Unimed Office Building

Powell Fenwick completed the Civil, Electrical, Fire, Mechanical and Hydraulic engineering for the new Unimed office building at 165 Gloucester Street, Christchurch. The building consisted of ground floor retail and upper floor open office base build provisions, with an integrated fit-out designed for the top floor tenant. The building achieved a BASE (Building A Sustainable Environment) rating for sustainability which was a simple, introductory-level green building rating assessment for the Christchurch rebuild, developed by the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) in conjunction with Christchurch City Council. This included heat recovery ventilation, air quality control, energy and water metering/reporting and additional insulation/high-performance glazing.
