Customlight Engineering

An impressive line-up: Customlight Engineering delivers the goods

The line-up of designs and products Customlight Engineering puts out is nothing short of impressive.

Customlight Engineering

Design Engineer Glen Wykes bought the company three years ago, but he has been in the industry for most of his adult life. With his wife Toni-Jane, he has grown the business from its Treffers Road premises, where it manufactures for the lighting, sheet-metal, signage and building industries, among others. Its clientele covers a broad spectrum, from homeowners to international hotel chains, and from retail outlets to universities and hospitals.
Products range from steel gates for residential and commercial clients to metal staircases, window flashings, and presentation furniture such as computer stands and lecterns at the University of Canterbury, Lincoln University and ARA, with home dialysis trollies also made for DHBs.
Glen’s innovative thinking and design skills have seen LED backlit mirrors adorning motels in Melbourne, Fiji and New Zealand, and children running and playing on their custom-built playground at Cathedral Grammar School. There may be no end to Glen’s potential, with lighting units for salmon farms currently under development.
All this and much more suggests Customlight Engineering is the go-to place for all things related to metal fabrication, sheet metal and powder-coating, lighting and signage structures.
Glen is also focused on landscape products such as planter boxes and borders, bollards, gates and fencing. His latest creation is a pizza oven chimney and bench area for a residence in Christchurch. It is the kind of thing Glen hopes to do more of. Many, many satisfied customers attest to the quality and professionalism his company provides. See customlight.co.nz or contact Glen on 03-341 7175.

DNG Construction Ltd is going from strength to strength. With countless completed building projects around the city, the team behind this dedicated company can provide you with the experience, knowledge and commitment to ensure your building project, commercial or residential, becomes a reality.

Le Bakermen Cafe & Bakery

LeBakermen Café and Bakery at 187 Wigram Road offers a strong example of the level of dedication the company applies to every project. “The owner originally just wanted some help framing partition walls and installing Gib board, but soon learned we could help with organising subcontractors, mechanical services, electricians, gasfitters, plumbers and painters etc,” owner Dean Inglis says.
“We ended up helping him through the whole project from start to finish, including all paperwork, applying for and obtaining Code Compliance from the council on the owner’s behalf.”
LeBakermen Café and Bakery owner William Leung was very impressed by the company’s dedication to the project. “DNG Construction LTD has been very accommodating from start to finish. They were always one call away and ready to help. One of our ovens had no water lines connected, but DNG had them installed and connected in two days,” he says.
From design, to construction, to the finish product, DNG Construction is with you every step of the way, with the capacity to handle larger commercial project, residential builds and smaller maintenance jobs, including skylight replacement and bathroom refurbishments.

Lady Wigram Retirement Village

Unique model of retirement living: Lady Wigram Retirement Village

When it comes to sourcing retirement facilities for your loves ones, not surprisingly quality is front of your mind. As soon as you arrive at the Lady Wigram Retirement Village, it’s clear this is a unique model of retirement living and one that is all about lifestyle.

Lady Wigram Retirement Village

Owned by the Golden Healthcare Group, the concept for the $100 million retirement village was launched post-quake, with the first stage of 101 villas opening in 2015.
This year the development at 210 Kittyhawk Avenue has moved one step closer to completion, with the opening of 16 new apartments and a community centre dubbed The Club House, featuring a restaurant, bar,
billiard room, movie theatre and library.
The next stage of Lady Wigram is also now well underway, and will offer another 14 apartments, a swimming pool, spa and gym. When completed, there will be 73 apartments, a rest home, a dementia facility and a hospital.

Lady Wigram Retirement Village
Golden Healthcare Group purchased the 5.7ha Lady Wigram site in 2013 from Ngāi Tahu Property, the developer of The Landing – the $40 million central hub of the Wigram Skies subdivision, at the heart of which is an architecturally designed town square and a collection of restaurants, cafés, retail and mixed-use community space. Not only is Lady Wigram a short walk from The Landing, it is also just a short drive to Hornby Mall, the Hornby Working Men’s Club and the city.
Everything about the retirement village speaks of the quality and attention to detail this service provider brings to the table, with this resort-style living piquing the interest of a younger demographic.
“In our experience, a lot of people are choosing to move into retirement village life earlier because they recognise the benefits of the ease of living and it allows them greater freedom and more social interaction,” owner John Tooby says.
“This means that it’s really important for us to provide amenities that help residents to socialise and keep active. More and more, retirement villages are becoming communities within their own right.”
Golden Healthcare Group already provides dementia, aged care and mental health support at seven other facilities, employing 259 staff and cares for approximately 350 residents.

A gorgeous variety: checking out Wigram’s delightful bakery Gorgeous Food

It’s something of an institution on Springs Road in Wigram. For more than ten years the Gorgeous Food specialist bakery has been delighting locals and those from further afield, with its ‘gorgeous’ range of tasty classic and not-so-traditional freshly-made treats, both savoury and sweet.

Gorgeous Food

“We are proud to have served the community for so long,” says co-owner JoAnne Fryer. “Our food is healthy and made fresh every day in our bakery using top quality ingredients. Real butter and eggs – baking the way it should be.”
Firm favourites are the delicious pies, quiches and sausage rolls, as well as the bakery’s own style muffins and scones, Dagwood sandwiches, filled rolls and wraps.
“We have been asked a lot lately for salads and we have really enjoyed creating some especially scrumptious flavour combinations that we have had to try ourselves, of course. We have a chicken teriyaki salad with baby corn and bok choy, a pesto pasta salad with smoked chicken and a roast pumpkin salad with beetroot and feta. They are really good to eat on a hot day – or any day for that matter.”
An array of slices too has customers returning. ”Our gluten-free caramel meringue slice flies off the shelves as does the citrus slice and the ginger macadamia slice. And we are famous for nana’s chocolate fudge slice – a much loved family recipe. A slice and a cup of our takeaway Vivace coffee – what better way to indulge yourself?”
Gluten free products are available, along with a great variety of options for business or home catering.
