Dr Rudis

Venue design and fit-out | Auckland

A COVID lockdown in Auckland presented our client with an opportunity to renovate this venue in the bustling Viaduct Harbour. They turned to Core4 and gave the direction to complete the design and start ASAP, and have it open before the end of the lockdown and within budget. This pub renovation presented a series of new challenges with travel restrictions in and out of the Auckland area, a limited supply of materials and suitable subtrades and ever changing government imposed pandemic restrictions.

Challenge accepted; demolition commenced soon after while the design was being completed. Our dedicated teams of employees, suppliers and subtrades were able to deliver a new brewery, bowling lanes, large bar and commercial kitchen. It took long hours and a lot of problem solving but at least we were able to enjoy the magnificent view of the harbour for a few months.

This exciting renovation was delivered in time for restrictions being eased and the Viaduct area coming to life again. Dr Rudi’s had a fresh new look and feel, in-house beers were brewing, bowling balls were flying and of course the budget was intact.
