Buchan Breathes New Life into 51 Shortland Street

Formerly known as WHK Tower, the Auckland CBD building has undergone a NZ$ 2.7million transformation to become 51 Shortland Street, complete with refurbished interiors and exteriors.

Australasian firm The Buchan Group was appointed by AMP Capital Property in 2011 to provide design and architectural expertise to the project, which included upgrading the building’s lobby and atrium.

Covering approximately 1000m2, the revamp has smartened the office’s overall look and feel through the use of smooth, streamlined and sustainable building materials.

The Buchan Group Managing Principal Mike Jakobi said the team was responsible for managing the project’s significant milestones, ranging from the initial conceptual fit-out designs through to project construction and delivery.

“Our brief was to create a visually appealing gateway leading from Shortland Street to the building’s foyer. In order to achieve this we worked with materials that enhanced and complemented the building’s existing structure and design,” he said.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
