Boyle River, North Canterbury Outdoor Education Trust
"This 3 bedroom Specific Design Mamaku 87m² has been one our most successful relocations we have had the pleasure to build. Our client approached us looking for a home that would be suitable for their staff of the Boyle River Outdoor Education Centre. With the help of our architects and the clients input, we were pleased to present the client with a clever layout which gave just the right amount of living space – 2 separate living areas, 3 big spacious rooms, 2 with walk in ensuites, generous size kitchen and separate laundry. Special attention was paid to the overall design appearance to ensure the building blended in with the Alpine environment. Exterior treated ply and battens were chosen to achieve this requirement. The construction of the building incorporated proven building systems, maxim ceilings and engineering floor joists together with timber frame / gibboard interior linings met or exceeded the New Zealand building requirements.
The Boyle River Outdoor Education Centre is a leading provider of outdoor education to secondary schools and community groups in New Zealand. Their programmes engage, challenge and inspire the young and not so young in an alpine environment. They provide tailor made courses to suit their client’s needs so they can experience personal development, teamwork, leadership training, outdoor activities, outdoor pursuits training, adventures and retreats all in the wonderful setting of the Lewis Pass.
When given the opportunity to build living quarters for the Centre Manager and Assistant Manager, Laings jumped at the chance. The North Canterbury Alpine Trust is a non profit organisation so meeting their needs in relation the cost was vital for them. They were lucky enough to have the support of the Canterbury Rotary Clubs and the local Canterbury community with donations of $100,000.00 towards the project, as they don’t receive any funding from The Ministry of Education.
The build was very successful, we enjoyed dealing with the client and we relocated the building to them in March of this year. We caught up with our client a short time after to find out how they found the process with Laings, these are their comments. ‘Very convenient, overall time saver and money saver (in relation to the cost saving of having to accommodate builders on site), they listened very well, communication during the planning process was fantastic, they were decisive, took all the stress away from the building process right though to the relocation of the house to setting it on the piles. We found the ability to view the process of the house in valuable; they always made time for us, even if we popped in unexpectedly. Laings were a great company to deal with and we would happily build again with them and recommend them to anyone we knew who was looking at doing something similar.’"
