Project Scope

Hopper Developments, a client of Kaizon, is a privately-owned land development company based in Orewa. They are best known for their expertise in creating comprehensively planned coastal lifestyle developments. Cabra Developments is a long established privately owned company based in Rodney, North Auckland and have over 30 years experience. David Barr, Construction Manager Hopper Developments, approached Kaizon for Quantity Surveying services on stage one of a new luxury retirement home being built on Station Road, Huapai, Auckland.

Country Club Huapai is currently under construction to become a superior retirement home for those over 60 years of age. The Retirement Home project is a joint venture between Hopper Developments Ltd and Cabra Developments Ltd. The project is expected to be completed by mid 2020, and is valued at approximately $33m for each of the three stages of the project. The high-end aged care development will involve the construction of 40 buildings over 57,000m2. The development will total 325 accommodation units.


David and the team at Hopper Developments were pleased with the contract negotiations and the clauses that were recommended to be added. They were pleased with how Kaizon ensured there was always a senior member involved in the project and the quick responses that were given to contractor queries. Perhaps the most valuable service that Kaizon provided was the fact that the team at Kaizon have experience working as both client-side and contractor side. This allowed Gus and the team to give knowledgeable and sound advice to David, and provide direction and clarity to certain aspects of the project. David continued to say, “Gus and the team have been invaluable to this project by providing advice and imparting their knowledge to us. They have given this project 110% effort. Their responses are always timely and their advice is always trustworthy and accurate. I would highly recommend Kaizon to oversee any project to ensure timing and costs are tracking well and are fair.”
