“In a project funded by community grants, effective cost control was vital”
Of all the services we provided on the new Netball Waitakere facility, probably the most vital was strong and effective cost control from concept to completion of this $6m project, because virtually all the funding came from civic and community sources. The capped value of funding was not compromised – yet neither was the client’s vision in terms of design and space requirements.
The two-level 1375 sq m Te Pai Centre in Henderson, West Auckland, replaced an old facility that no longer met the needs of Netball Waitakere. The outstanding new centre comprises offices, meeting rooms, changing facilities, function rooms and a commercial kitchen.
On an adjacent site, and undertaken as a separate stage of construction, are three indoor netball courts covered in a high-tech translucent PVC fabric structure. Each stage of construction was completed in well under a year.
