Architect: Pinfold Architects
Contractor: Nikoia Buildings
Wairoa Chapel is based in Stanmore Bay, Auckland.
Pinfold Architects contacted Moddex early in the project, looking for a compliant balustrade system for safety from falling for pedestrians at the top of a retaining wall.
Moddex supplied a full package which included the handrails, balustrades, stair nosing’s and bollards.
Why was Moddex selected?
We were able to supply a site-specific PS1 document for the project to ensure a fully compliant handrail and balustrade system to all relevant standards.
This resulted in a quick and easy council sign-off for the client and provided the council full confidence knowing the handrail and balustrade design would be designed and manufactured to meet the NZ Building Code.
End-to-End Value Proposition
Moddex took care of design and installation of our client’s handrails and balustrades from start to finish, making the entire customer experience smooth and guaranteed compliance from the beginning to end.
The Moddex value-adding journey started with specification assistance as the initial project concept was brought together. We advised as to suitable product types to suit the project application and what was required to meet the relevant compliance standards.
Once the site was ready, Moddex conducted a detailed site measure, which formed the basis of our Design Intent Drawings, in which the plans were shown in 3D from different angles with all the dimensions clearly detailed. This design intent process provided a visual check for the client that everything was correct and streamlined the production and installation process.
Once the design intent drawing was signed off, our design team proceeded with shop drawings and a detailed installation set out.
From here the product was manufactured and sent to site, where one of our Moddex approved installers was able to install our handrails easy and efficiently.
The net result of involving Moddex early in the project and our planning disciplines, innovative design and Everything Fits™ philosophy is simple – no surprises. Just high quality, durable and compliant balustrades with the industry’s lowest lifetime cost of ownership.
