The RDT Pacific Cost Management team were engaged by N2D3 Properties Limited to provide Bank Funding Quantity Surveying services for the construction of Gaia (Earth) Preschool New Zealand, in Manurewa, Auckland, operated by Chrysalis Group Ltd.
Laura and the RDT Pacific QS team came into the project at the Detailed Design stage to provide a level of cost certainty around the proposed design. They integrated seamlessly with the project team.
During construction, we encountered some unprecedented cost challenges due to the constraints of COVID-19 and significant cost increases for timber after the forest fires in Australia. Laura and the team worked with the bank to minimise uncertainty and ensure the project outcomes were met so we were able to open our outstanding facility in mid-2022.
Throughout the Gaia project, the RDT team were accessible, providing valuable advice and problem-solving with a professional approach and in a timely manner.
Their ability to work through a challenging situation, applying commitment, knowledge and out-of-the box thinking is unparalleled and the project was ultimately completed within budget.
We look forward to opportunities for N2D3 Properties Limited and RDT Pacific to work together again in the future.
