The redevelopment of Aotea Square was part of Auckland Council’s vision to make Auckland one of the most desirable international cities in the world. We revitalised the square so that it once again became a vibrant space for everyone to enjoy.
The project required reconstruction of the roof slab to an underground car park as well as a total make over to the open space of the square. Main contractor Hawkins Construction was responsible for the demolition and reconstruction of the car park roof slab, while we reconstructed the square from the deck of the roof slab upwards. Our scope included all the structural concrete to form steps, walls and terraces together with more than 7,500m2 of high quality paving. We installed a range of street furniture, trees, street lighting and feature hand rails.
The complexity of the works and the sites location right in the centre of Auckland CBD meant a very high level of planning and programming was required.
We carefully planned deliveries and movement of construction vehicles to minimise disruption to traffic and protect the safety of the public. Truck movements were scheduled for off-peak times, and we kept the public continually informed of works that might impact them. At peak construction, there were over 25 truck movements in and out of the site per day.
