Lundia at Work. Architecture meets Ecosanctuary.

Welcome Shelter is an Educational & Volunteer Space at Longbush Ecosanctuary, Waimata Valley, Gisborne.

Sanctuary

Adhering to the philosophy and environmental guidelines of the project, Welcome Shelter needed environmentally friendly storage solutions, so Lundia was the natural choice.

Blog-pic2

Lundia is widely-recognised as a business which values respect for the planet and goes to great lengths to ensure its manufacturing processes, waste management and final products are as environmentally-friendly as they can make them.

Blog-pic3

It was critical to use eco-friendly installations for a project of this nature.

Lundia’s Static Shelving in a Natural Timber Finish was chosen for its sustainable and eco-friendly qualities. Ease of installation, strength, durability and the capacity to re-configure the Shelving later on, were clearly the winners on the day. And we are rightfully proud of our donations and involvement in the project.

The Welcome Shelter is a gateway for visitors to this special environment, which

includes several critically endangered native species. Access to the Welcome Shelter is free of charge for all visitors and the project aims to promote active stewardship of our natural environment.

The Ecosanctuary is approximately 120 hectares and over the past 15 years has been the rapidly restored through the efforts of Jeremy and Dame Anne Salmond. With the removal of invasive pests and weeds, alongside the planting of hundreds of thousands of native trees, the diverse ecology at Longbush is beginning to thrive again.

Lundia have been practicing environmentally sustainable design and manufacturing, since the company was formed in 1962. This makes Lundia the storage-solution manufacturer of choice for architects and designers working on green-rated projects, and for responsible consumers who care about the future of our Planet.

If you’re considering a project which needs true environmental values, then please get in touch with us today and we’ll help you get the green stars you need!

Smart Designers are Working with Lundia

comvita-1

When Comvita’s design team needed a contemporary, versatile and modular display system, they chose Lundia.

This striking installation uses Lundia’s Standard size cubes from the Cubox range finished in white Melteca. The floating display maximises product viewing and testing for customers and by wall-hanging the Cubox, Comvita can display their products within personal environments.

Four different size Cubox were supplied to reinforce the range and variety of Body care products and with an extremely tight showroom launch schedule, Lundia built and supplied Cubox ahead of time, so that vinyls and other display elements could be incorporated.

This retail application is not just testament to the quality and service provided by Lundia, it is testament to the smart designers, who can think ahead to deliver stunning and practical solutions for the retail sector. This is designsmart.

 

Lundia excels in delivering an optimised, modular and versatile solution, so if you need to expand, rethink or resize – our products will grow with you.

Many of New Zealand’s leading retailers choose Lundia for its strength, durability and eco-friendly properties. And with Lundia’s green star rated products – it’s not just a good choice, it’s a smart choice.

Schools Manage Growth with Lundia

clean-mobileManurewa High School is the largest multicultural school in New Zealand, with 1900 students representing over 40 nationalities. With an increasing role and demand from the community, Manurewa High School is certainly growing – both internally and externally.

Managing growth

Managing intake to meet community needs is one of the school’s areas of expertise. Managing Storage systems to meet the rigorous demands of a growing school and its personnel, is our area of expertise. This year, the schools’ growth has demanded more Storage in classrooms as well as multiple resource areas.

Fortunately the school had installed our Mobile Storage a few years ago, so our task was simple, because Lundia’s Storage Systems are modular, reconfigurable, expandable and versatile. This means, we can adapt and expand current Lundia systems to meet and exceed growth demands.

Keeping budgets down

Our process allowed both parties to have input to meet current demands and enabled foresight for future needs.

• Assess client’s current Storage requirements
• Audit and optimise current space
• Draft an expanded Storage plan to suit locations
• Expand current Mobile Storage
• Re-install expanded systems

By reconfiguring and expanding the current Lundia Storage Systems, huge savings were made when compared to the cost of replacing and re-supplying new systems. After a thorough audit of available space, we simply re-installed the new, expanded, modular systems to their preferred locations, on time and well within budget.

It pays to plan ahead

We know education budgets can be tight and there are key times in the year when costs are under scrutiny from governing bodies. Choosing Lundia Storage as a cost-effective base for your institution not only saves you money to begin with, but it can certainly pay dividends in the future, for growth and relocation.

“It’s the future Jim, but not as we know it…”

We recently exhibited at the Retail Futures Expo at the Viaduct in Auckland to showcase the versatility of our ecobox / cubox combinations.

We combined brightly coloured Cubox with our natural ecobox to demonstrate how you can make your storage an architectural work of art as well as a wonderful storage platform.

Educators and Designers have commended us on the design and environmental values ecobox brings to your environment.

Below are just some of the photos of our displays. We hope you enjoy them!

Shake, rattle and roll. Lundia’s still standing.

The recent earthquakes near Wellington have once again highlighted the superior strength and robust nature of our Shelving systems.

Firstly, our thoughts and best wishes are with everyone who has felt the impact of these recent tremors. And we spare a thought too for all the businesses and individuals who awoke to find much of their storage had collapsed under the strain – destroying or damaging many valuable personal and business assets.

Our Wellington agent has sent us this photo from a business enquirer, who’s storage was all but destroyed in the recent tremors…you’ll see that the Lundia storage is still standing-while the other shelves have simply buckled and collapsed.

It’s no secret that our Shelving represents some of the strongest, most versatile and environmentally-friendly Shelving in the world. Lundia Shelving is designed and built to last, it is also fire retardant, since it does not conduct heat or electricity.

ecobox. Lundia’s latest design innovation thinks inside the square and ticks all the boxes.

Lundia have successfully combined the essence of lean manufacturing, design innovation and environmental-friendliness into their latest storage and design solution. ecobox is a flexible, attractive, sturdy and modular storage system which oozes natural style and inspires you to take a few home!
ecobox is made from sustainably-harvested, plantation-grown 18mm pine, which is the same timber Lundia use to make their world-renowned shelving – so if you want to combine the beauty and proven strength of timber with natural aesthetic values – then ecobox is right for you, your home and your office.

Waste reduction, recycling, sustainability and respect for the environment are cornerstones of Lundia’s operation and philosophy.

“We found that our natural timber shelving manufacturing process, left us with lots of smaller pieces, which we would simply recycle. As part of our commitment to some of the guiding principles of lean manufacturing, we developed a system which takes these top quality pieces of timber through a recycling and re-crafting process to produce a series of beautiful, modular, natural timber storage items. ecobox is going to be totally at home in a modern office, house or educational faculty.

It carries the values of sustainable NZ natural timber, which you appreciate as soon as you see them. We’ve had some on display in our showroom for the past few weeks and we’ve had so much enquiry and had so many complements, we feel sure this is going to be a winner for many new or existing customers. It’s such a simple solution and now we’ve got another product which is totally sustainable and which transfers those properties and values into the environment they are used in”.

It also proves that often the best solutions, are often right in front of you.

The ‘big thing’ for Lundia is that they’re further reducing waste and bolstering their company values. It’s a great example of how best practise business methodologies and emotional connections to the planet can still produce a product, which ticks all the boxes.
