Outdure deck frames and decking were installed at the Genesis Energy headquarters in Auckland, New Zealand to create a recreational space for the staff.

Located in the Central Park One business park, Genesis Energy sought to create an expansive exterior space for their staff. Key design considerations included commercial loading, ventilation and a flush level between the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Though Williams Architects wanted to initially use hardwood on a steel frame, they decided on Outdure’s products for their moisture-resistant properties and low height capabilities. The pre-assembled QwickBuild aluminium frames, each measuring 8m x 2m, were lifted onto the site by a Hiab truck.

Spread across an area of 175 square metres, the deck was designed for a 5 kPa load rating, and was completed in less than four days.

The deck frames and decking were installed over waterproof membrane.

Outdure products featured in the Genesis Energy project included EcoDecking Endura boards in Walnut colour, QwickBuild deck frames and a range of Outdure fasteners and QwickGrates.
