Judges Apartments Revitalize Heron Point with Outstanding Design & Flair.

Project : 'Heron Apartments'

Products Used: Architectural Series

Architect: Leuschke Architects

Contractor: Dominion Constructors

Installed by: Phoenix Windows & Doors

This Parnell Landmark is the end result of a comprehensive and collaborative design process where Equinox, Leuschke Architects, Dominion Constructors and Phoenix took a partnership approach to enable all parties to have input into the specification of the highest quality joinery systems for buyers with an eye for design excellence.

This High End Residential development required specific design principles to meet a number of challenges such as the acoustic levels, wind zone, waterhead & drainage capabilities and design aesthetics. Judges Apartments in it's highly exposed position required Phoenix Windows & Doors to initiate a design review in order to design and manufacture architectural sliding and stacking door systems with superior drainage capacity to accommodate very high design wind pressures.

This required all sliding door units and windows to be rebated into the floor slab to acheive a flush interior exterior flow, to a floating paving stone decking system

The building envelope is made up of multiple cladding types (precast panels with and without stone facade, alucabond and custom made aluminium flashings) over various levels with some very technically difficult manufacture and installation detailing.  With this mind Dominion Constructors and their Site Manager Shane Guy have acheived an exceptional overall finish.

It has been a privilege to be involved in such a prestigious project located in a historical and architectural timescape such as Judges Bay, with Colonial Church built in 1850 and the iconic Parnell Salt Water Baths.

Started in May 2007 by Chris Pollock of Hotwater Design & Construction the home took 18 months to complete, with a crew of between 3 and 7 dependent on on site requirements at the time.  The excavations, foundations setup and laying of the floor slab ocurred over the worst winter in decades, and were completed in October 2007.  At Christmas the roof was completed and wall framing and openings were confirmed with the overseas based "kiwi" owner in the New Year.  Phoenix Windows & Doors undertook measure and window supply over the months March through August 2008, with practical completion acheived Christmas 2008.

Given the location of the home and technical nature of the job, Phoenix Windows & Doors were very mindful of the cost associated with incorrect configurations, sizes, manufacture and or delivery damage, therefore the use of delivery was utilized and lifted by Phoenix Windows & Doors Hiab truck on to site, in close proximity to the installed location.

A close relationship was formed with the Hotwater Design & Construction Crew with prized "Jaffa" koha of 20 McDonalds cheeseburgers exchanged at each site visit for locally caught and smoked schnapper, a great deal from all parties perspectives!  The subtrade relationship from Chris's perspective was one of the easiest he has had to deal with as the 3 Steve's were the primary Phoenix contacts for all aspects of the job from sales, measure and installation.

I am sure you will agree the architecture, placement of the home and surrounding land and seascape views are second to none!

Phoenix Windows & Doors would like to take the opportunity to thank Hotwater Design and Construction, Copeland Architects and the Homeowner for their business and the opportunity to be involved in such a fantastic project that takes into account everything New Zealand life is all about - Sun, Surf & Sand!
