Construction specs

Koa Flats is the latest in a long line of Ockham developments, so we know what works – solid timber structures, powder-coated finishes, double-glazing... it’s our fabled attention to detail that makes the Ockham difference.

The warm red brick that adorns the Koa Flats façade pays homage to the old-school brick homes from an earlier era. Timeless and enduring, brick is low-maintenance and keeps ongoing costs to a minimum, but honestly? ... we just reckon it looks blimmin’ great.

Our commitment to quality...

  • Built to the latest engineering and earthquake standards
  • Exterior walls constructed of concrete block with brick façade
  • Foundations: concrete slab on concrete ground beams
  • Structure: concrete block load-bearing walls with concrete mid-floors

  • Balustrades: powder-coated aluminium 
  • Concrete balconies with solid timber decking in upper floors; timber strucute with solid timber decking for ground floor units
  • Double-glazed windows
  • Individual instant hot water units

Bringing the outside in

Inspired by the magnificence of the Ōrākei Basin, the subtropical gardens and plunge pool set the tone for Koa Flats from the get-go, so when it came to the interiors... we brought the outside in. Soft blues echo throughout the design of Koa Flats, reminiscent of the water in the Basin and Auckland’s early evening skies. The fixtures and fittings we’ve chosen are sleek, classic, clean-lined – and a palette for you to personalise.
