Westfield Newmarket Facade

Wesfield Newmarket

Building Auckland’s most spectacluar shopping centre was a huge job and the Gulf team was heavily involved for more than a year.

Gulf’s contribution included sealant application on the many Tilt Slabs around the site – visible on all four sides of the development, spanning two city blocks.

The Hub – Unitec

2018 Auckland Architecture Awards Winner, Unitec The Hub – Te Puna represents a brave move by the Unitec institute of technology to support the development of a community hub and library. Polished and assured, the building is an excellent conversion of what was once a windswept courtyard into an embracing gathering space. Delivery of a comfortable environment for occupants has been a motivating factor for the architects. The clearly defined roof structure caps an ethereal, light-filled and naturally ventilated space.

Gulf’s contribution included sealant application, waterproofing and passive fire. Specialised waterproofing included an 11m x 4m water feature/living wall.
