Civil - Tapuwae Way, Mangere Bridge

Due to Auckland’s shortage of affordable housing, council have been working hard and fast to free up available parcels of land for quick turnaround residential developments; whilst also adhering to strict council guidelines and consent criteria.  As an established multi-discipline engineering practise, EDC has worked closely and effectively with council over many years and as a result, EDC was positioned perfectly to assist with the Kirkbride development.


Designated as a Special Housing Area in order to be fast-tracked for residential development, this section has a flat gradient and is registered as a partial flood plain. This provided a number of drainage and roading design challenges that required effective solutions that also satisfied council requirements. EDC moved quickly to carry out hydraulic analysis and responded with well-considered and aesthetically pleasing stormwater mitigation and earth work designs that included large retained open channels. The specific design was also incorporated for rain gardens, providing a “green” water quality solution for road run-off.


Under the one roof, EDC were able to provide geotech, civil and some structural engineering across the Kirkbride project including full design, consenting and construction supervision.
