Project Description

5 Alten Road (B240) is a two-storey Category 2 Historic Place in the New Zealand Heritage List/Ratangi Korero administered by Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga (HNZ). It is one of the oldest masonry buildings in Auckland and a significant piece of Auckland’s and the University’s heritage

The project involves structural strengthening  to create well-tied monolithic structures that meet modern seismic requirements. Building Services will be upgraded throughout and preservation of the original fabric and architectural typology is being achieved through the retaining of all intact existing heritage fabric, removal of modern elements considered harmful to the ongoing lifecycle of the building, and reinstatement of several key architectural facade features.
