About this event

Clearwater Quay Apartments – A Mass Timber Showcase

The Clearwater Quays project was commissioned to naturally showcase timber both structurally and visually became a driving factor of the design brief. The architectural challenge was to seek out the opportunity to highlight the aesthetic and structural quality of timber.

You are invited to register to attend an industry-only open day site visit and workshop to this innovative new engineered wood apartment building under construction. This is a 5-storey (10 apartment) demonstration building. Our open day will showcase the use of cross laminated timber floors and stairs, a novel moment-resisting laminated veneer lumber portal frame system and prefabricated walls. Choose from either of the two site tour dates. Limited spaces available.

Program Presentation Content:

• Overview of the Mid-Rise Wood Construction programme

• Focus on the key engineered wood components for both architectural and structural design

• Insights into embodied carbon calculations and material cost comparisons.

Event Speakers:

Marty Verry Red Stag Investments

Marty is Group CEO of Red Stag Timber & Investments and the driver of the government-industry partnership to showcase engineered wood in commercial and multi-residential building - the Ministry for Primary Industries Provincial Growth Project for Mid-Rise Wood Construction initiative. The programme aims to encourage the use of New Zealand grown timber, mainly in the form of engineered timber products particularly cross laminated timber (CLT) panels, in the construction of mid-rise buildings using pre-fabrication. Red Stag runs the country’s largest sawmill and CLT factory.

Marty has conceived and brought this vision to reality by working in partnership with industry professionals ‘Collectives of Excellence’ to design and build Clearwater Quays - the 5-level apartment development at Clearwater Resort, Christchurch.

Phillip Howard, Principal, Pacific Environments

For architects, the attraction of working with timber goes beyond the clear environmental benefits of net-zero carbon buildings. There is a sensory connection to timber, a tactile experience of enduring appeal. Phil is inspired by biophilic design principles and firmly believes that humans have an innate need to connect with nature. Timber in our living spaces plays a part in this connection.

The Clearwater Quays project was commissioned to naturally showcase timber both structurally and visually became a driving factor of the design brief. The architectural challenge was to seek out the opportunity to highlight the aesthetic and structural quality of timber. This was achieved via the dramatic, sculptural staircase structures projecting from the southern façade of each residential tower, the curvaceous forms creating a counterpoint to the otherwise linear road facing southern façade.

Barry Lynch, Director / Chartered Quantity Surveyor, Logic Group

Barry is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor with 20+ years’ experience in commercial, pharmaceutical and residential construction. Barry led the design stage cost estimation and budgets for this project and supervises the QS team delivering the construction stage financial controls.

Barry’s team used Building Information Modelling (BIM) combined with virtual design construction to develop a parametric digital twin BIM model for Clearwater. This quantity surveying (QS) cost model is a new innovative approach to cost estimation adding value though clash detection, design audit and methodology development. It is scalable to all project sizes and provided at no additional cost to the project. The QS team also use other technological approaches to track the project, including AI financial control software, drone and cloud point surveys.

Phil Tomkins, Site Project Manager and Licensed Building Practitioner, Construction Solutions Central

Phil is a self-employed project manager. He is regularly engaged by a wide range of project management and building construction companies for working on everything from asset management plans to maintenance.
