JMA have completed an external refurbishment of the paint work to the exterior of Government House for Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet.
Government House, Wellington is the official residence of the Governor-General of New Zealand
Floor area: 4,200 m²
Phone: 04-389 8055
Architectural style: Edwardian architecture
Construction started: 1908
The Governor-General is a symbol of New Zealand’s unity and leadership, with the holder of the Office fulfilling important constitutional, ceremonial, international, and community roles.
The Governor-General is appointed on the recommendation of the Prime Minister of New Zealand to serve as the representative of the Head of State, Elizabeth II, Queen of New Zealand.
New Zealand’s Head of State is non-partisan and is not involved in the “business” of government, which is the responsibility of the Prime Minister and the Cabinet. This arrangement is best described by the saying that “while the Sovereign reigns, the Government rules.”
New Zealand is a constitutional democracy and neither the Governor-General nor the Queen takes an active or initiating role in the executive functions of Government. By convention the Head of State acts on the advice of Ministers of the Crown, except on rare occasions such as when appointing a Prime Minister after an election.
Housing New Zealand
Housing New Zealand’s latest development of 38 apartments in the heart of Berhampore is sure to assist in the growing need for social housing in New Zealand.
JMA Decorators were selected to carry out all of the interior and exterior decoration with completion well in time for official opening in mid September 2018.
Levin Water Treatment Plant
The Levin Water Treatment Plant upgrade is helping future-proof the town’s water supply.
Phase one of the upgrade was the construction of a new six-million-litre reservoir tank, measuring 31 metres in diameter and nine metres high. It adds to two existing concrete reservoirs – a four-million-litre tank built in 1965, and a 2.5-million-litre tank built in 1943.
The new reservoir provides the town with at least 24 hours of water storage capacity. Previously storage capacity had been 19 hours typically, but only 13 hours during peak demand in summer.
More recent phases of the upgrade include a new clarifier and UV treatment system to further improve the water quality and achieve a higher grading under the Drinking Water Standards of New Zealand.
JMA Decorators Limited were selected to assist to bring the existing 10 treatment tanks into the new livery utilising environmentally aesthetic Karaka Green to better blend into the immediate environs.
