This project involves a major store refurbishment and expansion of the existing supermarket retail areas for Wairau PAK’nSAVE. 


This one of the busiest supermarkets in the country. This site presents its own existing challenges with contaminated ground, poor ground conditions and undertaking construction within a fully operational and live environment.


The project was split into two separable portions. The project includes:

  • SP1: refurbishments of mezzanine staff facilities, construction of a large precast panel and structural steel Bulkstore storage facility which is attached to the existing building, as well as a new customer carpark area.

  • SP2: expansion and refurbishment of the existing supermarket retail area, staff offices, along with the expansion and realignment of the existing customer carpark.

  • Carrying out the works in a live supermarket, maintaining excellent lines of communication to enable the store to keep operating seamlessly without disruption, while successfully delivering the construction works.

  • Close management and coordination of the consultant and construction teams enabled a successful delivery of the first portion of works. The second portion of works is currently in progress.
