Base contracted by SouthRoads undertook the initial earthworks and the reticulated service work for the subdivision. Base completed the cut and fill of the playground at the bottom of the subdivision, a major project which required huge amount of material and machinery.
Extensive earthworks were required to cut in the main road to the subdivision and the other roads around the area. Drilling and blasting was required in areas of hard rock.
Base were contracted to install a 1 km PE water line comprised of a 280 high pressure rising main and a 250m falling main. The water main was put together with Electrofusion couplers . Installing the waterline in the steep terrain was a real challenge to the team though Murray Forward ran this part of the project and shared his knowledge with younger members of the drainage team.
The Base team also completed a retaining wall made of over 300 Gabion baskets.
The subdivision has magnificent views over Lake Wakatipu to the Remarkables. It was the view that kept our team in full spirits working through the hard winter months.
