Project Period


Providing all weather access to the Pak'n Save supermarket in Petone was important due to reduced customer numbers when bad weather hit the exposed site. Our work with Archaus Architects involved a massive 4,500m2 canopy structure to cover the car park and demolishing and extending the front of the supermarket to improve flow, light and amenity to this busy retail location.

Our work

Services provided by multi-disciplinary team included piling consents, design of the foundation structure to the new canopy, steel frame design for the extension and support to the architectural detailing.

Our building services team brought the new supermarket atrium and office space to life with Greenstar accredited techniques.

The result

The all-weather solution has already significantly improved store profitability. Foodstuffs is delighted with the results.
