PowerNet Limited - Invercargill

Unique in More Ways Than One

15/04/2015 - Invercargill - PowerNet’s new office building located on Racecourse Road in Invercargill is a recent project completed by our Southland construction team. It was won in an open tender process and was completed under tight deadlines to meet occupancy requirements.

Certainly the building can be considered unique in more ways than one.  In addition to its liberal use of glass, a rainwater-collecting roof design and stunning good looks, it was designed to be relatively maintenance free for the next 20 years and act as a resource for the community if required.

As Calder Stewart Contracts Manager KELVIN O’CONNELL, puts it, “the building has been future-proofed and designated a community resource in case of emergencies. With a roof that was designed to collect rainwater for provisional use and hot points pre-installed to support electric cars of the future – both PowerNet management and design firm McCulloch Architects of Invercargill were thinking outside the box when planning this project.”

As an earthquake proof ILT4 structure, the facility could, if required, become the coordination and control centre in Southland for civil defence emergencies. To this end the building can was designed to be self-sufficient for a number of days in such conditions.

The safety record for this build was incident free. “This is really impressive when you take into account there were about 50 contractors and sub-contractors operating at the site to meet the project’s deadline,” says Kelvin. Working alongside Kelvin was Site Foreman TONY LEE and his entire team, who were really instrumental in getting the project across the line.
