PrefabNZ / HIVE click-raft Pavilion on site !

Together with Pamela and Angela - the trusty PrefabNZ team - we had a fun day assembling the click-raft prototype pavilion after its late arrival.... but all sorted for opening early morning on Day 1 at the A&P Show in Christchurch. I've included some assembly shots along with a team shot at the end. Also a shot of Gary Caulfield and his trusty steed at Puke Ariki where we disassembled it earlier in the year ready for its next adventure. A very big thankyou to all involved including the guys at Stanley who fabricated it (especially to Gary and Sean for making it happen), and the fantastic support of Pamela and Angela and a huge array of spontaneous helpers who just turned up curious to pitch in, including the wonderful A&P security lads - many thanks guys!

Kidsfirst Design Development

Redcliffs Kindergarten development is rolling. Many of the challenges to realise the project such as the structure and cladding, services and environmental issues are getting sorted - with various details still to solve, next step is to realise a full-size prototype mock-up at Stanley's factory to review with Sean Wood and his team. Meanwhile drawing documentation is happening flat-out - have some great new images to show thanks to Jaap ! Can't wait to see it on the ground - especially for all the wonderful people (esp little people) of Redcliffs and the fantastic team at Kidsfirst.
