During previous employment, Mike was the lead engineer on the design and construction of this culturally sensitive project. The project consisted of two separate structures, the larger of which included a meeting space for up to 300 people, a taunga and Archive museum and commercial kitchen. The other structure was a two storey office block. This project was the first Living Building in New Zealand (under the Living Building Challenge or LBC) and incorporated many innovative structural systems, including post-tensioned round-wood shear walls and round-wood floors, to satisfy the requirements of the LBC.
