Form delivers on commercial projects
The $11 million Parkhaven Apartments development, designed by Hamilton architects Edwards White, will showcase a new definition of what fashionable inner-city living can be.

With a firm focus on commercial projects Form Building & Developments has enjoyed another busy and productive year. The company operates in Hamilton, Tauranga and Auckland, taking on a wide variety of commercial construction projects.
Cameron Young works from the company’s Hamilton office based in Te Rapa and says the one single factor influencing Form’s success more than anything else is its culture, driven by the people the company employs and those it has evolved long-standing working relationships with, including a loyal team of subcontractors, suppliers and business partners.
In addition to culture, there are some other seemingly obvious factors which Cameron says are less common than one may expect in the industry.
“We pay on time. It’s obvious but so many others don’t. “We are transparent with our supply chain and we’re mindful that we’re only as good as the people we employ and the way we engage with our clients.
“We have very high standards when it comes to our team of regular contractors and subcontractors and with all those blocks in place our projects go well,” Cameron says.
Since early November, Cameron and his colleagues have been working on the foundations for the Parkhaven Apartments – a five-level mixed-use retail and apartments complex overlooking central city parks and a stone’s throw from the CBD at 220 Tristram Street.
When completed in December 2018 the $11 million Parkhaven Apartments development, designed by Hamilton architects Edwards White, will showcase a new definition of what fashionable inner-city living can be.
The building’s ground and first floors will provide retail and office spaces while the three floors above will be home to 21 apartments built to the highest standard.
Clad in a combination of aluminium composite panelling and a new wall cladding system, Parkhaven Apartments has been designed to set a new bench-mark and already several apartments and most of the commercial spaces have been sold or leased off the plans.
Built on a 2300sqm site at the rear of the block will be car parking for 90 vehicles.
This in itself is a factor in the project receiving so much interest from owners and tenants. In future, complexes like Parkhaven will evolve throughout Hamilton’s central precinct driven by the city’s council redefining what future activities are encouraged in Hamilton’s hub.

Form delivers on commercial projects
The Parkhaven Apartments is a five-level mixed-use retail and apartments complex overlooking Hamilton’s central city parks and a stone’s throw from the CBD.

The council’s district plan has prioritised development of mixed-use projects, such as Parkhaven Apartments, in its Downtown Precinct.
Along with Parkhaven Apartments, Form has several other projects on the go in and around the city, including a major refurbishment of bathrooms at the Novotel Hotel in Victoria Street and the upcoming completion of a five-retail shop complex at Greenhill Park in the city’s bourgeoning northwestern corridor.
While Form has been based in the Waikato only four years it has made its mark amongst other commercial construction companies competing for projects. Cameron says that integral to the company’s success and the reputation it enjoys is a no-fuss, transparent and engaging culture.
“We have strong relationships with consultants and we always try to be better than everyone else with a distinct point of difference around transparency with everything we do.
“Great results are achieved through a strong team culture and I find it really satisfying to see a project come out of the ground through to handover of the keys.”
