Base Civil have been involved in a variety of civil engineering projects throughout the central North Island. Here are a few examples:
Foster Construction: Waipa Networks site development
Base Civil was chosen for this project to avoid dealing with multiple sub-contractors. Our involvement covered all site works and drainage, including storm-water and sewer installation, building pad excavation, backfill and compaction, yard and building pad preparation and carpark construction and surfacing.
Waikato District Council: kerb and channel upgrades
This project involved the installation of 1,000 metres of kerbing at sites in Ngaruawahia, Glen Massey and Te Kauwhata, including excavation, drainage, pavement construction, surfacing, lighting, road marking, signage and street furniture. As the contract progressed, council offered Base Civil additional works in Raglan. We received excellent feedback from local business owners and local councillor.
Transfield Services: SH1 Cambridge roundabout upgrade
Contracted two weeks before the 2010 Christmas break, Base Civil completely removed the existing roundabout and islands to allow for an adjusted roading layout. Due to the significant highway traffic, all work was carried out over six consecutive nights, from 7.30pm to 7.30am. The roadway was fully completed in time for the holiday traffic.
Te Kura Kaupapa Maori O Bernard Fergusson
A new carpark to be constructed during the holiday period outside of school operating hours. During setout, Base Civil noted levels and layout did not quite fit the site. We offered solutions and carried out the works on time. At the completion walkover the client noted our professional approach.
Carlyon Civil Construction: Chevron Kinleith truckstop installation
Base Civil carried out all site works on this fuel stop to cater for forestry trucks. The site required stripping, earthworks, drainage installation, API separator installation, ducting for services, pavement base construction, preparation and pouring of a 1,200 square metre reinforced forecourt and tank foundations and reinstatement of adjoining roadway. The installation was completed ahead of schedule.
Porrit Sands: sand quarry consent works
Porrit Sands between Cambridge and Hamilton operate a sand quarry and as part of consent conditions were required to carry out significant roading improvements. Base Civil liaised with stakeholders to gain all relevant approvals. Works included a widening and improvement to the quarry entrance intersection improvements and a 600 metre truck acceleration lane on SH1, along with a right turn bay. Works were completed ahead of agreed timeframes.
Aspect Environmental Lining: Rangitoto landfill lining
Aspect carry out landfill lining work for many councils around New Zealand. Base Civil were subcontracted for the leachate drainage work at the base of a landfill extension. This work involved the installation of specialised manholes at the main outlet of the landfill compartment, and laying and welding of specialised PE leachate pipework along the floor of the Rangitoto Landfill.
