Project:Outlook Mission Bay, Auckland
Outlook Mission Bay comprises 43 upmarket apartments within three separate buildings, on a split-level basement carpark and podium. This was an ambitious project from an architectural, structural, and constructional perspective, and with tight constraints. The architectural design was particularly demanding in both form and detail. All apartments were upmarket, with high-quality finishes, needing to be delivered to an informed and demanding clientele.
The design demanded a zero-tolerance build including tiny ceiling voids with less than 20mm in places to locate plumbing stacks. Finished ceiling heights 30mm below steel beams compounded the problem. Additionally, there was a major issue closing out the consenting process for the last building. The current product literature didn’t apply to all the situations where it was being used. This issue threatened a significant delay to the project.
As Project Manager, Matthew restructured the consenting staging to allow construction to proceed while the necessary appraisals were updated, avoiding delay. He ran workshops with the wider project team to resolve design issues, and utilised BIM to enable a smooth flow of information and knowledge throughout construction, keeping the programme on track.
This resulted in the build exceeding expectations, with the developer engaging him in their next apartment development.
