Established in 2010
Project: Whanganui War Memorial Centre - Gold Award
The innovative seismic upgrade to the Whanganui War Memorial Hall included the construction of a structural shear wall and foundation wall beneath the concert chamber.
Prefabricated structural K braces were trolleyed into position and bolted together in place in the main hall. These have become an architectural and aesthetic feature inside the complex.
Strengthening of the unreinforced Brise soleil was achieved by grouting in threaded rods flush before being plaster repaired and painted.
The original ply ceilings in the main hall were removed and replaced with acoustic perforated ply and acoustic panels on walls in some areas.
New rimu knuckle board was installed having been obtained by way of a local joiner crafting the necessary ‘knives’ to profile cut heart rimu timber to match the existing decades old boarding.
A sound loop was also installed beneath floor coverings for use with hearing aids.
Project: Whanganui Collegiate School HG Carver Memorial Library - Gold Award
The refurbishment of this 100-year old category 1 heritage building involved a huge amount of
planning to ensure it was well supported during the construction sequence.
The project involved a total strip out of the existing interior structure including removal of flooring i.e. floorboards and floor joists to be saved for reuse; the removal of old concrete piles, under pinning of the existing concrete foundations, piling of existing foundations to support new ground beams. It also included a major temporary structural support of the total interior of existing the structure as well as a steel brace unit to support the existing brick walls to outside wall lines.
Existing clay roof tiles were removed and the roof structure strengthened, as well as the brick interior columns by way of adding new reinforced cast in concrete column. New precast corbels were cast in situ into the top of the new reinforced concrete columns.
Timber rafters were removed, altered, and reinstated to fit neatly onto new corbels.
The heritage aspect has been maintained by way of recycling floor joists, flooring timber and brickwork.
Project: BP Connect Moorhouse Avenue - Silver Award
Located on the corner of a busy Christchurch intersection, this 8-lane canopy station required detailed traffic management for a complicated build on a complex site with multiple traffic lanes, cycle lanes and train tracks at the back of the site.
Built on a green site that was previously a car yard/showroom, the time frame for this build was challenging (12-14 weeks). Preparation of the ground included approx.. 200,000 cubes of earth being excavated which had to be disposed of 40km from the site due to its contaminated material.

Our Palmerston North branch has worked alongside W & W Construction on a number of projects over the past 10 years. These projects have predominantly been for the Department of Corrections on prison grounds and have included strict timetables and safety requirements. While the data trade typically works either direct to the principal or under separate project management, W & W have always treated us as one of their sub-contract trades with excellent co-operation and co-ordination from the start to finish. This is a strong recommendation for the project management staff and construction team at W & W Construction. They are clear in their communications. They are helpful in resolving problems. They have the capacity to build large scale projects..
