PLATFORM 8 RESTAURANT & BAR: BREATHING A NEW LEASE OF LIFE INTO A LANDMARK BUILDING
Platform 8 is located within the vaulted lobby of the historic Grand Central railway station in Downtown Auckland. We were engaged to engineer the fit out of this amazing heritage space.
Benefits of having us on the team:
We had to be innovative as we couldn’t make permanent connections to the heritage stone walls and mosaic floors, which meant bar, pergola and seating elements had to be self-stabilising.
We specified materials that were readily available to enable quick construction while being sympathetic to the character of the building.
We gave advice that helped the building owners to streamline the consent process.
The project was completed in eight weeks, with the structural elements taking a total of just two weeks.
