Good service and delivering on time is proving to be a winning formula for structural engineering firm Constructure as their footprint extends across the country.
The company was launched in 2008 by Christchurch engineer Cory Bedford, and less than a decade later, his team has designed over 8000 residential and commercial buildings across New Zealand.
Constructure’s rapidly expanding Auckland office was recently commissioned with a complex, architectural design by architect Paul Clarke on Great Barrier Island. Another recent Paul Clarke design attracted rave reviews after it featured on New Zealand Grand Designs.
“To be picked by Paul to work on this project is terrific recognition of our work and growing reputation in the Auckland market,” says Mr Bedford, whose work has been recognised in eight award-winning buildings.
Constructure continues to expand in the South Island, with around 20 staff in the Christchurch office, but the growth has been even faster in the North since opening an Auckland office two years ago.
The growing demand forced the team to switch to bigger premises in Ponsonby where the engineers look after various projects from Housing New Zealand multi-unit residential developments to high-end architectural work.
Constructure’s Auckland-based team has also been working on projects at the New Zealand Navy base in Devonport, Fonterra’s corporate head office, the Rangitoto College new technology block, AJ Hackett Sky Jump site on the Sky Tower and numerous other commercial developments.
Alongside the Auckland expansion, Constructure continues to grow in the Canterbury region, despite the slowdown in the residential housing boom.
“Our client base keeps growing, so I think our strong reputation has protected us from the softening of the housing market in Canterbury,” says Mr Bedford.
