Lovely Lauriston Park

With sweeping views of farmland and the Pirongia and Te Miro Hills in the distance, Lauriston Park is quickly becoming one of Cambridge’s most sought-after retirement communities. Impact Tiling has recently completed work on the phase-one fit out, so in this blog, we take a look.

Situated on the highest point in Cambridge, the Lauriston Park complex by Arvida Living Well Community is an easy and convenient walk to Leamington village for cafés, shops, supermarket and medical centre.

Phase one of the complex opened early 2022, with 15 one-bed townhouses / villas tiled by Impact Tiling. The beautiful homes have one bedroom, a separate study and open-plan living area.

Later phases of the complex will include more villas and a new care centre, to provide assisted living, rest home accommodation and specialised dementia care. In total the finished complex will also have 183 two and three-bedroom villas, ranging in size from 80 - 205sqm. Impact Tiling is due to start on tiling the main building and stage 2 villas in June.

The homes have a Lifemark 4-star rating, meaning they’re well designed for ageing in place. Functional tiled areas feature prominently in the designs, with tiled bathrooms and laundries. The large showers (1200 x 1200) feature frameless glass, while Warmup undertile heating has been installed in the bathrooms for extra comfort and functionality.

Impact Tiling Commercial Manager Paul Le Normand says working with Arvida Group on the project has been great.

“We have a great working relationship with Arvida, who we’ve been working with for the last 3 years or so,” he says.

Arvida is one of New Zealand’s larger operators of retirement village and aged care facilities in New Zealand, with 38 retirement communities throughout New Zealand.

“This Lauriston Park job came about after we successfully completed their Coppercrest Village in Tauranga. They are a very professional company and deliver quality work.”
