1929 Memorial Sanctuary
Kwanto was approached by Salmond Reed Architects to provide a
maintenance estimate for the Memorial Sanctuary located in the
Auckland War Memorial Museum.
A major factor for this project was the preservation of as many
original elements from the copper-lead light windows, through to
retaining as much of the original plaster as possible. Being
located on the second floor of the museum, the access to the main
roof was quite limited when conducting our site visit.
Providing our services meant The Head of Building and Building
Infrastructure of the museum was confidently able to take our
estimate to the board for funding.
The end result is that our maintenance estimate was within the
budgeted allowance for this spectacular building.
