The TUMU Property team were a project management partner for BBI Wood Products during the construction of their recently completed head office, warehouse and distribution centre located in Irongate, Hastings.

The building, comprising a 4,500sqm clear span warehouse is surrounded by canopies making up a total 6,500sqm covered area and includes a 300sqm architecturally designed office.

The 45m clear span warehouse is a first for mass timber in New Zealand and is a showcase for what can be achieved with sustainable Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL) and mass timber engineering.

It was also an opportunity for BBI to showcase a range of their products. The office interior is lined with BBI’s Blondeline Birch Plywood with a negative detail. The exterior cladding and feature walls consist of Textured PlyClad board and batten, and extensive Kwila decking and Kwila slat shade screens finish the exterior with a contemporary design.

The project included the construction of a 7,000sqm concrete yard and asphalt car park and utilised low impact design such as vegetated swales and raingardens to treat and dispose of onsite stormwater.
