Chrysalis Childcare Centre
Operated by Chrysalis Group and designed by award winning
architect Phil Smith of Collingridge and Smith Architects (CASA),
this early childcare centre is the largest of its type in New
Zealand and the crescent moon shape has captured the two protected
trees beautifully within. The unique centre has won Gold at the New
Zealand Commercial Project Awards.
As part of this new build, Kwanto was engaged to review the
contractor tenders, provide financial administration services
during the construction works and provide monthly financial reports
to the client's bank.
A significant number of variations resulted from the existing
ground conditions and unforeseen challenges from external
sources. However, Kwanto's timely reporting and control of
these additional variation costs gave cost certainty to the client
and design team.
