University of Canterbury Kirkwood Hall

Octa project managed the refurbishing of an existing rest home (St Nicholas Hospital) into a 72 bed University Hall of Residence which offers full-time students the support and community of a first-year hall in a self-catered environment.

The project's time frame was very constrained, and work included refurbishing and installing new bathrooms, installation of a new communal kitchen, converting an existing laundry into four new bedrooms, fire system upgrades and landscaping. The entire complex was also repainted inside and out, and re-carpeted. In addition to managing construction work, Octa was responsible for the procurement of all FF&E and the management of University stakeholders.
