CHT Rest Home Redevelopments

Octa assisted the Client to review the nine existing rest homes (including 5 hospital sites) and assess feasibility for modernisation.  The strategic development programme rationalised the service provision and optimised conversion into individual or shared rooms with ensuites.

Octa has worked closely with the Client managing the implementation of this upgrade programme over a nine-year period on both brown and greenfield site, with upgrades now complete to Royal Oak, Hillcrest, St Margaret’s, Lansdowne, Waiuku, Algies Bay, St Johns, Highfield and Peacehaven.

Octa also represented CHT in other exciting new developments:

  • Halldene Red Beach, Refurbishment and Extension, Whangaparoa

  • Carnarvon in Lincoln Rd Henderson

  • Acacia Park, Omokarua, Western Bay of Plenty

  • Bayfair in Mt Maunganui

  • Bernadette and Tuakau

These recent projects were all new builds involving staged demolition to facilitate continued operation of the facility.

These projects provided an opportunity to apply Octa’s expertise across multiple sites in a comprehensive strategic development programme for one Client. Working closely with our Consultant partners, Octa developed a standardised design concept that can be introduced whatever the site conditions. This gives CHT surety to design outcomes and cost.
