Stage 1 involved alterations to the Level 1 and 2 office space for Pegasus Health staff to occupy the building above the new medical centre.

Stage 2 covered the fit-out of the new medical centre on the Ground Floor, including construction of a new entrance-way and façade.

Hawkins collaborated with the client and consultant team on variation pricing and budget, providing different cost and value management options throughout to ensure rigid medical facility construction standards were met. This process significantly assisted the client to manage their budget constraints.

Hawkins worked closely with the client and consultant team to ensure constant communication throughout the project. Programme management was critical to the delivery of works, as the new facility would be operational immediately upon occupancy. Long lead-time items were ordered well in advance to ensure no delays, and Hawkins provided solutions to several design and cost issues not considered at tender stage, including drainage and floor levelling compound.

The end result was that Hawkins delivered a high-quality, fully-operational medical centre, on-time and within budget for Pegasus Health and the Christchurch community.

Prime Minister Bill English officially opened Pegasus House in May 2017.
