The New Terminal @ Nelson Airport, Stage 1, open for business!

Nelson Airport

All the team at Nelson Pine Industries Limited are proud to be involved with this latest iconic timber building. From the outset, the Design Team worked on using local materials and creating an iconic gateway to the region.

The recipe to build an outstanding, stunning timber building. First start with a client that is thinking out of the box, open to new ideas and has a vision for the gateway to the region. Then add a creative team that can perform minor miracles in vision and structure. A construction team of national and local contractors keen to build the vision. Add in a liberal amount of early supplier involvement, local materials and manufacture, combine some cutting-edge seismic technology and mix with plenty of communication.

This is only Stage 1, 8 bays, Stage 2 will add a further 6 bays, finishing the 105m x 36m building.

Many thanks to the Team: Nelson Airport Limited, Studio Pacific Architecture (SPA), Dunning Thornton Consultants, Tectonus, Aesculus, Offsite Design, Naylor Love, Gibbons, Cooper Webley, Brightwater Engineering, Kernohan Engineering and all the other suppliers and subbies. A lot of hard work, time and effort has gone into the building from all involved.

It has been and still is a great project to be involved in. Stage 2. Is in manufacture and the full terminal will be open for business late 2019.
