Components: Building façade replacement due to weather-tightness issues in an operational warehouse
NZ Customs Building is a 2 level office warehouse located near the Auckland International Airport. The office façade was experiencing major water ingress issues, and following thorough investigation, it was determined the entire façade required replacement. The building remained fully operational and secure throughout the construction works.
Xigo were originally engaged to establish the causes of water ingress, and once these were realised, a design solution was managed through to construction completion. Acting as the Engineer to the Contract throughout the construction process.
The appointment of a specialist façade contractor as both the designer and contractor made the process seamless and by ensuring full transparency with all parties, the solution was successful and cost efficient.
Council input was gained early to ensure that a building consent would be forthcoming and no issues were encountered throughout the project with compliance.
