Taurarua – Judges Bay
Taurarua, Judges Bay is located near the Parnell Rose Gardens, the Parnell Baths and Tamaki Drive in Auckland.
Stage 1 of the project included re-sanding the beach and dredging the lagoon to remove around 20,000m3 of sediment.
Stage 2 comprised low-impact solutions to resolve the contamination issues and more obvious beautification and activity-promoting devices.
The project included working with the existing land contours to minimise excavation. An effective stormwater treatment solution was created. A central bayside plaza and new amenity block were built, providing seating and facilities for events.
The original changing facilities at the western end were demolished and used as fill behind large, terraced steps that provide a vantage point over the lagoon.
A new set of stairs was built to access Martyn Fields Reserve along with new boardwalk Pontoons and a new pier constructed from marine-grade materials.
RDT Pacific provided Cost Management/Quantity Surveying and Project Management services for the project which was completed on time and within budget.
