RDT Paciﬁc is working on the ﬁrst building of the Wynyard 100 development. The six-building mixed-use development by Infratil is bounded by Halsey, Pakenham, Gaunt and Daldy Streets. Designed by Peddle Thorp the design echoes current and past uses of the site.
The ﬁrst building, due for completion in 2020, is a seven level structure incorporating a 154-room Travelodge hotel, ground ﬂoor retail, food and beverage and a new NZ Bus ofﬁce space along with 385 car parks.
Jeremy Brown, one of the directors of RDT Paciﬁc, says his company became involved in 2015 and navigated different plans and phases to result in the successful design. “By being involved early we can ensure good processes are in place from the start.
This allows for early procurement and a successful project,” he says. Jeremy says RDT Paciﬁc encourages the client to invest time in the project up front.
“More information, documentation and design up front gives a better result in terms of accurate pricing, which in turn results in a competitive tender process,” he says.
RDT Paciﬁc’s history dates back to 1943 and the company can offer vast experience working with public and private sector clients to maximise their property assets.
Jeremy says that the company’s approach as project managers and quantity surveyors is to take care of the process so clients can focus on their own business. He says that RDT Paciﬁc aims to take a wider view of every project.
“While the traditional drivers of time, cost and quality are core to our project and cost management processes, we put just as much emphasis on function and value – drivers that determine the long-term success of our clients’ capital assets.
And because we take the time to understand their vision and objectives, we can communicate them to others and anticipate potential challenges,” explains Jeremy.
He says RDT Paciﬁc’s ﬂat management structure makes the process easy and results in quick decision making.
Company directors are involved in a hands on manner on every project. Jeremy says that RDT Paciﬁc is committed to conducting business in an ethical and sustainable way.
The company is a member of the New Zealand Green Building Council (NZGBC) with a number of GreenStar and WELL Accredited Professionals.
Jeremy says that the market is extremely boyant in Auckland and the company is presently working on projects for a variety of clients including Toll, Foodstuffs, Auckland International Airport, the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Justice, New Zealand Defence Force and Housing New Zealand along with various private developers.
RDT Paciﬁc works nationally and has ofﬁces in Auckland, the Central North Island, Wellington and Christchurch, employing a staff of around 65 people.
“We’ve had huge growth over the past two years and are expecting steady growth going forward. We predict that 2019 will be as good, if not better, than 2018.”
