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; thus it was essential to Auckland International Airport that the design and construction process met their expectations, those of the tenant and the wider public.
The development consists of a new 7,620m2 warehouse, 3,245m2 regulated cold store and 1,535m2 of office space across two levels, including the associated fitout 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 fitout and enhancements to the cold store and the interface of these with the base build
- The high public profile of the site
“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”.
