135 Albert St
Previously an area paved in concrete cobblestones the specification called for a timber deck on pedestals to provide access to the roof membrane for future servicing. Tileworks proposed its new WoodJack Timber Deck Panels knowing the Abodo Wood used in their manufacture, offered the required Forest Stewardship Council certification to enable the Council to achieve a high Green Star rating for the project. The Elmich pedestals also assisted in this due to their 100% recycled content.
The end result of what was a very complex installation due to the irregular shapes the deck had to be built around, has been a great success, and even before summer has really arrived, council employees have been taking breaks out there enjoying a bit of nature squeezed in amongst some of Auckland’s larger high rise’s. The outlook down onto the refurbished Federal St adds another pleasant dimension.
