Little Doves Childcare Centre


Kristin School in Albany is expanding their early childhood education centre and Kwanto has been there from the start. The modern single level development will feature sliding doors across an entire wall that will open onto a large playground area. We're currently collaborating with Collingridge and Smith Architects (CASA) on two education projects, including Little Doves and the recently completed Chrysalis Childcare Centre in Avondale that won gold at the 2016 NZ Commercial Projects Awards.

Kwanto was engaged to provide cost estimation and tendering services. Having Kwanto involved from inception has allowed the client to have a realistic idea of project costs. This has enabled them to secure funding. When construction commences next month we'll also be there to monitor the budget and keep costs in check.

"It was very important to the School that we found a professional and reliable adviser with a solid reputation to conduct the costing analysis for our development. Their approach was proactive and added value by assisting with ideas for cost savings. Their familiarity with the building industry and associated consultancy firms was reassuring and has helped establish a collaborative style with everyone responsible for delivering the project." Nigel Wilkinson, Kristin School
