RDT Pacific provided both Project Management and Cost Management/Quantity Surveying services for the construction of this new library. The 1200m2 facility was constructed alongside a popular existing recreation/community facility within a large Council park.

By incorporating the library into the existing community centre, RDT Pacific was able to assist in rectifying some old compliance issues with the existing community centre and provide an opportunity for a new entrance to the complex. A series of open public spaces were designed for the southern and eastern flanks as well as a connection to the nearby Clendon Shopping Centre.

Local artists brought into the design process integrated their designs into the exterior as evidence of Clendon’s connection to the Manukau Harbour into the building aesthetic.

Funding for the project came from many separate sources; this required precise and efficient cost management and reporting to enable quick decision making by the various stakeholders. Quick cost reporting and decision making were vital to ensure the construction team was able to meet the tight deadline necessitated by the termination of the lease on the old library located in the adjacent shopping centre.

“This project is a tremendous success and Manukau City Council would like to acknowledge the project team’s tremendous efforts”

Craig Harvett, Manukau City Council
