MWRC Project - Te Ao Nui

Te Ao Nui is MPP’s biggest project to date. The three-story building which stands in Palmerston North’s Victoria Avenue is now the home of Inland Revenue’s Palmerston North Department, the Earthquake Commission and Objective.

For 20 months we have worked with McMillan and Lockwood and W&W Construction in Victoria Ave to bring to life the interior of one of the Manawatu’s largest building projects of 2019/2020.  Tasked with the fitting of steel stud partitioning and installation of suspended ceilings throughout the three floor building, the project is now complete.

Flick through our gallery to see the new home of Palmerston North’s Inland Revenue Department, Objective and the headquarters of Civil Defence Manawatu.

We are looking forward to working with Smith and Sons, fitting out Amayjen restaurant and cafe’s new Palmerston North premises.  Watch this space…..

Fly Palmy Arena - Arena 2

A few of our contractors can recall working on Palmerston North’s Arena 2 when it was known as Rainbow Stadium back in the mid 1970’s, which at the time was Australasia’s largest structure of its kind. Recently we were tasked with installing a new suspended ceiling to replace the original 3600m2 tiled ceiling.  Our men spent around 7000 hours replacing ceiling grid and installing some 4000 tiles in two stages over the past year, often working in challenging conditions.  The project was completed in February 2021.

Instant Finance - Princess Street, Palmerston North

We recently worked with Auckland commercial office concept design company Focusplan to help with the fit-out of what was to be the new home of the Palmerston North branch of Instant Finance. 

This involved preparation of walls with a plaster finish, steel stud wall framing, fitting aluminum door and window suite’s, and well as coordinating the installation of glass to partitioning and painting.  

The Toolshed, Rangitikei Street, Palmerston North

We were tasked with repairing and extending existing ceiling grid after a recent expansion to the store at The Toolshed in Rangitikei Street.

The design was seismically engineered to include bracing and expansion joints which will enable the ceiling to withstand any large earthquakes which the Manawatu may experience at some stage in the future.

At this stage the client has chosen to keep the existing tiles in the old grid, but may look at updating those at a later date.

Amayjen, 22 Victoria Ave, Palmerston North

Feilding’s finest restaurant is on the move to Palmerston North and we are excited to be working the team at Smith & Son’s to bring Amayjen to life in its newly designed Victoria Ave premises.


The designer has gone with two ceiling options within the restaurant and bar – GIB® Plasterboard suspended on a RONDO SCREWFIX® Concealed Ceiling System, as well as opting for a 600x600mm black aluminium suspended ceiling grid with high-acoustic black ceiling tile.

We will supply and install Fenta Hygiene tiles to the kitchen ceiling area as their washable finish makes them perfect for the area, being resistant to chemicals, steam and general soiling.

We look forward to sharing the finished product with you soon, so watch this space.
