The build of the new Harbour City Funeral Home in Upper Hutt started in November 2013 and was completed in early May 2014.
The existing Harbour City Funeral Home was demolished to make way for a complete new build of a new facility three times the size of the previous one.
The project required construction of a brand new, state of the art, 450 m2 funeral home including fit out to a very high standard. Facilities include a much larger chapel and catering lounge, arrangement and viewing rooms and also new office facilities.
In addition, the building features a fully glassed vehicle display garage / showroom to house the company’s restored 1959 Cadillac.
The building is finished with a Monotek plaster and louvered cedar screens as a feature across the impressive frontage of the building along Fergusson Drive.
The site required over 500 m3 of hard fill to be brought in and compacted to 500mm across the site.
“Replacing a small, dated facility with an impressive, modern funeral home for Upper Hutt is an excellent opportunity for our team to demonstrate what a transformation we can achieve, not only with the modern exterior look but also with the attention to detail and comfort required for the interior fit out.”
