Client: Kāinga Ora
Complete: June 2021
Project Type: Infrastructure
Our role: Project Manager & Infrastructure Manager
Kāinga Ora is responsible for delivering large scale developments, including affordable and market housing, as well as a complex build programme on brownfield sites that are changing communities across New Zealand. As part of the Kāinga Ora Northcote Development, Kāinga Ora are replacing 300 existing state houses and delivering more than 1,650 warm, dry, quiet houses in their place.
Part of this development is to provide improved community amenities, in this case a new pocket park for the younger children to play in and for families to come together in. This park included a new shelter, BBQ facilities, mini-trampolines, a swing, balance balls and a lovely space for kids to run around and kick a ball on.
TOBA Projects are an integral part of the Kāinga Ora Project Management team since the Alliance’s inception in 2019, and on this project have provided a full suite of Client-side Project Management and Infrastructure Management services to Kāinga Ora from design, Alliance TOC (Target Outturn Cost) development, Resource Consent and EPA lodgement, and construction and closeout phases.
Mana-Whenua were also intimately involved and Māori carvings were included within the design on fence posts, shelter posts and etched into the concrete.
The project was delivered to an exceptionally high standard by Piritahi. It was a fun project all around, for all the “big-kids” within all of us.
