Brief description of the work:
The project was carried out in a residential area of Waikanae with Blackley completing all of the project except the asphalt reinstatement.
The work included service location, traffic management, excavation, pipe laying, testing, valve and hydrant installation and house connections. We also supervised the asphalt reinstatement complete with sand edge sealing. Some minor concrete reinstatement work was also carried out by Blackley.
All residents were notified of the work and supplied with contact numbers should they have any issues. The contract management teams from Blackley and KDC also met on a regular basis to discuss the project.
A comprehensive site specific health and safety plan was prepared for the site and this was integrated with our traffic management plan. Site controls were put in place to ensure the safety of road-users, pedestrians and our own staff.
The site was reviewed for potential environmental issues but only our standard controls and procedures were required.
This project was completed on time and on budget with minimal disruption to the community.
