Influenced by architecture

18.6.2021

We don’t typically install boundary fencing, but this project was special.

The 1.5ha Stanley Point site on Auckland Harbour – owned by one of New Zealand’s wealthiest families – needed to be professional and precise.

We’re in the middle of installing 600 metres of fencing across this massive, undulating site. To get the lines right, we set break points, so the line of the fence flows with the land contours and stays within the height range of 1.2–1.8 metres.

Josh Langford marked out all the posts personally and stops by the site each day to make sure everything is being installed accurately and efficiently. We double and triple check slopes and post spacings, so the powder coated aluminium panels slot right in. For panel symmetry, we use panels of the same length and then cut them on site to fit. It’s more labour-intensive, but a project like this calls for that type of precision.

A new development

4.6.2021

A new development of luxury hotel apartments and townhouses on Auckland’s NorthShore required a rare triple-stack sliding gate.

With ten gates to build and aesthetics the key, we face-welded the slats for the cleanest look.

The carpark configuration meant there wasn’t enough height for a garage door nor enough width for traditional sliding gates. We’ve designed a solution within the space restrictions to enhance the architectural style and quality.

Each 6-metre-wide garage opening required 3 x 2-metre-wide leaves, triple stacked. To keep the look clean and minimal, we’ve face-welded the aluminium slats on the front of the frame to conceal it, so all you see from the front are horizontal slats made of powder coated aluminium. They make an excellent alternative to a garage door for both aesthetics and security.  

Triple gates are rare, so nothing is off-the-shelf for this project. We’re using specially imported components, liaising closely with the electrician and access automation, and making regular site visits to ensure the job goes smoothly.
