HAWKES BAY CREMATORIUM
The new Hawkes Bay Crematorium replaces the existing crematorium in the same location as the existing cemetery. The project consists of a new chapel for funeral services including an arrival porte cochere for the hearse, seating for approx 70 mourners and a sheltered outdoor area for the overflow of mourners. There is a separate building to house the new crematory together with a view area an with associated facilities with the processing of the ashes. There is a public toilet facility for the crematorium and cemetery. The project is located and designed to allow for the construction of the new facility while the existing building remains in place until the new crematory is commissioned. The crematorium services the municipality as well as the multiple funeral directors of the Hawkes Bay region.
The chapel is a precast concrete construction clad with charred larch wood cladding and simple white finishes inside with a stone floor. The crematorium is constructed with heavily textured precast concrete panels left natural and a polished concrete floor. The toilet block is bagged concrete block work.
