Project Snapshot
Year Completed: 2019
Location: 98 Rosedale Road, Rosedale
Professional Service/s: Resource Consent, Building Consent
Size:1570m2

Overview

The building has a footprint of 1,570m² with a large grocery shopping area, five internal sub-tenancy units, and a warehouse area. Our design aimed to provide a simple architectural form with modern, elegant aesthetics for a high-level shopping environment.

Solution

To achieve the look desired, we used painted concrete precast panels with a groove cut pattern along with light colour weatherboards to create a modern exterior look with elegant decoration details. The high roof with louvres and unframed clear glass highlight the position of the main entrance.

In Detail

The use of the steel portal frames helps to create ample clear space for the specific requirements of the supermarket and warehouse. The high-quality internal finishing  presents a comfortable, relaxing shopping experience for customers. Taking into consideration the abundant passenger flow forecasted, we designed a large car parking area with accessible space to comply with the daily traffic and parking requirements for the new supermarket.

The client was extremely satisfied with the design and the new supermarket has brought new life into the original business district.

Working alongside THE DESIGNFIRE was easy – it couldn’t have been better. They handled the council work, provided fast responses to minor variations and the team on site found the plans easy to read.
We did have challenges, with the change of specifications for a couple of products. Throughout the job we had to hold up, waiting for the consents for the minor changes. THE DESIGNFIRE handled all of this work, and we found it easy. THE DESIGNFIRE handled the architectural and the passive fire work which made it easy for us. We had a few challenges on-site with passive fire, but due to the fact that we’re dealing with one team, that was resolved quickly and efficiently. We definitely would recommend THE DESIGNFIRE. We look forward to working with them again in the future. They are easy to work with, and we really enjoyed working with them.
