Manaaki Apartments


Located in Onehunga, Manaaki is an upscale apartment complex comprising four buildings with a total of 210 luxurious units. Designed to offer residents a blend of modern living and natural surroundings, this mid-rise development boasts amenities such as a pool, subtropical gardens, residents’ lounge, in-house café, and work-from-home spaces.

Neuchâtel played a pivotal role in the early stages of Manaaki’s design phase, collaborating closely with the architectural team. Our technical experts worked to address intricate detailing requirements, ensuring the selection of tailored waterproofing solutions to meet the project’s unique needs.

For the Green Roof System, we implemented our advanced Permatec waterproofing solution. Permatec stands out as a superior product, offering quick and hassle-free installation, and it comes with a 20 year guarantee. Its direct bond to the substrate effectively prevents lateral tracking of water, ensuring optimum protection against moisture intrusion. Permatec also incorporates an antiroot inhibitor, preventing any penetration of roots into the product and enhancing its longevity.

In the balcony areas, Neuchâtel Permatec was chosen for its lightweight properties and ease of installation onto the decks. The system’s monolithic nature allowed our applicator partner, Asphaltech Waterproofing, to seamlessly integrate it into doorways, windows, and cladding, resulting in a flawless finish.

At Neuchâtel, we take pride in our ability to deliver innovative waterproofing solutions that not only meet but exceed the expectations of our clients. The successful completion of the Manaaki project is a testament to our dedication to excellence in construction waterproofing.
