Holy Trinity Cathedral




The General Trust Board of the Anglican Diocese of Auckland


Dominion Constructors and the Russell Family have a relationship with the Cathedral extending back many years. During the Cathedral construction in the mid 1990’s Dominion undertook the works to install the sarked timber work within the Cathedral.

The recent Cathedral completion works undertaken by Dominion involved two phases; removing the existing Nave Bridge and upgrading the St Mary’s entrance carkpark and tiles.

The Nave Bridge removal had a very tight timeframe associated with it, as the Cathedral needed to be operational again by September for a special event. With works only beginning on 1 June, the project team had to tightly control the programme to ensure this deadline was met.

Demolition of the Nave inside the envelope of the existing building created some interesting challenges involving: propping the Nave and using scaffold over 25 metres high; demolishing the Nave Bridge and removal of over 40 tonne of concrete from site; installation of new seismic steel bracing down both sides of the Nave and then reinstating the Nave walls to gib and paint finish.

The external site works were a far simpler process with the parking area tar mac removed and re-poured and only tiling of the terrace to be finished when the client-sourced tiles arrive.
