Queen’s Residence

Architect: Leuschke Architects

Contractor: Scarbro Construction

Location: Auckland, NZ

Queens’ Residences comprises approx. 273 Residential and Retail. Located in the heart of Auckland’s CBD.


For this project, extensive consultation during the early stages of the design phase was critical to achieving the optimal solution allowing PBI to take this project from design through to completion with uncompromised total height safety.


Challenges faced included design factors such as two main tower roofs with steep pitches of 30 degrees; and 1200 wide parapets that couldn’t be traversed or abseiled over. These issues meant that there were set limitations on the design of a fall protection/abseil system. Access to the roof is via the apartments, which also added to the level of installation difficulty. Davit arm masts were specifically modified for the project in order to assist with set up, reduce stress on installers and maintain the aesthetic of the roofs.
