    From Resource Consent to Building Consent, it's now down to the nitty gritty for our kaumatua house, the aim being to make it a buildable and plausible design. Our four teams continue to work on the four core areas, thus making our own groups: the floor team, the roof team, the wall team and the interiors.

    Building Consent means research time. Details, details and more details, measuring, calculating and contacting various product companies. The NZBC (New Zealand Building Code) now in action, and for some of us students when it comes to real world projects, referring to this code and alike for the first time!

    We've also got to brush up on our ArchiCAD skills. We are going to draw the final details in this software and have a full set of working drawings printed and sent off to the council for approval.

About this Blog

Studio 19 is a collaboration between UNITEC and Strachan Group Architects (SGA). Third year architecture students are given the opportunity to work along side SGA to design, document and build a project. The Brief from Ngāti Whātua O Ōrākei was to design of a master plan of eight houses for elderly tribe members. One of these houses is to be documented and built by the students.
