John Spencer Way, Hamilton Airport
One of Australasia’s largest, privately-owned farm machinery distributors, Landpower, purchased a site adjacent to Hamilton Airport to build a new complex. The project is located on a 3h lot that is now the new home of CLAAS Harvest Centre, Waikato. The centre includes a training and demonstration hub for five other dealerships in the North Island, as well as a showroom, offices, parts storage, workshops, and yards.
The client had been looking for an appropriate site for many years and had investigated multiple properties before we were brought on board.
Veros was initially engaged by the client to undertake due diligence of the site purchased conditionally from Waikato Regional Airport. This involved preparing and lodging land use consent and undertaking financial feasibility to test the viability of the project. Our team’s effort in this initial stage of work gave the client confidence to proceed with the sale. Following this, the client partnered with our team to deliver the project as principal representative.
We ensured the smooth delivery of the design, construction, and migration of the project and implemented a design and construction contract to provide arm’s length contact between client and contractor. This arrangement protected the clients’ interest while maintaining strong relationships between contractors to allow for efficient project delivery.
We were faced with a limited project timeline that required collaboration between the client and the land vendor to allow early access to commence building works prior to the title being issued.
The delivery of the high-quality industrial premises was completed in May 2021 and involved a multi-service approach from Veros. The quality and innovation of the centre sets a new benchmark for the business, serving the Waikato area and beyond, and catering to the continued growth in sales of front-line tractors, material handling, and feeding equipment.
