Oaks Shores Remediation

Brosnan’s South Island team in Queenstown have overseen the Oaks Queenstown Shores Resort remediation project and ensured minimal disruption for guests and residents through our adaptable programme and innovative build methodologies.

Situated on the picturesque shores of Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown, the Oaks property is a four-block, multi-unit hotel/apartment complex undergoing extensive remediation.

The scope of work encompasses the remediation of external cladding, structural elements, balconies, balustrades, interior and exterior walls, window joinery, and roofs.

Brosnan provided valuable buildability advice and innovative programme delivery options to mitigate risk and achieve a cost-effective solution.

Our flexible and responsive approach allowed us to adjust our work programme and accommodate scope increases as additional defects were discovered during the remediation process. Twice monthly updates, incorporating transparent pricing, ensuring proactive communication with the Body Corporate regarding programme and budget changes.

Brosnan’s emphasis is on minimising disruption, noise, and dust within the live and sensitive hotel environment. For instance, to reduce construction traffic on the complex’s access road, we collaborated with an engineering firm to develop a bespoke Materials Handling Unit (MHU). This unit, strategically located away from the access road, facilitates the efficient delivery of supplies and safe removal of waste materials, and streamlines site operations.

Maintaining a close partnership with the hotel’s management, we keep them informed of upcoming activities and agree on suitable work start and end times.

Continuous inspection by multiple consultants has ensured rigorous quality assurance on-site, impressing stakeholders with the high standards upheld throughout the project.


We have engaged Brosnan to undertake a highly complex and complicated watertightness remediation. The nature of the project has called for a high level of planning, skill and attention to detail.

Brosnan have overcome numerous unforeseen hurdles along the way. We have been impressed with the collaborative approach of Brosnan, particularly around methodology. They have provided innovative solutions for challenging situations, particularly as needs have evolved during construction.

You certainly have an outstanding team; they all do a wonderful job. I can’t tell you how many times Reece has gone above and beyond for us, which I so appreciate. We have been incredibly fortunate to have such a talented, professional and committed team. The team culture and integrity is second to none. The result to our complex has been exemplary."
