Metlifecare – Greenwich Gardens


Greenwich Gardens is a premium retirement village located on Auckland’s North Shore. Built in 2015, it offers residents a full spectrum of living options, from independent villas and apartments through to supported living, rest home, and hospital-level care.  

The Challenge:

To provide all the electrical systems for the construction of a high-end village designed to meet the unique needs of older New Zealanders. Metlifecare engaged DGE to work on the initial phases of Greenwich Gardens’ construction, including 27 villas, a multi-story complex housing a range of apartments and high-grade care suites, and a range of recreational facilities.  

The Scope:

To provide the electrical components for every building and service in the village. Such a large, complex project required an experienced and highly-skilled team to install all the electrical systems, including a specialist 1600 AMP mains switchboard designed to handle high loads. Not only did the village need the usual cabling for lights and power outlets, but also connections for a 17-metre heated swimming pool, spa pool, sauna, café, bar, workshop, gym, commercial kitchen, CCTV, after-hours entry, hospital-level care suites, and an emergency medical call system in each dwelling.  

The Solution:

Fully scoping the project requirements, planning proactively, communicating consistently and providing an ongoing maintenance schedule. DGE has vast experience in dealing with projects of this scale. They regularly met with their contractors, the developers, and all other concerned parties to maintain clear lines of communication. This attention to detail meant that they could intercept any issues and ensure they stayed on schedule. They assigned their most skilled and knowledgeable contractors to the job to deal with the technical installations and the special requirements of the three-phase 1600 AMP mains switchboard.  

The Outcome:

This large and challenging project was completed on time and handed over defect-free. Metlifecare were so impressed with DGE’s work and expertise that they awarded them the ongoing maintenance contract for the entire retirement village & also the maintenance contracts on three other Villages, Orchards in Glenfield and The Poyton Takapuna & Gulf rise Red Beach, ensuring that their electrical systems were in safe hands and helping them look after the wellbeing of their residents.
