Waiparuru Hall Development Temporary Works, Auckland CBD

We provide timely engineering solutions for temporary works during construction. We work closely with contractors to ensure the right solution is implemented
The BMC team carried out the temporary works design, detailing & construction monitoring of the Tower Cranes and Hoists to enable works at this demanding narrow and steep site on the fringe of Auckland’s CBD.

The solution for the site involved two Potain luffing jib tower cranes – one of which, the MR295, being capable of up to 16 t lifts with a 60 m jib length. The challenging site meant the crane foundations were supported on 12 screwpiles to 23 m deep. Avoiding buried services and retaining wall clashes involved rapid support during construction to adapt to the conditions.
BMC also provided design for the three ‘man-hoists’ (construction elevators or colloquially ‘Alimaks’) for further materials handling and access. Locating them adjacent to retaining walls and on suspended slabs required careful back-propping and surcharge loading checks. Smart design of the wall ties in collaboration with the contractor also allowed for construction to proceed without the hoist ties getting in the way.
