A 164-ton crane towers over the 12-storey Nautilus apartments in Orewa, lifting materials onto the roof as part of ongoing repairs to the leaky building.

The Plant Room, on the roof, was open to the elements and not properly sealed, allowing water to penetrate.

A roof is being placed over the Plant Room, at an estimated cost of $354,000.

The crane is expected to complete the job this afternoon.
The Nautilus apartments are gradually being swathed in plastic wrap as the two-year-long repair of the leaky building, which began at the end of last year, continues.

Prendos is project managing the work and its director, Natasha Cockerell, says the contractors’ yard in the library carpark is functioning well with access restricted to early morning for trucks and the majority of material leaving the site via the hole cut into the carpark within the Nautilus.

Three hoists for people and materials have been installed to pass up from the carpark and on both sides of the southwest end of the building.

Demolition is progressing with the cladding and glazing and deck screeds removed. Decayed timber framing is being removed and remaining framing treated with a preservative.
