Tuatara Structures was engaged through Colliers Queenstown to develop concept plans for Plumbing World’s new Frankton retail showroom. The design had to both align with Plumbing World’s brand guidelines, but at the same time fit within the QLDC’s strict district planning rules.

Challenge
To work with Property Developers that were based in Brisbane, Australia to design and construct a retail showroom, warehouse, and offices for the new Queenstown Plumbing World. A notable challenge for this project was the attention to detail required to achieve site ratio efficiency. Due to the nature of the site location, building use, and size of the site, the design had to be well-thought out and clever to incorporate all of the client’s requirements, whilst also meeting local District Council specifications.

Solution
The final 900m2 design maximized site coverage; managing to incorporate the mixed-use building, a commercial loading zone with canopy cover, and a functional retail car park. The retail showroom features exterior stonework columns and this turn-key project included some minimalist stone landscaping.

Completion Time
