Te AWA - The Base 

Te AWA, the newest showpiece of The Base, was developed by Tainui Group Holdings Ltd in multiple stages from 2008 to 2011. The Base is also now the largest retail centre in New Zealand.

Te AWA is a high quality retail mall development that houses a range of international retail outlets, with major tenants being Farmers and Hoyts, and uses state of the art technology and management systems.  In doing so, Te AWA sets a new benchmark for retail in Australasia.

Argus became involved initially as part of the design team, developing a fire protection solution with a high degree of flexibility to suit the expanding nature of the project, as well as accommodating a number of spectacular architectural features such as the transparent membrane roof structure known as ETFE (Ethylene Tetra Flouro Ethylene).

As the project moved ahead Argus mobilised a construction team to install and commission the fire systems, while continuing the design function for later stages.

On completion, the ongoing fire system servicing of this site, as well as a large number of other properties in the Tainui portfolio has been entrusted to the Argus team.
