ON SITE AT SUNSET WEST
Take a look at what's been happening on site this week!!
Scaffolding is continuing to come down around the building, and should all be gone by the end of this month. It will be great to be able to appreciate the building properly once its gone! Meanwhile, its all go on the interior...
We rounded out the end of last year on a high point, starting to unveil the building in all its glory as the scaffold began to come down. The New year has now started with a bang as we push hard to get these Apartments completed!
9 OCT 2020
As more and more of the materials for the interiors of the Apartments begin to arrive on site, our hoist is operating non-stop throughout each day to ensure that everything is where it needs to be.

We've had some classic Wellington weather this week which has slowed the window and roof install somewhat. But given that we are semi-watertight we've been able to progress the interior fitout. Services and linings continue at a great pace!
18 SEP 2020
The main goal at the moment is to close the building out, so the focus has been on window and glass install, cladding install, framing and final openings and getting the rood semi-watertight!
28 AUG 2020
There's a lot of progress happening behind the cover of the scaffold at the moment - we're looking forward to the day the scaffold comes down and we can fully appreciate the building and its contribution to the cityscape!
21 AUG 2020
The Wellington weather has been kind to us this week! With roofing going on we are making the most of days like these to ensure the roof can be installed as soon as possible. It is also nearing the time for our beloved crane to come down - the site will feel quite different without it!
14 AUG 2020
This week we installed the largest panels on the building (12 tonne!) - this exceeded our tower crane's capacity for lifting, so we got a 350 tonne mobile crane on site to do the job.
24 JULY 2020
A picturesque sunrise through what will soon be an enclosed 6th Floor! Final preparations were on the way for the final slab pour, with plenty going on elsewhere in the building to keep everyone occupied!
17 JULY 2020
With structural steel up to level 6 we are one step away from the roof! Scaffolding continued to shoot up this week closely followed by framing, services, and precast panel install.
3 JULY 2020
The end of this week saw our level 5 slab poured, precast panels installed on the facade, further timber framing and gibbing up the building, and more services being installed in the risers. Once our West side scaffolding goes up, the West side of the building can get framed out and gibbed up too!
19 JUNE 2020
With the West side balcony steel going in and steel up to level 5, the building is starting to take shape! Winter is definitely here and the weather has worsened, but hasn't slowed us down too much yet.
1 MAY 2020
We're back on site, or at least some of us are, and working hard to proceed under the new COVID-19 Alert Level 3 working conditions. Big news of the week, our Tower Crane is up and operational!
23 MARCH - 28 APRIL 2020
Lockdown. COVID-19 has meant an end to work on site at Sunset until Alert Level 4 is lifted. The Aoraki team have gone remote and are busy planning and preparing in our bubbles till we can get back to it!
