Interior fitout of a 660m2 new build, to create a new multi-purpose facility including library, community rooms and kids’ area.
The Ground Floor facility consists of a Social & Study Zone, Café & Social Zone, Kids’ Zone, Computer / Quiet Zone, Consultants’ Room and Activity Rooms, Parents’ Lounge, Staff Areas and staff and public bathrooms. The mezzanine floor includes a slide that ends in the Ground Floor Kids’ Zone.
Fitout included internal windows and doors; ceiling, wall & floor finishes; FF&E (including ICT); mechanical, electrical and plumbing services; and mezzanine ceiling, wall and floor finishes to the kids’ area.
Focus began the fitout works to the facility while the base build contractor was still completing their works. This meant careful Health & Safety and logistics management was required while there were more contractors onsite.
As fitout contractor, Focus was required to install the window artwork, which were specially designed in collaboration with mana whenua. Additionally, signage for the facility was also installed by Focus, and a book return slot was installed into the existing glazed wall.
