Project: Cliff Road, Torbay
Date: Oct 2015
Client: Private Client
This project involved the remediation of a large cliff top slip spanning a property in Auckland’s Torbay.
Earth Stability were approached to provide a full design and build solution including; the initial consultation and site investigation, a detailed design, obtaining the necessary consents, completing all works onsite and obtaining a code of compliance on completion of the works.
The project required the installation of 250m2 of Maccaferri Macmat R erosion matting and rock fall mesh secured with 54 No. drilled and grouted galvanised + epoxy coated ground anchors.
The site was located within the coastal foreshore yard and was zoned a site of ‘geological significance’ under the newly proposed Auckland unitary plan. The site also shared its border with a regional park and a fishing reserve. As a consequence of these factors, a carefully planned methodology was designed which ensured zero damage to the highly sensitive environment and which exceeded all Council requirements for working within each of the zones.
In addition, all works were completed over the peak of summer. Consequently a requirement of the project was that it was completed with zero delays and zero disruption to the large volumes of public visiting Long Bay and its surrounding beaches. These requirements were successfully met. Work was completed on time and to budget.
Earth Stability was awarded the '2015 Hynds Construction Award Category A', for its work on this project.
