Public Trust Building, Wellington, NZ

Completion Date:

2019

Project Details:

As one of New Zealand’s finest examples of Edwardian Baroque architecture, The Public Trust Building sits at the heart of our country’s culture and heritage. Located on Lambton Quay in Central Wellington, Public Trust Hall is the ideal venue for corporate and social functions and events. Originally completed in 1908, Public Trust Hall was originally the principal banking chamber for the Public Trust. In 2019 a major refurbishment transformed this space into a sophisticated and contemporary venue right in the heart of Wellington.

The basement of this 100-year-old building is below street level, which created a problem when it came to refurbishing the room. Water was seeping through the old brick and concrete foundation which needed a resolution.

The technical team at Rockbond provided the solution, paint the walls and floors with 290/190 Epoxy Tie Coat, to provide a 100% bond to the original substrates for the structural mortar and floor screed, while providing an impermeable barrier that would stop the water seepage. The work was carried out by Bill Puketapu, and within a few days the basement was sorted and looked like new….whilst maintaining the heritage look and feel! This project was right at the core of what we do best….preserving and strengthening New Zealand’s Heritage Structure’s.
