An update to their existing facilities, this new Christchurch build, led by our property team, consists of a 3,000m² warehouse for stock, high-detailed office and showroom.
Häfele provides a wide range of hardware and fitting systems for every room of the house or office. Partnering with our property team and facing significant business growth, the former facility’s smaller space soon became a challenge to their efficiency. Our solution was the Design Build of a much larger warehouse, complete with an office and modern showroom, and detailed with high-quality finishing.
A lot of Häfele product is sold through major retailers around New Zealand, which means the new premises have to be both large enough to house the stock and be highly functional at the same time. With a significant number of deliveries also coming in and out, container offloading on site had to be facilitated. Furthermore, there was a strict completion deadline to allow Häfele to move in and begin operations at the beginning of 2019.
Located on a site in Hornby, Christchurch, the new facility consists of 400m2 of office space and a 3,000m2 warehouse — four times bigger than before. The new warehouse building utilises the in-house manufacturing capabilities of our precast concrete division, whilst architectural design flair went into the showroom and office, fitted out with many of Häfele’s products.
As the final handover was completed before Christmas, Häfele could move in earlier than anticipated, officially opening its doors as the new year began.
