Countdown Pioneer Highway

Construction has begun on the new Countdown supermarket and retail tenancies in Palmerston North.

This is a challenging site as the location is in a highly seismic zone with liquefiable ground and on a flood plain.  Delivered by Letica Lum and Gilbert Han, the main structure is designed to be raised above the flood plain and the loading dock slab is designed as suspended.  Foundation work has begun with our solution for the ground conditions comprising timber driven piles with RC pilecaps and ground beams, with tension anchorages embedded into some of the piles.

We are working with Watts & Hughes delivering this project for Woolworths New Zealand.

Milford Development

110 Milford Development is under Construction!
Foundations are progressing at pace for this new 6 storey residential block of high end apartments in Milford. Structus designed an innovative UC soldier pile temporary wall with road plates, that has saved space, time and cost. Another key aspect to create efficiency in the program and cost savings is an efficient raft slab foundation, instead of traditional bored piles. We are excited to see the progression of this project and looking forward to continuing to with the team on site from Waide Construction.
Structus provided full structural design and Revit documentation for this project, as well as construction monitoring services.
