The Uptown Apartments Project, located in Eden Terrace in Auckland, commenced in January 2015.
The project involved the recladding of the four storey apartment complex consisting of 54 units, including five fully operational ground floor retail units.
The remediation project allowed for:
- Full deconstruction of the existing façade
- Timber replacement
- RAB and cavity installation
- Replacement of the exterior aluminium windows and doors
- Reconstruction of timber decking and balustrades
Scaffold was constructed and the entire building, from the first floor up was encapsulated with weather protecting shrink wrap inclusive of full roof encapsulation. This was done in such a way to allow ground floor retail operations to continue throughout the project.
Recladding was performed using a mixture of Nu-wall and Symonite aluminium cladding involving very tight construction tolerances. In addition, the existing roof was deconstructed and rebuilt installing also a new canopy to the retail units.
The building had to remain partially tenanted throughout construction, including throughout the ground floor retail units which remained fully operational for the duration of the work.
Throughout remediation TBS Remcon worked closely and collaboratively with the Principal and Engineer in overcoming additional and unforeseen issues in relation to passive fire compliance and the structural integrity of the building.
