Simpson's Beach, Whitianga
Hawes Building Solutions was engaged by Central Building Services (CBS) on behalf of Brent Ashton to take care of the remediation and repairs of this two storey home at Simpsons Beach north of Whitianga. Kent Hazelhurst from CBS was the building surveyor and has worked successfully with Hawes Building Solutions on a number of other similar projects.
Work commenced in February 2015 with an agreed construction programme of 12 weeks.
The scope of work included scaffolding and partially encapsulating the building with shrink wrap. Claddings in specified locations were stripped back. Exposed structural framing was assessed by CBS and replaced as required. All deck membranes with ply and structural components were removed. The decks were rebuilt and extended with the correct falls and mechanical connections and flashings to meet the current building code. New ply and membranes were fitted to the decks. Aluminium balustrades were both reinstated and replaced as required. The exterior claddings were replaced and matched in seamlessly with a complete repaint.
As always with this type of remediation work accurate records needed to be kept and regular site meetings were held to keep CBS and the client up to speed with progress and construction issues as they arose. The project was completed to a very high quality of finish, on budget and to the agreed construction programme.
