14 Months

Project Value:

Contract Type:
Lump Sum Contract

This negotiated tender project for Selwyn Foundation provided additional 32 High quality 2 & 3 Bedroom retirement apartments in two, two story buildings at the existing Selwyn Retirement village in Hillsborough. During the tender process Canam team worked closely with the client and the design team on the detailed design to ensure that the budget and the value management targets are achieved.

The new development was subject to tight resource consent conditions being in an established residential and commercial area. Also there were some major challenges in construction due to geotechnical conditions on site as well as tight building height limits in the resource consent. These issues imposed many constrainers on the project, both in final design and the construction methodology.

However, Canam worked closely with the client and the consultant team to overcome these issues to deliver a high quality finished product.
