“This was the first time we had used KE KELIT’S piping systems on such a large project, the speed and ease of installation was the quickest and easiest of any piping system we have ever used. The service and technical support provided by KE KELIT prior to and during constructions was second to none. We look forward to using KE KELIT in future projects."

UNISYS HOUSE & AURORA CHAMBERS
The 50 million dollar plus redevelopment of the mid-1960s Unisys House and 1970s Aurora Chambers will reposition this high profile site for occupation by the Ministry of Social Development in Wellington, NZ.
Fronting The Terrace and Aurora Terrace, the redevelopment refines the architectural tower ‘blade’ and elements of the 18 storey Unisys House. It also redefines the seven storey Aurora Chambers by adding an additional floor and extending this new height westwards along Aurora Terrace, finishing at the current upper deck car park entry.
A new two storey retail pavilion to The Terrace creates a pedestrian scale extension at the ground and first floors and provides an enhanced entrance lobby amenity and new retail and cafe frontages.
KE KELIT was specified by the Stephenson & Turner Mechanical Engineering team. The piping systems provided an innovative high-quality solution specific to the application of chilled water.
NME Mechanical a well known Wellington Mechanical company installed the system specified and considered the innovative jointing process very quick and easy to install. This meant keeping up with construction programs was achievable.
