Large Projects

Large projects challenge any organisation. The projects below testify to Plumbcraft’s skills, including our ability to manage projects successfully and to deliver great outcomes.

Residential

Address: Broomfield Rd, Whitford

Client: Stehr Bros Ltd

This 1500m2 architecturally designed home is positioned on a ridge with 360º views. The location was not on town water supply, but sustainable design was a key focus for the client.

Plumbcraft took a design and build approach to providing a complete plumbing and heating package. This included a solar water heating system for the entire home, hydronic under floor heating, pumps, water filtration and a domestic fire sprinkler system to protect the home and occupants.

Commercial

BLENNZ School, Homai Campus

Address:
Manurewa
Auckland

Client:
Hawkins Construction

South Auckland’s newest 5 Star Rated Green building is home to the Blind and Low Vision Education Network NZ (BLENNZ).

The new complex is located on the existing school grounds and was constructed after the removal of old, cold, and unhealthy buildings that had been erected in the 1960s.

The project called on the team at Plumbcraft to call on the diversity and wide ranging expertise of its people to deliver a result that would not be possible from a standard plumbing contractor.

The complex construction methodology and Green star rating meant Plumbcraft had to be more than your average contractor. The client was able to call on our expertise to work with the design team in the early stages to optimize Green star points throughout the plumbing and heating systems.

Tasks undertaken to achieve this included the design and installation of energy efficient underfloor heating, solar water heating systems, rain water harvesting systems, a hydraulic design that optimized the use of water saving tapware and sanitary fixtures, and a fully recyclable piping system throughout the buildings.

Central Heating

Address: Te Rapa, Hamilton

Client: Haydn & Rollett

Fonterra commissioned the project, one of the larger coldstore buildings built in the country, to be constructed at their existing Dry Store Hub.

The development consisted of a purpose-built 20,500 square metre coldstore hub and associated plant/engine rooms.

One of the main concerns for Fonterra was the longevity of the flooring and its ability to withstand the low temperatures required for dairy storage.

Plumbcraft approached the main contractors, Hayden and Rollett Construction, early in the design process and offered them a ‘Design and Build’ solution. They [who? this is not clear] worked together with FusionHVAC to install Fonterra’s first REHAU Hydronic Underfloor Heating System.

Outcome

What made this project stand apart from your run-of-the-mill project was the ability of Plumbcraft, together with REHAU, to provide substantial value by supplying a very detailed design while offering considerable backing and support at each point in the construction chain.

For this project, Plumbcraft installed 28,000 meters of 20mm UFH Pink pipe and 240 meters 63mm DUO Rauthermex in-ground heating mains.

Project Takitini

Address:
Ohakea Air Force Base Manawatu
Client:
Ebert Construction

This project comprised the construction of new hangars and associated amenities to accommodate the new NH90 and A109 helicopters for the Royal New Zealand Air Force.

The project has won Ebert the Minister of Defence Award of Excellence to Industry.

Redesign underfloor heating system and the introduction of Rehau’s Rautherm S sub-surface heating pipe system into the New Zealand market. [you need to rewrite this: who redesigned the underfloor heating system> who introduced REHAU’s heating pipe system?] This enabled Plumbcraft to be innovative in satisfying the client’s requirements, installing 28,000 metes of 25mm Rautherm S heating pipe, 400 metres of 063mm DUO Rauthermex pipe in-ground heating mains, and 50mm industrial manifolds. The company demonstrated its ability to be creative and strategic thinkers, and to operate a large-scale installation in a remote location.

TESTIMONIALS

We had floods in our town and we lost our running water. The Plumbcraft team got us back up and running in no time!

I have used Plumbcraft on numerous plumbing and drainage projects since in arriving in New Zealand 10 years ago . Over this period I have found the service and quality of the workmanship to be of the highest standard. I have recently had them install a central heating system to our home renovation in Taupo . The warmth from the radiators has transformed our home and the running cost of the diesel boiler has been a pleasant surprise.
