Prendos was engaged to provide a Long Term Maintenance Plan (LTMP) for the body corporate of a prominent historic building on Wellington’s waterfront.
Client: Body Corporate client
Services Provided: Long Term Maintenance Plan
The building is listed with heritage New Zealand and has been converted into apartments.
After reviewing the building and building elements, it became obvious that while the building’s façade had been well maintained, the current roof condition and configuration was problematic and its life had expired.
The body corporate had gone about a regime of reactive repairs on the roof to address leaks that had been occurring over the years.
After discussion with the body corporate, it was agreed that the LTMP would allow for not only the estimated cost of replacement of the failed roof coverings, but also for the simplification of the roof and replacement with a more durable material.
The decision to produce a LTMP was greatly welcomed by the body corporate, as it assisted with their future project planning. On top of this, the move to simplify the roof using a more durable material helped to further extend its life.
