164 Hobson Street, Auckland
This unique heritage building apartment and retail development on Hobson Street incorporates 74 apartments on 14 levels, with retail spaces at ground level.
Waco was contracted to give the client exterior access to the structure. Two faces of the development were positioned above an existing building. As access from this building’s rooftop was not possible, a needle base design was employed, attaching to the structure from the second level. Because of the height restraint, this process was repeated three times, breaking the scaffold up into three lists of needles.
Development and construction was by KNC Global Management and KNC Construction.
Waco completed the project on time and to brief.
