The two essential focuses and achievements of this project were:
• Research into the mix design and developing the construction methodology of the permeable concrete footpath – this was achieved through multiple lay-down trials as well as
building and developing tools and equipment to aid in the construction of the permeable concrete path. A smooth, permeable concrete cycleway, well in excess of the
permeability requirement (a flow rate of 100L of water per square metre of footpath per minute) was constructed.
• Environmental management associated with construction in an environmentally sensitive area next to a stream and wetland – this was achieved through multiple perfect scores
and no non-compliance scores in the weekly environmental audits carried out by Auckland Regional Council.
These achievements demonstrated a keen interest and willingness to deliver the project to a high standard while at the same time developing a strong working relationship with the Client.
