Design & Build

ARCO Group partnered with the ARISE Church to undertake the project management, design & construction of their new Church facility in Whangarei bringing this project within our client’s specification & project delivery budget. ARCO Group rose to the challenge to deliver this new church from a variety of architectural finishes, exposed structural steel, prefinished exterior aluminium cladding, natural timbers & prefinished plywood. Our client originally had planned & budgeted to upgrade their existing facilities, but however through our feasibility studies, we identified that it was more cost effective and efficient to construct a new standalone facility onsite, demolish the existing facility and construct a new carpark.  ARCO Group managed the project from feasibility studies, resource consent, concept drawings, developed design, right through to completion & project handover.

This project involved the following:

  • Project feasibility study covering finance, buildability, programme and return on investment
  • Architecture design, structural engineering, fire report & seismic report
  • Project management from design through to project handover
  • 1,800m2 of new building
  • 5,800m2 of new concrete carpark
  • Commercial kitchen & café area
  • 400-person Auditorium
  • Foyer & reception area
  • Toilets & associated facilities
  • Kids rooms & play areas
  • All associated services including AV & lighting
  • All associated finishing trades
