Project:12 Madden Street – Wynyard Quarter Innovation Precinct, Auckland
The Judges saw Jason’s 12 Madden Street as a very challenging project. It was noted that, as impressive as Jason’s performance was on the project, equally laudable was how big a jump up it was from the predominantly fit-out projects that had marked Jason’s career prior to him being given this opportunity.
This project had a bit of everything. A tight 20-month programme with Early Contractor Involvement (ECI), a fully engaged client, and lots of technical challenges. The judges viewed Jason as being quietly compelling, and the project being one that demanded he use his full intellect and skillsets.
There was lots of innovation demonstrated on this project, examples being: the first New Zealand use of the state of the art vapour and waterproof system, Coreflex60; high-level adoption of Building Information Modelling (BIM); development of a new Health & Safety (H & S) monitoring system named SOS that enabled the logging of the H & S issues via smart phones/tablets; and on a more practical level, the creation of one site shed for all. Several of the innovations created were new approaches that are now being adopted by Hawkins or Precinct Properties across their respective future projects.
Project challenges included: dealing with a late tenant variation that required negotiation and re-planning to get a good result; getting a sub-contractor team engaged and turning up in a hot market; and demanding ground and water-table conditions, the product solution of which came with an arduous compliance process to receive the required warranty.
The client, Precinct Properties, was delighted with Jason’s performance and have requested him to be representing Hawkins on their next Wynyard Quarter project. That the project was delivered on time, within budget, and with no one on the project incurring serious harm or Loss of Time (LOT), are all outcomes of an outstanding performance by Jason.
