The Lyall Bay Surf Club signed a contract with Homestead for the construction of their new purpose built club rooms at Lyall Bay, Wellington. Homestead has been working with Archaus Architects and Beca Engineering in finalising the final design. Members of the club mentioned that they wished they had known about Homestead Construction years ago, during the initial planning of the surf club. Homestead’s method of concrete construction is ideal for this build due to the building being right on the beach.
In November 2016 the old club 1950’s club rooms were demolished and the Homestead team began site works & foundations. 12m long piles were erected! Early this year precast panel manufacturing has begun. These panels have a decorative pattern to give the effect of tiles along with exposed aggregate feature. A few from the Lyall Bay Surf Club and Archaus visited Homestead’s precast factory to view the panels. They were impressed with the high-quality finish to the panels. The largest panel was 16 tonne!
