Role: Development Management & Client Representation
Cambridge Estates was engaged as consulting development manager to undertake a comprehensive property review post the 2011 Canterbury Earthquakes.
The role included redefining and evaluating Mainpower’s Head Office property space requirements, industry trends, future growth needs and incorporated evaluating existing and alternative locations, accessibility, local authority compliance, bulk and location designs and costings.
A decision to relocate to new purpose built premises in Rangiora was taken incorporating office, warehouse, service and storage areas built to Importance Level 4 (IL4) seismic standards.
Cambridge Estate’s engagement was extended to take full responsibility for total project delivery which included identification and selection of the project team; contractor prequalification and tender; through to construction completion.
The project was finished within predetermined budgets and time frames despite regional post earthquake consultant and contractor resource limitations.
“John Coers, Cambridge Estates’ Managing Director, demonstrated an inclusive and engaging management style and conducted business responsibilities and relationships in an open, frank, fair and honest manner. He consistently acted for and in the best interests of MainPower.
Of particular value was his ability to identify, lead and work with a competent, focused and cohesive team whilst always engaging with MainPower.
He operates with a unique and valuable skill with great understanding and expertise of the property industry.
I would be happy to recommend John Coers and Cambridge Estates Ltd in the future.”
– Warren Wright, Financial Manager, MainPower
