Brief description of the work:
The siteworks involved constructing an all weather access to the site, stripping and levelling the site, the excavation of foundations and the supply and placing of aggregate fill. We were also required to design and build a stormwater management system so that existing pipe work, when uncovered, could be adequately drained away so that it didn’t interfere with the building foundations.
Siteworks were completed on time and on budget to allow the construction of the building to meet contract timeframes.
This project (Combined with the pond construction) won a Contractors Federation, Manawatu Branch Construction Award for projects up to $250,000.
