Rotorua Police Station
Police officers serving in the Rotorua area will soon be based in a brand-new police station – and not a moment too soon according to those working in the “awful ” existing premises.
The two-storey station is being constructed using PRESSS technology, with tensioning cables installed in the concrete shear walls, beams and columns to allow it to move in an earthquake without sustaining serious damage.
For this project the BBR Contech team installed 62 BBR VT CONA 12-strand, greased and sheathed tendons into the precast walls.
The new $18.5 million station is due to open in March 2014, offering an environment eminently suited to modern-day policing while reflecting the unique features of Rotorua, particularly the prominence of Māori art and culture.
