Project:The Crossing Retail Precinct, Christchurch
The Crossing is a retail development of striking design that features shops, hospitality outlets, offices, and a car-park building. From the outset there was a high degree of communication and coordination required. At the base works stage, this engagement was with neighbouring businesses, seeking consensus on when the noisy process of installing 700 concrete driven piles could be undertaken.
Coordination and communication continued to ratchet up when it came to the separate handover of the three buildings that made up this $90M development. This included individual coordination with approximately 40 tenants for their respective handovers. Each building included client design changes, some of them significant. The most dramatic was the need to provide a lift and escalator for the newly signed H & M tenancy. This meant cutting holes in the finished structure to accommodate. Regardless of the scale of the late changes requested, they all required Jeremy to demonstrate agility and responsiveness to manage. In all, the programme had to be rescheduled approximately 20 times to ensure that retail centre’s targeted opening date could be met.
The judges described Jeremy as an impressive people-centric young leader, who had delivered a tough, constantly changing project with energy and enthusiasm and unwavering client focus.
