Te Kopahou Reserve Visitor's Centre

Wellington, New Zealand

Te Kopahau Reserve Public Information Centre is located on the South Coast of Wellington at the old Owhiro Bay Quarry site. Construction incorporates part of the old Owhiro Bay Quarry Building and features information panels highlighting the geology, flora and fauna and the history of the South Coast. Such an exposed site as this requires a robust cladding system suited to this harsh marine environment. Therefore the architects specified Acquaheat Classic Metal 0.7mm, VM Quartz Zinc Hook Seam cladding system. Classic Metal’s specialist roofing and cladding systems come from a family of metal cladding systems, based on proven traditional European metal seaming methods. These specialist systems coupled with a highly corrosion resistant material like zinc result in the perfect cladding system to stand up to this harsh environment.
