The proposal involved a childcare activity in a residential zone, earthworks, infrastructure installation, stormwater management, carparking and signage. The proposal infringed the residential noise standards.
The stadium building comprises a total floor area of 1,400m2, accommodating up to 12 playing tables. The building also includes ancillary facilities such as changing rooms, a lounge, kitchen, office and a mezzanine spectator viewing area.
Our proposal involved the consideration of a wide range of environmental issues including visual effects, noise effects, traffic effects and residential amenities. A challenge for the project was ensuring the facility integrated seamlessly with the surrounding public parkland, through landscape design and careful consideration of access.
This project involved major renovations to the existing Mt Albert Baptist Church, which included substantial additions to buildings on the site to provide for a larger auditorium capable of accommodating 300 people, along with new lounge and kitchen facilities. The consent also provided for a reconfiguration of parking areas, earthworks and tree removal.
The resource consent application was obtained on a non-notified basis. Working with architects Brewer Davidson, the proposal involved a number of matters that were subject to close scrutiny including noise from use of the expanded auditorium, a car parking shortfall, and expansion of the church on land that is residentially zoned.
The building was designed by Ignite Architects and it is located in the heart of the Northern Rodney district. The redevelopment included two new blocks that house an administration building, locker rooms, a library, music rooms and 14 teaching spaces. Touches of colour have been added to different areas of the school to create a familiar feel for students and visitors on arrival.
