If our people are our DNA than our projects are what defines us. The end result of all the hard work, approach and application of our expertise. With fast-paced growth in the commercial sector, we’re proud of the growing list of projects with Form’s name on them.

The Brief

The client engaged Form to assist with the design & build of a large warehouse and office space in Hamilton. The facility is to be used for equipment storage and the offices will house Northpower staff from the region.


The Build

The Northpower (Hamilton) warehouse and offices are based on the model of the building in Tauriko, which Form is currently constructing for the client.

A two storey office will be constructed at the front of the site, with a large warehouse behind and adjacent fenced and secured yard and carparking areas.

The planned combined warehouse and office space comprises 3,300m2 with an additional 7,500m2 of laydown/yard and carparking. An additional 1291m2 of visitor parking is provided adjacent to the office. 

External cladding will primarily be of precast panels with Colorsteel Endura flashings. The office will feature Alucobond composite aluminium cladding with feature cantilevered eyebrows on the North/East facade.

The facade of the building is geometrically interesting with the practicality of extensive glazing to capture natural light.

The Outcomes

The project is underway and tracking well. We have been able to apply our learnings from the Tauriko site to this one as the two buildings are quite similar.

“It is an unusual situation for a client to work alongside a contractor, however, our team have managed to cohesively progress through all of the usual project challenges. By engaging Form during the pre-construction stage we have been able to minimise project issues and tap into each other’s experience. Form were most helpful throughout the design phase and have carried that through to the day-to-day activities”
