Veros Property Services have been proud to deliver the Learning Links Childcare Centre for the Waikato-based Kimpton family.
Veros have provided full development management services for the project from concept to completion, working with Learning Links to develop the building brief and tenant specification, working with a leading design and consenting team, and then appointing and working with Fosters Construction as the main contractor to successfully deliver the project.
The project involves delivery of a modern Learning Links Childcare Centre at 38 Hector Drive, Rototuna. The building provides best practice of modern learning environments that support early childhood learning and discovery in a stimulating and safe environment. It has been designed and delivered with high floor to ceiling heights, environmentally sustainable features and design.
The space includes a vegetable garden and sustainable environmental practices within the building and play areas which aligns with the Learning Links philosophy of low emissions and zero waste commitments. There is the opportunity for the children to grow, harvest, cook and consume their own produce on site, providing a link between nature, food and wellbeing.
The building has been designed and built with durable and low-maintenance materials, given the Kimpton Family are long-term property owners and investors in
Development director Michael Kemeys said that at the outset of the project the brief from the client was clear.
“They wanted the building design to be in keeping with the agricultural roots of the Kimpton family, and to embrace the design influences from the barn and barn doors from the original family farm.”
Construction started in February 2018 and was completed by mid-October 2018.
For Veros, the project follows a period of sustained growth and success in Waikato.
“Veros have been operating in Hamilton and the wider Waikato since 2013,” says Director Peter Williams.
“In 2017 we moved our office from the outskirts of the CBD into Victoria Street in the heart of the city. We have seen the growth of our team here occur off the back of building strong relationships with our clients, and developing a reputation for delivering success.”
Veros has a team of close to 20 highly experienced project managers, development managers and property asset managers working across Waikato and Bay of Plenty.
“We are a privately owned business, based out of New Zealand’s provinces,” Peter says. “Our strength is that we are based out of the regions, and we know the property markets and development industry of the regions intimately.
“We see Hamilton as a city experiencing a renaissance. There is investment and development occurring where businesses are recognising the value of being in the city centre, and people are choosing to live here for a range of reasons including being close to amenities, cultural facilities, and a growing metropolitan modern lifestyle the city if offering. Hamilton is growing up.
“Our work is vast and varied,” he says. “In 2018 we are delivering more than 300 residential lots, townhouses, luxury apartments, new office space, a $50m spa and leisure centre, and a $40m public realm upgrade to name a few. We pride ourselves on having the skills and experience to deliver projects from concept to completion, acting commercially, and achieving outcomes and success for our clients.”
