OUR FEATURED PROJECTS
Our team’s unique skillset and wealth of experience are showcased through each of our quality builds.
THE PACIFIC LAKES VILLAGE
RETIREMENT / $75m / Tauranga
This brand-new retirement village is a significant build happening within Papamoa, comprising of accessible villas, bowling green, and a spectacular communal building called The Lakehouse.
This huge project will deliver 220 Villas, 30 Townhouses, and several large commercial buildings which we expect to complete by 2025. With many sub-projects and lots of moving parts, our team start on nine new villas each month with anywhere up to 65-builds going at one time. Construction commenced in 2019, and by early 2022 - despite pandemic lockdowns, labour shortages, and material delays - we've completed over 120 Villas, bowling green, a man-made lake, and The Lakehouse; a stunning space for residents to relax, dine, and socialise.
Designed by one of New Zealand's leading architects, we built The Lakehouse to sit partially over a man-made lake, and used reclaimed natural wood products to enhance its earthy tones, going as far as Australia to ensure we kept sustainability a priority.
RETIREMENT / $21m / Auckland
The Ranfurly E1 building is the second stage in a luxury apartment complex in the Ranfurly Retirement Village in Mount Albert. This stage consists of a 5 storey apartment building with 34 apartments and an indoor pool and spa. The building is linked to a previous stage completed by C3 last year and shares common facilities. C3 have been involved with this project from the start in a buildability review capacity carrying through from the previous stage. E1 is trickier than the earlier stage as it is the last building to be built onsite, with no room left within the village. Access and lifting is a major challenge within the operating village. The project commenced in January 2021 and is due for completion July 2022.

1028 GREAT NORTH ROAD
NEW BUILD DEVELOPMENT
RESIDENTIAL / $5m / Auckland
This conjoined C3 Construction and D3 Development high-end residential project offers 4 three-bedroom Townhouses and 6 one-bedroom spacious apartments. The new build started in February 2021, with the first stage of the project re-purposing the existing 1920’s villa for its new home in Northland.
We used solid and durable materials for this new-build, to ensure a low-maintenance investment for home owners. We used a block and concrete structure, brick façade, and aluminium joinery, and the interior offers an open-plan modern layout with spacious living areas and large windows to allow natural light.
All Townhouses, and five of six apartments were sold pre-completion. The last apartment, a penthouse, sold soon after the build was completed in May 2022.

80 Parton Road is another conjoined C3 Construction and D3 Development project, a two-storey 1600m2 Commercial and Retail Building. The ground floor is made up of six retail businesses and a café, and the first floor will be a shared office space. The project is located on a busy arterial road in Papamoa, and before construction could start an existing industrial warehouse had to be dismantled and taken offsite to be rebuilt elsewhere. Construction started in 2020, and was completed in 2021.
TAHATAI COAST PRIMARY SCHOOL
EDUCATION / $1.5m / Tauranga
Tahatai Coast is a two stage remediation project on the administration building at Tahatai Coast Primary School in Papamoa. The building had been vacant for two years due to water ingress and hazardous levels of mould. Stage 1 consisted of building encapsulation and a full clean and sterilisation. The building then had to be tested and accredited as being safe by an independent consultant. Stage 2 incorporated the removal of the roofing to repitch the trusses, replacement of building cladding and a internal fitout. The project has its challenges working on an existing building with new discoveries at every step of the way and having to be completed within the live school environment. But it means a huge amount to the school community which makes it rewarding. Project commenced November 2020 and completed in May 2022.
THREE KINGS UNITED NEW CLUBROOMS
COMMUNITY / $4m / Auckland
Completed in November 2020, C3 were responsible for the construction of the new clubroom facility for Three Kings United (now known as Auckland United Football Club) at Keith Hay Park. The building, designed by Copeland Associates Architects, is a new 950m2 facility, including open plan clubrooms with bar and kitchen, modern changing facility to cater for 6 premiere teams, referee facilities, public toilet block and elevated viewing platform. This project was a labour of love, with C3 first engaged in early 2017. We are stoked with how it came out and happy to have worked with TKU, CAA and Kwanto to get this fantastic project completed.
BAYWAVE AQUATIC CENTRE UPDATES
COMMUNITY / $1m / Papamoa
The Baywave Aquatic Centre Updates project was completed in September 2019. This project consisted of the construction of new changing rooms and new plantroom for the Baywave Aquatic Centre. As well as the new construction there were remediation works to the majority of the glass facade of the building to fix water ingress issues and then internal fitout works to staff offices.

MACLEANS SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY BLOCK Stage 1 of 3
EDUCATION / $16m / Auckland
The demolition and re-build of the Macleans Science and Technology Block is a 3 stage project. Stage 1 involved the demolition of the existing asbestos clad, leaking facilities, and construction of the new 800m2 Food and Technology Block. In total, this block consisted of seven new teaching spaces made up of a food tech room, computer teaching space, wood and metal working rooms with welding bays. Once completed, C3 was responsible for the relocation of the existing machinery, fittings, and fixtures, which had to be transferred from the old to the new block during the school holiday period to ensure continuity for Macleans College students. Stage 1 of this project involved significant challenges such as working within a live school environment, removing asbestos and contaminated ground, tight working areas, and detailed delivery management to ensure no downtime or disruptions during schooling, especially during specific periods of time i.e., Cambridge Exams.
FLANSHAW ROAD SCHOOL SNU
EDUCATION / $2m / Auckland
This project involved the build of a Special Needs Unit on the Flanshaw Road School campus. Special consideration had to be given to materiality and quality of finishes due to the unique requirements of some of the students.

A project that was humbling to be involved with, C3 loves to be part of delivering buildings for kids who need and appreciate them.

EDUCATION / $6m / Auckland
We delivered over 1000m2 of new innovative learning spaces at this leading edge junior school in Karaka, Auckland.

MOTAT BUILDING 6 REFURBISHMENT
INDUSTRIAL / $2m / Auckland
The Building 6 refurbishment project involved the re-pitching and reroofing of the existing building as well as pouring a new slab internally to a high spec, among other building additions and improvements. Timeframes, driven by the arrival of an international exhibition, were extremely tight. C3 coordinated multiple overlapping workfaces, within a live museum environment to successfully deliver the project on time when others said it was impossible. C3 are proud to have worked collaboratively with the client team toward the successful outcome. A massive effort by everyone involved.
