Overview

The building is a 5 level structure, including the basement car parking floor. It was previously used as 2 Degrees headquarter, and then later purchased by our client in conjunction with NMIT to fully refurbish and modernise the entire building for a tertiary education centre.

This project involved complete re-fitting of all floors, along with full exterior modernisation.

Solution

For this exciting project, THE DESIGNFIRE provided full architectural design service. This includes preparation of a concept design, developed design leading to detailed working drawings including full council liaison through building consent process. We dealt with issues attentively, and there were no critical issues raised by Council and construction team. The project progressed smoothly to successful completion.

We also proposed significant changes in the structural design to give the building a clean, stylish and contemporary look.

In Detail

This project was constructed in an extremely tight time frame, and the construction was underway at the same time as staged consenting. THE DESIGNFIRE has managed to meet this programme successfully.

Our client has been delighted with our design work provided.

About 5 years ago, in conjunction with NMIT, we purchased a site on 42 Upper Queen Street.
This building needed a lot of renovation and make-over, so we handed the design amongst a number of architectural firms, and the most attractive design came from THE DESIGNFIRE. We found them very flexible and receptive to our comments and ideas. I think it was the winning card for us as the client. Getting the permits through the council is not an easy task. They had good contacts in the council, they were well known to the council, and that really speeded up the process. I think if we’ve chosen another group of architects, this project may have taken twice as long. We have recommended THE DESIGNFIRE to many people and referred them to Louie. You know the sample of his work is here, and people can see what they can get.”
