Felton Road Winery, Bannockburn, Central Otago - August 2015


Peak Projects have been appointed by the Felton Road Winery as project managers for the design and construction of a new subterranean barrel cellar and a substantial extension to the existing "front-of-house" facilities.  The two projects are being developed independently, but overlapping in time.


Design and contractor procurement for the cellar is now complete, earthworks have started and building will commence early in September with projected completion for December 2015.  The extension is presently going through design development with procurement and then construction due to be underway within the next few months.  Construction may need to be "staged" to suit the winery's on-going business, with a break during the summer months and completion following the 2016 harvest.

Amisfield Winery - New Store, Lowburn, Central Otago - August 2015


Initially Peak Projects were engaged to provide design coordination and limited cost advice on a project that had already commenced.  Over the following few months, the role gradually expanded and PPIL were asked to take over the full project management of the development of a large insulated agricultural shed that was being relocated and architecturally modified to potentially fulfil the dual role of barrel and goods store.  The project is now under construction with completion envisaged for later this year.
