Willis Street - Main Contractor: Fletcher Construction
Due to restricted access along Willis Street, Minimixers in tandem with Aardvark Concrete Pump and Spray, were required to supply all concrete and spray mix for the earthquake strengthening of Zephyr House (The old Press Building). All work was carried out outside of regular working hours due to heavy foot traffic along Willis Street, and access was only achieved by manoeuvering our trucks into the ground floor entrance.
Approximately 100 cubic metres of 40-50 MPa Pumpmix was supplied for window infills, additional cross beams, footings and shear walls. And also 20 cubic metres of 30MPa Spraymix to strengthen a walkway wall down the side of the building.
Minimixers was the only concrete supplier in the Wellington Region who were able to complete this task.
