Kerry McAuliffe from KerMac worked closely with Team Architects and Mark Hall from MSH Architects on the design specifications and installation for this new bathroom upgrade refurbishment. KerMac Industries had worked on the Greenlane branch about two years prior, so most of the specifications were the same.
Dominion Constructors were the chosen contractor doing the building work at Archibald & Shorter's Takapuna branch.
Kerry mentions that “The site managers on the Takapuna job were Joe Won and Mike Mana who we found great to work with.” Mike worked closely with KerMac to follow the strict design brief and program throughout this construction process, completing the job on time.
KerMac supplied ducting hatches for customers’ bathrooms using Eggar Tennessee Walnut imported laminate on a MUF backing to all hatch covers and KerMac in-house Noce Versailles 13mm compact laminate for staff bathroom toilet and shower cubicles on level one. The Noce Versailles Compact Laminate was an exact match for the Eggar Tennessee Walnut that was used on the hatches.
Kerry from KerMac suggested using 13mm compact laminate board in staff bathroom areas due to its high wearability factor and it’s resistance to water and humidity in the shower area used by the employees.
The K-Moda cubicles were installed with KerMac’s strong but slimline stainless steel aus leg design.
The ducting hatches in client areas are designed with a black negative detail producing a modern smart panel detail effect.
Kerry observes that “KerMac has enjoyed working with Dominion Constructors to achieve a great outcome and standout finish on this job and look forward to collaborating with them on the next building project they do."
KerMac has expanded its in-house range of Compact Laminate to nine colours and these can be viewed on their web page.
