Reliable infrastructure relies on comprehensive planning, quality construction, and precise maintenance. Our highly-experienced team are capable of overseeing every aspect of civil infrastructure and earthworks projects, including storm water basins, pavement construction and guard rail installation. By reverse engineering projects we can make accurate predictions regarding cost, viability and time, and can formulate a plan to manage the often-complex task of dealing with planning departments and regulatory authorities. As a result, we’re consistently able to reduce total project costs, avoid lengthy delays, and produce solutions that fit their purpose and will stand the test of time.

Projects using Earthworks and Civil Infrastructure

Rangiora Aeration Basin

The Contract Works involved the construction of a new earth wastewater treatment aeration basin at the Rangiora Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The site was an active wastewater treatment plant and the contract works were carried out at the same time as other significant construction works to construct a new inlet pump station and screening channel.

Existing pipelines had to be protected and remain live throughout the period of the contract works. Temporary bypassing pumping and pipework was required to maintain a live network/plant.

Darfield Skatepark Completed Work

SDC Skate Park Upgrades

Hunter Civil constructed extensions to the Leeston and Darfield skateparks for the Selwyn District Council at the request of the community. Both skate parks included a significant amount of flat areas, and several features including quarter pipes, wedges, hubbas and skateable seats. The project was carried out by an experienced crew in 8 weeks. It was delivered on time, budget and exceeded the client's expectations.

Radcliffe Culvert Extension

This project involved the extension of the existing historical culvert while working around live traffic and preserving a historical arch. One of the biggest challenges to this was carrying out work with heavy plant, while maintaining a live road as this was the only heavy haulage route in and out of Lyttleton.

Moore St Pump Station

A new wastewater pump station was constructed in Kaiapoi. The project involved a 5.8m deep, 2.5m wetwell construction in a high water table environment within the Kaiapoi Red Zone. The construction method included an 8m deep sheetpiled cofferdam, wellpoint dewatering, PE pipe welding laying. All of this was done while working around existing services.
Ouruhia Radio Mast

Ouruhia Radio Mast Foundation Remediation

Following the September and February Canterbury Earthquakes, the 137m high radio mast foundations settled significantly and rotated. This was a consequence of lateral ground spreading and liquefaction.  The remedial work required stabilisation of the 48 tonne mast and re-tensioning of the guy rope system.

DoC's Fox Glacier Splash Ford Replacement

This project was undertaken within the Westland National Park, where specific requirements catering for both variable weather conditions, and risk management of flash flooding and rock-falls were put in place.

Hunter Civil

Mount Cook Sewage Treatment Pond Stage 2

This contract was undertaken by Hunter Civil during winter at the Mt Cook/Aoraki village. Weather conditions (particularly the heavy snow and constant freeze/thaw conditions) made this job very challenging at times. A large dumping of snow mid-way through the project added to the complexity and challenges we faced on the ground.
