Base have been working with the landowner and the building developer for over 4 years in transforming the steep undulating site into a terraced 17 lot subdivision above Battery Hill, Frankton Road. Suitable for high quality apartment construction.
The site itself and its geology made it challenging for earthworks and the protection for those below.
Much of the subdivision development & infrastructure construction was concurrent with apartments being built which created access and safety challenges with many trades & subcontractors also working within the site.
- The project has had three phases with the initial being mainly earthworks for the construction of a new site access road.
- Extensive earthworks, roading, reticulated & utility services for 17 lot multi unit apartments on steep rocky site
- 600m – 300mm PE water line, drainage works on S.H. 6A & thrust bores under

Health & Safety
No Base incidents – intensive vehicle plant & machinery interaction, and rock fall potential
Base Contracting & Fulton Hogan bid together initially for the first stage of the development. Rates were then negotiated again with the clients to continue to construct stage 2 and potentially stage 3 (2016)
