Projects

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

100% timber frame, cladding and roof replacement to a 5 storey apartment block, including upgrading smoke and fire alarm systems, new atrium and balcony structural steel components and new aluminum double glazed joinery.

A weathertighness remediation project consisting of 22 apartments and 1 commercial unit. Full tenant / owner vacancy allowing for 100% removal and replacement of all cladding, aluminum joinery, balconies and roof construction.

THE BUILD

During the deconstruction stage, concerns were raised and substandard building practices identified with the existing structural steel and passive fire elements of the project. A complete upgrade was undertaken of the structural steel portal frame, before programmed works could continue. Diaphragm floor connections to the steel structure were replaced, followed by new balcony structural components and an engineer designed timber frame, allowing windows and cladding elements to commence.

 

THE OUTCOMES

Identifying the structural deficiencies early, enabled investigations to be concluded and trades to be engaged in a timely manner, mitigating unnecessary delays. Thorough document keeping, systematic correspondence and a high level of workmanship carved a mutually beneicial relationship with Auckland City Council, aiding the client with reduced Council costs.

“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”
