LT McGuinness is a trusted partner of Moore Wilson and has been involved in the construction and refurbishment of the firm’s stores in Lower Hutt, Porirua and Wellington.
Moore Wilson’s thriving Tory Street store, with its quirky architectural features, is a Wellington institution. The seven-day-a-week operation had to continue uninterrupted as the new Fresh Market and car park were constructed.
Although the tight inner-city location posed a number of challenges, the project won a New Zealand Institute of Architects Award in 2009.
