Our project for Wellington Water installing a new rising main on Taranaki St on behalf of Wellington City Council is seeing a lot of interest currently.

Giving back to the community is something we're always keen to do.

We have had a great couple of weeks around the Wakefield St intersection on our Taranaki St Rising Main Project. 

As is our passion here, we're always looking for new challenges.

This week we did our last cut in on the first tranche of Galvanised Iron Water Main Renewals and I just wanted to celebrate some of the work that our team have done in addressing leaks on the water network and delivering quality, resilient infrastructure that will service our communities into the future.                            

When it comes to installing pipes in Wellington’s busy city streets, we’ve got solutions to keep things moving as well as possible.

We’ve been having fun on Featherston Street in Wellington's busy CBD where we are renewing the wastewater rising main with our friends at Stantec on behalf of Wellington Water.

The team felt as blurry as this photo after a fantastic night at the 2023 Civil Contractors New Zealand (CCNZ) Wellington and Wairarapa awards.

Over the last few weeks, we have been working on the connection for a new 450OD rising main in Bowen St, Wellington CBD on behalf of @wellingtonwater. The connection is approximately 6m deep from a new 2.55m diameter shaft into Wellington’s main intercepting sewer – a hand tunneled structure from the 1930’s.

Our team put in a couple of big shifts at the weekend on the Jervois Quay Stormwater Repair alongside E Carson & Sons, EN Ramsbottom, ATMS and a heap of other Wellington Contractors.

A very productive couple of weeks on our Featherston, Whitmore & Bowen St Rising Main Upgrade project has seen us ram a pipe 50m across Lambton Quay. Amazing to think that a critical piece of this project has now been installed underneath the ground without digging any holes in this busy intersection

Never judge a job by what we leave on the surface.

This looks like a nice section of asphalt reinstatement and some kerbing. It's hard to believe that we just completed installation of two 6m deep chambers in this busy urban Wellington street.
