Steeped in history as New Zealand's oldest and longest running addiction centre, Rotoroa Island is today an arts, heritage and conservation estate.

During the course of its 100-year history over 12000 admissions were made to Rotoroa Island, and the state-of-the-art exhibition centre tells the story of some of the patients who were housed on the island, as well as their Salvation Army minders.

Sheetmetals Ltd, working in conjunction with award-winning architects Pearson and Associates, designers of the exhibition centre, were contracted to create the RHS ceiling feature.

Designed to represent a gesture of protection, epitomising the Salvation Army's work of rehabilitating the island's inhabitants, this intricate structure of crisscross beams is a focal point in the centre.

The powder coated stainless steel structure was constructed in our workshop in Auckland and then shipped across to the island by ferry. Our team of tradesmen spent several days on the island piecing the structure together.

Next time you're visiting Rotoroa Island, look out for the ceiling feature constructed by Sheetmetals Ltd.
