YHA Lake Tekapo

Powell Fenwick provided the Mechanical, Hydraulic, Electrical, Fire and Acoustic engineering services for the YHA Lake Tekapo which opened in early 2019.

The Youth Hostel Association of New Zealand has developed a new multi-million hostel in the town to replace its existing facility. The hostel includes solar power and solar heated water and, under the carboNZero programme, will operate under efficient and credible carbon footprint calculations, reporting and reduction. The hostel also incorporates a restaurant and bar, a first for YHA in New Zealand.
