BrainTree Wellness Centre Project

BrainTree Wellness Centre

The BrainTree Wellness Centre is an innovative, first-of-its-kind project currently happening in Ōtautahi-Christchurch that will support people living with neurological conditions to live well in the community once established. 

There is a growing & unmet need to support those living with neurological conditions in their homes and communities. This is why Multiple Sclerosis & Parkinson’s Canterbury & Dementia Canterbury have joined forces to create the BrainTree Wellness Centre.

The centre will be located on Langdons Road in Papanui, Christchurch.  The building works officially began in February 2021 & the centre is expected to open its doors to the public by May 2022.

One Point Of Call - We Do It All

Partnerships are key to us at South Island Plumbing.  With our clients, our suppliers, our staff & our network of specialist teams.  

South Island Plumbing in conjunction with Christchurch Electrical & its collection of specialist divisions is proud to be working on this unique project with head building contractor, Armitage Williams providing electrical, plumbing, communications & HVAC to the wellness centre.

We have been installing base build plumbing throughout the centre, as well as some tenancy plumbing fit outs.  We are also working in conjunction with our specialist air conditioning team, The Heat Pump People to install a suspended drainage system for the heat pump units located in the ceiling.

The electrical team have been busy delivering a comprehensive electrical & data design build package.  The electrical design includes the Orion application & upgrade of the existing Orion boundary box, main switchboard & distribution, lighting & emergency light fittings, exterior carpark lighting & light fittings as well as general power outlets.  Christchurch Communications is implementing a Cat6A structured cabling system including for Dynamix wall mounted cabinets, Ubiquiti data Wi-Fi network, TV & audio visual cabling & also the installation of all security & CCTV required cabling as directed by the client’s appointed security contractor.

Ventilation for fresh air is being installed by the Heat Pump People along with Daikin’s VRV system for the tenancies (a multi-split climate management solution that optimises comfort & control whilst delivering significant energy efficiencies).

Time To Celebrate

Our teams, along with all of the other contractors have been working hard onsite to complete this amazing project & that hard work deserves to be celebrated! Storetaste & 5th Street put on a BBQ shout recently for the project teams to say thank you for everything that has been done so far, which was greatly appreciated & welcomed by the guys!

The BrainTree team have been smashing their milestones & are now beginning to work on the interior fit-out for the centre. 

As a business we love the opportunity to work with our local community, to utilise our skills & knowledge in ways which add meaning & value to those around us.  It is for that reason that we have enjoyed being a part of this project & are excited to see the finished Centre & for its fantastic community work to begin.
