Construction of a two-level architectural office building for Christchurch International Airport Ltd specifically designed for the tenant ANZCO Foods.

Hanham & Philp were awarded this project following a detailed tender process. The building was the first of three high-end office buildings within the newly created Agri-export Precinct at the main entry point to Christchurch Airport.

A refreshing approach to the project saw both the base build works and internal office fitouts being priced and completed concurrently as a single integrated contract. This provided a considerably shorter than normal build time as, rather than waiting until the base build works were 100% complete, fitout works were able to commence as soon as practical. Also, many aspects of the design and building works were able to be dealt with once, rather than having a double up as frequently happens when a fitout follows on from base build works.

A key challenge on this project was co-ordinating the large site with two other contracts for the Robin Mann Place realignment and Office Building 2 also under construction. Our Site Manager worked with the contractors and consultant teams across all projects to co-ordinate site logistics and integration of common services. The project was completed on time, to allow ANZCO Foods to relocate as per the original agreed programme date.
