Mount Maunganui-based HEB Construction is leading the Marine Precinct primary works. HEB is one of the leading civil construction companies in New Zealand, and is very experienced in marine infrastructure, having worked on marinas and ports around the country, including the extension of Tauranga’s own port in 2013.
HEB will deliver the 6,300 square metre heavy-duty hardstand (pavement), a new concrete wharf, a lifting bay complete with runways for the vessel hoist, seawall armour rock protection, access roads and other core infrastructure services to the new lots. HEB took over the site early October 2016.
Based on current construction timeframes, assuming no significant weather-related delays, construction would be completed in August 2017. The vessel-hoist would be delivered at the same time, prior to being assembled and tested on-site. Opening of the precinct is planned for the end of 2017.
