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!
Bridge It New Zealand in conjunction with Tiaki were awarded the contract from Gisborne District Council to replace the bridge at Haigs Road in Gisborne The new bridge has now been completed and increased the load capacity from one tonne to 44 tonnes!

Sometimes when we do geotechnical work, we can use smaller measurement tools to provide samples for an analysis of a site. But, when a project calls for samples of a larger nature, we bring in the big toys, and in this instance, a Drill Rig.. This machine can determine soil stability of the site and collect rock and soil samples that we can send off for analysis to see if the ground is suitable for whatever the client is proposing to do.
The photo below provides a bit of perspective as to the size of the rig in relation to our Tiaki SUV.
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?
Today, Cyclone Debbie has paid Tauranga a visit after having a spell in Australia, but unfortunately she has underestimated the commitment that our Geotechnical Team, Matt and Ryan have when it comes to getting the job done.
So in the pouring rain, they are completing the necessary work required to get this project underway.
Nice one guys - that's real commitment!
