Client: Fletcher Residential Ltd.
Location: Red Beach, Auckland
Description; The contract was to carry out the earthworks drainage, storm water quality ponds, parks, retaining walls, an intersection upgrade and signalisation, roading and reticulation for 100 residential lots of approx 450m2 each. The design was for flat lots with small retaining walls on an easy grade.
The site was part of the Peninsula Golf Course which included a water course for a 70 Ha catchment, two major sewer rising mains, 2 major sewer gravity lines and multiple storm water lines. These assets all had to be kept going and eventually replaced. The ground conditions were wet and unpredictable. Overall a complex project well managed to interface with the existing assets and stay on program with an approx 18 month contract period. Cooperation between ourselves, client and consultant was a key in addressing some major unforeseen issues and the client was satisfied with a quality end product.
Ross Reid performed the role of main contractor to the principle, under a full contract as per NZS 3910:2003.
