Recently opened in Albany, Auckland is the new EVERLAST store. The Architect – Matt Godward, Godward Design Space provided a digital render of his vision for the look and feel of this new development. The finished result reflects a very accurate response to his design. The feature wall in the business utlised our hand applied, pre-coloured ROCKCOTE Velvetina that was burnished for that concrete look after which Kevin Cotter, owner of PDS applied our protective wax to give the Velvetina finish additional depth.

To mark the 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in June 2016, the building has been named as the Queen Elizabeth II Pukeahu Education Centre. The centre will also include a small display honouring Mother Aubert and the Sisters of Compassion. In August 2016 the centre was opened by the former Governor-General Sir Jerry Mateparae accompanied by the former Prime Minister Rt Hon John Key and the Minister for Arts, Culture and Heritage Hon Maggie Barry.

Founder of the Sisters of Compassion Suzanne Aubert has been declared ‘venerable’ by the Catholic Church.

The declaration by Pope Francis is a major milestone on the path to sainthood being bestowed on Mother Aubert, who came to New Zealand from France in 1860 and died here aged 91 in 1926.

The Sisters of Compassion provide many charitable services, including running a soup kitchen in central Wellington.

Our Rockcote Marrakesh tadeladkt lime plaster finish was the selected finish to interior walls. Hand applied and finished by stone polishing.
