Upper Queen Street Retail

Project: Retail

Location: Upper Queen Street, Richmond

Client: Gibbons Property

Value: $7.6m plus $1.6m Siteworks

Contract period: 11 Months

Consultants: Irving Smith Jack Architects

5,000m2 of a bulk retail store started in January 2013 and handed to Kmart for fit-out Sept 2013. This project is a true design/build project for the Gibbons Group. Having appointed a robust design team we successfully navigated our way through Resource Consent, Building Consent and Tenant Design Specifications to create the first new build Kmart store in New Zealand for over 15 years.

External walls are precast with the exception of shopfront openings with the front panels being architecturally “fluted’. The main structure is steel portal frame spanning 74m with 2 no. rows of internal columns allowing us to create the largely clear open-plan retail floor. The roof structure is steel and DHS purlins with coloursteel roof cladding, designed to accommodate over six tonnes of mechanical air handling units. 

 

One of the major challenges with the project was the site, being the former site of a timber treatment yard, was deemed to be contaminated. Whilst largely theoretical in reality, this required us to put in place extremely stringent ground control measures to guard against run-off and possible airborne pollutants during the construction phase.  Sensitivity towards the surrounding environment was paramount and was managed with the involvement of TDC to ensure there were no issues.
