Wall Projects was engaged to manage this project on Moorhouse Avenue in Christchurch.

With significant alteration to the existing 1970’s design, the building was remodelled to form two high-end car showrooms, a car servicing area, and supporting office space.

Wall Projects provided support for the main contractor throughout the construction and close-out process. This was a complex project with a very tight deadline. Rigorous scheduling, procurement management, and effective teamwork gave this project the edge we needed to succeed.

Turning this building into a viable commercial space also involved extensive dewatering, seismic foundations, seismic componentry, and passive fire protection measures. Floor levels were reduced to facilitate specialised equipment, and a concrete ramp was constructed to allow access to the first floor. Meanwhile, quality assurance and monitoring throughout the project ensured both engineering and fire protection compliance.

On the street-facing side, the impressive 8.2mx35m wrap-around aluminium and glass frontage is supported by a large structural steel frame. Salvage items such as lighting, ceiling tiles, and HVAC from the existing construction were used in the alterations in order to minimise waste. The tenant’s fit-out proceeded throughout the later stages of construction, giving them a head start to get ready for trading.
