Ōrauwhata: Bishopdale Library and Community Centre

The official opening of ‘Ōrauwhata: Bishopdale Library and Community Centre’ was held on 22 July 2017. This was a proud moment for the whole design team and the Bishopdale Community Board, who had also put in a lot of time and energy in building the case and gaining approval for a new facility.

Cequent Projects worked closely with the client and architect (Stufkens and Chambers) to confirm a building design that met the needs of a diverse group of stakeholders. Once in construction, we charted a course to overcome a few early obstacles and deliver the building within budget, and in advance of the well publicised opening time frame.
