Project Overviewx

To improve flood security in Hokitika, the Westland District Council initiated improvements to its stormwater infrastructure by increasing the capacity of the network in the Town Belt East area.

Specialist Work Required: Installation of two lines of 350m in length each requiring 1200mm concrete pressure pipeline with 6 x 2.3m over-sized concrete manholes at 25t per unit!
Depth of excavation of up to 5.5m pushing us into ground water made de-watering a daily battle throughout the final stages of contract. The pipeline route crossed many obstacles including the live services to the Westland Dairy Factory in full operation, this included unknown services that we collaborated with the engineer to redesign and continue to install pipeline. During the course of this project we faced many challenges however with a solution-based work ethic these challenges were overcome without delaying production.

Client Feedback: While undertaking the Town Belt East Pipeline Upgrade project I found Tru- Line’s service to be –

  • Contract focussed – Responsive to requests, information requirements & Quality assurance deliverables.
  • Service driven – Due to works location there was a high priority on working with major industry & members of the public.
  • Financially practical – Works were completed on time and within budgetary allocations. Additional work variations negotiated with integrity & openness.

As well as the above, Tru-Line tackled the very difficult site conditions and technical issues with skill and the ability to provide sensible solutions to complicated construction requirements.
