Hobson Garden Apartments - Auckland

In July 2014 we completed the recladding of Hobson Garden Apartments, a 2 tower apartment development that had ongoing weather tightness performance issues. Originally clad in monolithic ACP system, KFI worked from the top down removing the cladding and installing a RAB system and fitting solid aluminium panels in an open joint drained and ventilated rainscreen configuration. New windows and doors were also supplied and installed to the apartments.

During this project KFI worked on site whilst the building residents vacated and then reoccupied the apartments according to the program requirements which required a particular customer-centric project management style and project staff selection process. We didn’t receive any dinner invitations but did leave the site with a few new friends.

​Products Used :

  • 3mm Solid Sheet Aluminium Rain Screen

  • KFI 50mm Window Suite
