Auckland International Airport
RDT Pacific provided Project Management services for the design and construction of this recently completed landmark development. The site is prominent, on the corner of George Bolt Memorial Drive and The Landing, and from the outset it was important to AIAL that the design and construction process met their expectations, the expectations of the tenant and of the wider public.
The development consists of a new 7,620m2 warehouse, 3,245m2 regulated coldstore and 1,535m2 of office space across two levels, including the associated fit out works, external works and landscaping.
Key challenges on this project that required close management to ensure a successful outcome were:
- The pitched eastern façade with sloping windows and associated weathertightness design
- Complexities of the tenant fit out and enhancements to the coldstore and the interface of these with the base build
- The high public profile of the site
The Hellmann Project was recognised with a Silver Award at the 2016 New Zealand Commercial Project Awards and an Award of Merit at the 2016 Property Council New Zealand Awards.
“RDT have provided project management services to Auckland Airport including providing project management services to the Hellmann Worldwide Logistics project that is situated in the Landing Business Park. This was a high profile project with a high level of complexity. RDT played a key role in managing this project, most notably through the effective management of multiple stakeholders, which resulted in a very challenging project being delivered very effectively and on programme”.
