Photo: MARTIN DE RUYTER By TRACY NEAL A12.5-metre by 3m mosaic tiled panel sporting the Lucas Batteries brand and logo which was unearthed during demolition of a commer- cial building in Halifax St, has been incorporated into a new building on the same site. The 21-tonne panel was revealed when the original building, owned by Gibbons Con- struction, started to come down. It was created by the firm s founder, Bill Gibbons, who laid the tiles in 1964. Son Roger Gibbons, the governing director of Gibbons Construction, said the mosaic tiles were supplied by Lucas Batteries and imported from England pre-made into foot- square (30cm-square) sheets, then laid on the panel. Mr Gibbons said the Halifax St building was the first com- mercial building constructed by Gibbons as a joint venture between the firm and former Nelson sports announcer Alan Patterson. It was built specially for Lucas Industries, which was in the business of supplying batteries to the former motor assembly industry in Nelson. Nelson architect Andrew Irv- ing, of Irving Smith Jack which designed the new Gibbons build- ings, engineered by Aurecon New Zealand, said the notion of incorporating something old into a new building that exceeded modern seismic code rules, was quite challenging . A small patch of missing tiles would be fixed with some of the original blue tiles which, by a small miracle, were held by a Nelson woman. Gibbons general manager Shane Trench said: A woman who used to work for Lucas -- she still has a box of the tiles. The panel has been re- installed in a wall of the new building s drive-through to the car park at the rear, but it will be visible from the street. Leadership on the line Blessed choice: Archdeacon Harvey Ruru, right, looks towards Grant Robertson, left, David Cunliffe and Shane Jones while performing a blessing at the start of the Labour Party leadership selection meeting. Photo: MARTIN DE RUYTER Some 200 Labour Party faithful packed into the Victory Com- munity Centre on Saturday as the leadership road show came to town. None of the contenders -- Grant Robertson, David Cunliffe and Shane Jones -- did their chances any harm during the session, which is being rep- licated around the country because the party now allows grassroots members a say in the leadership. Mr Robertson evoked Norman Kirk in pushing family values: everyone wanted some- where to work, somewhere to live, someone to love and some- thing to hope for. Mr Cunliffe pointed to Nelson s low wages and high production of raw, rela- tively low-value products and pledged to get rid of slave fish- ing boats and restored Labour true red ideals. Mr Jones went for laughs, repeating his nick- name for Prime Minister John Key as the $50-million gorilla and also selling himself as the politician best able to reach the 800,000 eligible Kiwis who did not vote in the last election.
