The HCC Cemetery upgrade included excavation for new roadways, drainage installations for this and future extensions of the cemetery, water reticulation upgrades and approx. 400m of full new road construction. Drainage extended over 500m with new manholes lines up to 450mm diameter out to a new gully outlet.

The roading upgrade had to be completed in a sensitive environment as adjacent areas were still holding services throughout the works. Our crews shutdown and had smoko breaks to ensure cemetery users were not inconvenienced by noise or activities during those times.

The work was completed well within the contract timeframes with very satisfied council and cemetery staff.

During initial digout work it was identified that the top pavement layer from a previous overlay was failing meaning the entire top basecourse layer needed to be removed and replaced. Base Civil Limited came up new smart solutions, completed a full survey and long section design, scheduled new quantities and carried out the work which was not extensively more expensive than the tendered price but a far superior solution with more works. This was all completed short of the contract period and sealed before the Christmas break which was an excellent outcome of all parties and road users.

Long & Roto Streets Upgrade

Client:
Waikato District Council
Location:
Various Waikato District
Original Contract Period:
9 Weeks

9 Weeks, Completion – August 11 (extended-additional work/wet days)

Work completed under this contract included:

  • Earthworks
  • Drainage – Extensive stormwater
  • Pavement Construction
  • Kerbing and Footpaths
  • Entranceway Construction
  • Surfacing – Chipseal

The contract was for two urban upgrades. They both involved stormwater, kerbing, footpaths, entranceways and pavement construction and surfacing.

Roto St

Roto Street in Te Kauwhata was approx. 200m of roadway and an intersection. Drainage was installed with new catchpits before new kerbing and footpaths were installed. The pavement was then constructed and surfaced. The job went well and the residents were very happy with the outcome in terms of both quality and time.

This was a challenging contract which very poor weather made more difficult. The street was very steep and involved over 250m of stormwater lines (300 & 375mm), manholes etc at over 2.0m deep. The road then required kerbing to be installed on both sides, footpaths, large entranceways due to set back boundaries then full pavement and surfacing. There were many old and hidden services which required relocation and property drainage connections which needed to be hooked into the network.  The job was under designed and therefore the tender budget was exceeded by some $80,000 but residents on the street all commented about the quality, the excellent staff and communication and superb outcome.
