Clyde Quay Wharf Commercial Supreme Award Winner 2015

Kakapo Clears skirting were used throughout this stunning project on Wellington’s waterfront. A custom size was done to meet specification and was painted on site in a gloss white to achieve a smart solid timber skirting through this amazing apartment complex.

Clyde Quay Wharf was built by LT McGuinness, which had to strengthen the 100-year old passenger wharf underneath before construction could go ahead.

Designed by Athfield Architects, and engineered by Dunning Thornton, the redevelopment beat 33 other premium projects.

Judges called it a “design, engineering and construction masterpiece”.

“The project team ventured into thoroughly uncharted territory, and by building strong partnerships with the regulatory authorities and a whole range of local and international experts, have delivered a superbly detailed landmark building that is more than deserving of this accolade.”

The judges made special note of the project’s under-wharf basement carpark – thought to be the first of its kind in Australasia –which involved 205 piles and 28 individual, 90-tonne slabs cast above the level of high tide.

They also liked the mix of old and new in the development, which included the reuse of a number of heritage items found in the original building such as mosaic artworks, a world clock and the original spire.

Awards spokesperson Greg Pritchard says the winners represented the very best in New Zealand’s commercial property sector.
