In one of the biggest milestones onsite to date, the development’s piling project is now complete!
Commencing in October 2018, more than 5300 piles have gone into the ground thanks to Hawkins and their sub-contractor CLL in what was New Zealand’s largest building piling contract.
The piles range from 10 to 24 metres in depth, and a staggering 32,000 cubic metres of concrete was poured onsite. To put that in perspective, that’s 72km of concrete piling!
The completion of the piling project means the entire site is now working above-ground. Expect to see a lot more above-ground progress on both the Elizabeth Street and First Avenue sides of the development from now on.
Hats off to the team for completing such a huge task on schedule!
