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
"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."
