code 3604, replacing the existing cladding with James Hardie Linea Weatherboard and Exotec, new flashings, aluminium windows and doors, upgrading the building’s fire protection, replacing the roof flashing and fixings, upgrading existing drainage, painting all external surfaces and internal spaces where works were carried out, waterproofing the concrete base and finally replacing concrete paving.

The project took 1 year and 3 months to complete. The project was quite involved however Access | Partners in Property are thrilled with the outcome - refurbishing community housing to make them safer and warmer New Zealand families.
