Otumoetai Community Dental Clinic

236 Otumoetai Road

Project Engineers Beca Carter Hollings & Ferner Ltd contracted Hawes Building Solutions for the construction of this new dental facility located at the Otumoetai Primary School in Tauranga. The building was designed by Matrixx Architects who also played an important role in the construction process.

The building was designed using traditional timber framed construction with hardies exterior cladding and colorsteel roofing.

Due to the large amount of services and subcontractors involved in the project a detailed programme was prepared and monitored throughout the project.

This included fortnightly site meetings and progress reports. Careful planning and ordering procedures were implemented to ensure there were no delays.

The Bay of Plenty District Health Board also had separate contractors who had to complete their works on set dates.

As the building was on school grounds, Hawes Building Solutions paid particular attention to health & safety issues on the site.

Perimeter fencing, site safety signage, hazard identification and other safety issues were monitored closely. Noise was kept to a minimum and any work outside the site enclosure, such as drainage, was programmed to be completed during the school holidays.

The project was completed exactly to the programme and was handed over to the client on the day required.

All variations were agreed on a monthly basis and therefore the final account was settled within days of completion.

Excellent feedback was received from all parties involved including the School, the client and the project management team.
