Zero Fire

The team at Zero Fire had outgrown their offices and wished to construct a purpose-built office and warehouse for their Hamilton base. They engaged Foster Construction in a design and build capacity to carry out the works. Having worked with Fosters on a number of projects, the team at Zero were confident the end result would be a quality building and that there would be few surprises throughout the construction journey.

The building was designed by Edwards White Architects and makes a strikingly simple statement through the use of modern claddings and colours. Metalcraft espan and kahu, and precast concrete were predominantly used to form the external cladding. A large concrete carparking and yard area, and landscaping works were also included in the project.

This seamlessly coordinated project was completed on time and to budget, thanks to an excellent relationship between the client and the construction team. The team at Zero Fire were delighted with the end build and commended Fosters on a quality result and on the treatment of their employees and all subcontractors involved in the project.

“There were no grey areas and no delays. Where there was a query, it was quickly resolved.”

Zero Fire recently moved into their new Hamilton premises, a purpose-built office and workshop architecturally designed with plenty of room for future expansion.

After outgrowing their start-up premises, creating a space for the team was an important step in the growth of Zero Fire, bringing the team together, enhancing collaboration and customer experience was a key objective.

Having worked with Fosters on a number of projects Director of Zero Fire Travis Pocock knew he could rely on Fosters to deliver a high quality build, on time, on budget. Travis says “as a first-time commercial build, seeing the final product come to life is more rewarding than I could have imagined, and the process was seamless. I put that down to the excellent preparation and communication between Foster’s and the architects. There were no grey areas and no delays. Where there was a query, it was quickly resolved.”

Travis concludes that from his experience as both subcontractor and client, Foster’s inclusive approach is one of the key reasons for their success.

“Everyone on a Foster’s project is treated equally and with respect, which is important to Zero Fire as it is one of our company values. Everyone knows exactly what’s expected of them and they’re valued for their contribution. That’s how Foster achieves the quality product they’re renowned for.”
