Read up on the latest with JFC.
JFC UPDATE, 20 June 2019
JFC expanded to the South Island nearly 7 years ago with the desire to help rebuild Christchurch after the earthquakes. We are very proud of the projects we have successfully delivered, including a large number of 3water repairs and streetscape projects such as Bridge of Remembrance, Margaret Mahy Park, Victoria Square, South Frame, East Frame and Mariner Street in Sumner.
More recently, challenging conditions has meant the Christchurch market has slowed down. While there has been a few small surges of work over the last few months that has kept the team occupied, this week it was confirmed we would cease operations in Christchurch.
We have a skeleton crew remaining in Christchurch to complete our current commitments – expected to be until the end of the year. Along with some of the Christchurch team we have already integrated into our over 350 strong Auckland team over the last year, there will be new additions over the next few months.
We are constructing some of Auckland’s largest streetscape projects, including Quay Street, Karangahape Road (K Rd) Enhancement, Westfield Newmarket and Maki Street, Westgate. We have built a great reputation for successfully delivering largescale land development projects, and we will continue to deliver these for our private clients, including Metlife Care and Todd Property. We are continuing road safety works for Auckland Transport and complex park projects for Auckland Council – our nearly complete Hayman Park project in Manukau is being celebrated and officially opened by the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board on the 29th June.
Not only do we have a strong workload lookahead for the next 5-10 years across the wider Auckland area, we plan to keep growing both the construction and transport departments in the North Island. The coming years promise to be exciting times.
