Grant Thornton House

Project Summary

Client: Willis Bond

Project Type: Retail/Office

Project Timeframe: 2011 - 2013

Architects: Athfield Architects

Project Description

The 15-floor office tower has been fully upgraded to create 9900 square metres of office space and to make best use of 1900 square metres of retail space on a prime retail spot between Lambton Quay and Featherston Street.

Willis Bond purchased the building, formerly the ANZ Bank’s New Zealand headquarters, in 2010. The interiors were ripped out floor by floor, lifts upgraded and structures strengthened. In the busy downtown area, noise, dust and health and safety, including heavy machinery access to the site, had to be carefully managed.
