The Jack’s Point Clubhouse sits at the heart of the Jack’s Point resort, about 20 minutes out of Queenstown. We completed the 1,000m² building in 2008, and returned to rebuild it after a fire destroyed half the building in August 2016.
After completing emergency works to protect what remained of the Clubhouse, we worked collaboratively with the client, their consultants and their insurer to develop a design and methodology for the repairs – plus a few enhancements to the layout, fittings and services.
We continued to build on these relationships throughout the project. This open approach ensured that the undamaged part of the Clubhouse could remain open, with unobtrusive hoardings, a temporary roof and the establishment of a site yard well away from the building also helping to minimise the impact of the works.
Our site team assessed every part of the building and took great pains to reuse or recycle materials, including the cedar shakes, glazing, roof trusses, copper guttering and fittings. We soda blasted many of the fire-damaged timber and metal elements, an environmentally friendly method which allowed us to match the original, refurbished and replacement materials perfectly. Once the concrete floor was ground back and re-polished, it was impossible to tell that there had been a fire.
The entire Clubhouse, including the 100-seat restaurant, administration area and locker rooms, re-opened ahead of schedule and came in well within budget, an exceptional result for the client, the insurer and Naylor Love.
“The completion of the building speaks for itself; the workmanship is to a high standard, any issues or problems were quickly addressed in a positive manner, with Naylor Love demonstrating a solutions-driven mandate.”
