Tiaki Engineering Consultants have provided geotechnical assessment, civil design, earthworks consenting, and earthworks monitoring and completion reporting for a new 2-lot industrial subdivision and industrial warehouse at Omokoroa.
At 6am this morning, the crane was ready in place, and the geodesic roof which was shipped to site in pieces and connected together in the base of the newly finished reservoir at Joyce Road, was to be raised and positioned into place, ready for connecting to the top of the tank. As with any major point in a project, several members of the team from Tiaki were at site to oversee this process. I am happy to announce that this was a success! Check out the video below the photos to get a perspective of the size of the crane lifting the roof - impressive!
Royal Auckland Golf Club were in need of two new pedestrian bridges for their prestigious golf course. Tiaki Engineering Consultants and Bridge It worked closely in proposing and implementing an innovative idea of employing Composite Fibre Technology (CFT) to construct the up to 60m long bridges. Due to its light weight and simple connections, the material allowed for an easier installation process in comparison to other construction materials (timber, concrete or steel). This design enabled the bridge to be aesthetically pleasing (as per picture below), highly durable and cost effective for the client.
The Reservoir project at Joyce Road is really moving along, now and we thought that you would like to take a look at some more updated photos to see the progress.
The new reservoir that is being constructed at Joyce Road is really starting to take shape. The perfect conditions today allowed us to take some drone pictures of the site.
Pretty spectacular don't you think?
Tiaki ECL were commissioned in March 2018 to investigate the site of a new bridge near Pirongia, Southern Waikato over the Moakurarua Stream. The upstream catchment and flood clearance constraints required a 38m single span structure. A composite concrete deck/steel beam solution was chosen as the most appropriate solution to meet the client’s needs. After working through all of the legal constraints, the fabrication is now underway at the Bridge It NZ yard in Mt Maunganui. After galvanising (zinc thermal spray), the steel components will be transported to site for assembly and lifted into place using a 300t mobile crane. Paul and Jeandre are seen inspecting the main beams undergoing manufacture.
