Foster Construction recently completed Stage 2 at Te Rapa Gateway – adding another six industrial trade units to Hamilton’s prime industrial park. Located on either side of Arthur Porter Drive and Clem Newby Road, it is well situated for business. Each unit consists of clear span warehousing ranging from 284-534sqm and well-presented glass-fronted offices over two levels ranging from 117-136sqm, plus allocated car parks.

Stage 1 (which included the first six units) was built by Fosters in 2017. Stage 2 was completed over 9 months, ready for occupation in March 2020.

“As an investor, you want a smart design and you want it built well. Fosters delivered on both value and quality.”

Foster Construction completed Stage 2 at Te Rapa Gateway – adding another six industrial trade units to Hamilton’s prime industrial park. Developer David Chafer is well pleased with the quality of the finished buildings, noting the build process was exceptionally smooth.

“We chose to work with Fosters because they are local and well established with a strong reputation,” says David. “Plus, the build price aligned with our budget.”

The new Te Rapa Gateway industrial park is a subsidiary of Chalmers Properties. Located on either side of Arthur Porter Drive and Clem Newby Road, it is well situated for business. Each unit consists of clear span warehousing and well-presented glass-fronted offices over two levels, plus allocated car parks.

Stage 1 (which included the first six units) was built by Fosters in 2017. Stage 2 was completed over 9 months, ready for occupation in March 2020.

“Fosters were involved with the project from the beginning” continues David. “They bought good knowledge to the table around buildability and cost-effective materials, effectively making the job more affordable. They also oversaw the building consent process.

“In terms of the actual build, we gave them free licence to get the job done. We know industrial builds are Fosters speciality. They have the internal resource, experience and contacts to see this sort of detail through, meaning there was little need for us to get too involved.”

Would he build with Fosters again?

“Absolutely” David confirms. “As an investor, you want a smart design and you want it built well. Fosters delivered on both value and quality.”
