136 Fanshawe Street
Auckland, New Zealand
Leading New Zealand property developer Mansons TCLM is nearing completion of the construction of a contemporary, 6 Green Star-rated commercial office tower development at 136-142 Fanshawe Street in Auckland’s CBD. Providing over 19,000 square metres of modern office space and with a seismic rating of 100 %NBS, the building features a large internal atrium, interconnecting air bridges and the provision for ground floor retail spaces to support the office tenancies.
Mansons TCLM engaged Calibre as the lead designer for this development, completing the modelling of the building and taking on responsibility for all construction monitoring tasks. Our role involved the provision of structural and civil design services as well as an initial design phased and then implemented throughout the construction phase alongside the Project Managers and on-site construction team.
The brief for this 6 Star sustainable building has been fully implemented. Calibre’s design and ability to deliver within the required construction deadlines have resulted in a high occupancy rate for the development, with most levels of the new building now full. This is particularly impressive given the effects of several highly disruptive COVID-19 related lockdowns in Auckland during the project’s development. The Fanshawe Street Office Towers are scheduled to open in late 2021.
“The Calibre team has been exceptional. In a truly testing year and on a complex build, they found and delivered structural design solutions and then worked with our construction teams on site to ensure that these were implemented correctly and efficiently. Calibre has worked proactively and collaboratively to help ensure the successful delivery of this commercial construction project.”
