The project team have been busy finalising details to submit our milestone report to Lotteries Commission which was due on 28 September, 2016. The report needed to detail how the project intended to roll forward into construction, and needed to include documentation such as a project management plan, the amended building consent with full specification of our buildings, the plan for the restoration of the wharepuni, as well as a concept for landscaping.
We are excited to say that our report was extremely well received by the Lotteries Commission and were pleased with the amount of thought that had gone into our project plan. We have now been granted the funding required to roll into the construction phase of the project.
Nga mihi nunui ki uncles Nick and Peter Tupara, our engineering and architecture team, our kitchen designer Host Services Kitchens as well as our landscape architect Sarah Wolfe who all helped to get all our deliverables completed on time.
Sarah is a young local landscape architect who is just starting out on her own after spending many years as part of the Parks and Reserves team at Council. We were are very proud to say that we are her first job as a local business, and she most certainly has not disappointed! We look forward to showing whanau some of the cool ideas that we've worked on collaboratively with Sarah.
Where to from here? We are down to the nitty gritty details now, finalising materials and finishes for the wharekai, papawhariki and the wharepaku. We've also started all the cataloguing and condition assessing for our taonga in our wharepuni. We're hoping to get our excavators on site as soon as we can, but it really is dependent on weather, so pray for super dry conditions to dry up our soggy soil for the next little while whanau!
