Commercial Architecture

Apartment Development, Worcester Street

Brand new apartment development in Worcester Street, Christchurch.
Project Snapshot
Year Completed: 2017
Location: 192 Worcester Street, Christchurch
Professional Service/s: Contract Administration



The apartment is a 5- level structure with penthouse units at the top level. White plastered finishes contrasted by black metal finishes are used to highlight the modern architectural form of the building.



Context Architects was initially involved in the concept and also the initial building consent documentation. THE DESIGNFIRE was later then engaged by our client to produce construction documentation based on the earlier design and administered the building contract to completion.


In Detail

The construction was on a fast track process due to its commercial nature of development.

THE DESIGNFIRE closely liaised with the client who was also the constructor, the project manager, site foreman and also council to monitor the construction process.

Our Technical Director Ryan Shin was the project lead for the project. He flew Christchurch fortnightly to attend the site meetings, run over construction issues, issue instructions to the team. He also reviewed the final construction form at the Practical Completion.

I had involved several property development projects and our team had the pleasure of working with THE DESIGNFIRE on most projects including an apartment building and commercial building.
THE DESIGNFIRE provided services for amendment of the existing plan, arranging consent and also provided construction drawing with monitoring. We found THE DESIGNFIRE was easy to deal with and THE DESIGNFIRE was able to resolve issues efficiently with their professional support and also in a timely manner. We understand that new building designs are a challenge due to the strict restriction after the Christchurch Earthquake but THE DESIGNFIRE coordinated well between project owner and council and also with other relevant consultants. Our team was happy with the service they received and I am happy to recommend THE DESIGNFIRE to project owner and/or construction company.
