Advantage Plastics required a large manufacturing plant for their products – plastic goods for the agriculture, contracting, lawn, commercial, and waste industries. A separate office block was also needed for the second stage of the build.
The ground to be built on was weak and required reinforcing plus, the clients needed Tuatara to incorporate several specialised pieces of manufacturing equipment. Additionally, while building and resource consent had already been granted, the construction process was delayed due to civil action by neighbours.
Once the consent had been held up by the council the building works proceeded in two stages; first the manufacturing plant, followed by a two-storeyed office space. The final build totalled 1,150m2 and included recesses in the flooring to accommodate the specialised equipment, a monorail crane installed in the ceiling framework, and its own transformer due to the power drawn by operations.
