A high quality look and early close-in

“The James Hardie team has also been supportive and quick to offer solutions for us when required.”

Perched atop Ponsonby Rise, this 12-storey freehold apartment offers outstanding design, superior location and stunning views. Hopetoun Residences consists of 87 units of apartments of varying sizes and layouts (1, 2 and 3 bedrooms of between 635 sq ft and 1,500 sq ft) complete with spacious, flowing floor plans – some with up to 700 sq ft balconies.

The apartments were built by Summit Construction and designed by Paul Brown Architects for Tawera Group, one of New Zealand’s leading boutique apartment developers. Construction of the luxury project commenced in March 2014 and was completed in June 2015.

In keeping with their target market, the client was seeking a high quality, clean finish for the apartments. The building materials also needed to be cost-effective.

Early close-in

The building design uses ExoTec Facade Panel to provide a durable, express jointed panel look. The panels are fixed to steel Top Hat sections with RAB Board used as a rigid air barrier behind the wall cladding.

Exotec Facade Panel with RAB Board provided the client with a cost effective solution and enabled design and construction versatility. “By using Exotec with RAB Board,
we were able to close in the building early. This enabled the fit out works to be completed simultaneously with the final layer of Exotec on the exterior of the building,” explains John Carter, Summit Construction Project Manager.

Carter worked closely with the designer and client to select the products. “We adopted an open book approach to procurement of materials, which has led to the best design and construction solution for the project,” says Carter.
