27-31 Rees Street

Located on the corner of three high profile streets in downtown Queenstown, Tiki Corner was developed in 1964.

Since that time the building has had many uses and, more recently, has been progressively upgraded to resist earthquakes. To ensure no disruption to existing tenants, seismic strengthening works were undertaken in a piecemeal fashion when the opportunities arouse.

Strengthening systems Hadleys specified included steel K braces, a steel portal frame and an overlay insitu concrete wall all concealed within the building and chosen to suit the location and the buildability of the works. This strengthening has brought the building up to 70% of New Building Standard to enable the unique Queenstown building to continue to serve the town for many more years ahead.
