Levin Wastewater Treatment Plant

Horowhenua District Council’s aim:

  • To relocate the wastewater treatment plant away from the lake into a man-made storage lake.

What we did:

Kawerau Geothermal Power Station

In 2006 Mighty River Power commissioned a NZ$300 million geothermal power station at Kawerau as part of its strategy to meet the government’s objective of achieving 90% renewable electricity by 2025. This was the largest geothermal project in New Zealand for more than 20 years.

Hawkins Infrastructure was the ‘onshore partner’ for a consortium which included Sumitomo Corporation and Fuji Electric Systems to turn Mighty River Power’s vision into reality.

Hobsonville Point Schools

Following a robust tender process, Learning Infrastructure Partners (LIP) a consortium of Hawkins Group, ASC Architects, Perumal Pedavoli Architects, Holmes Consulting Group, AECOM, Programmed Facility Management and the Public Infrastructure Partners Fund (PIP Fund), were awarded the contract. Finance was provided by Westpac and the PIP Fund.


Newmarket Rail Station

ONTRACK and Auckland Regional Transport Authority’s (ARTA) aims:

Daldy-Halsey Streetscapes

Wynyard Quarter comprises approximately 37 hectares of land and almost three kilometres of coastal frontage. Daldy and Halsey Streets are two of the three key north-south connections in Wynyard Quarter.

Waterfront Auckland engaged Hawkins to revitalise these streets.


Waterfront Auckland’s goal:

AMI Stadium

Christchurch Stadium Trust’s aim:

  • To build a cost effective, temporary stadium, as quickly as possible, to the highest possible safety standards, with great atmosphere and sightlines, and make it feel as though it was not yet another temporary solution.

What we did:

Christchurch International Airport

Christchurch International Airport Limited’s (CIAL) Aim:

CIAL wished to provide a facility where both international and domestic passengers could be processed in the same area. It was decided at an early stage that the new terminal would be built on the site of the old one and that construction would take place while the airport remained fully open.

What we did:

Christchurch Airport Control Tower

Airways New Zealand’s objectives:

  • To construct a new control tower to replace the old one and to provide Airways New Zealand with extended views of the runways.

What we did:

We built the 45 metre high, $6 million Christchurch airport control tower in an extremely tight timeframe. Situated in a constantly busy and restrictive airport environment, the new control tower was procured under a design and build tender based on a performance specification.

Auckland Museum Grand Atrium

Since moving to its current location in 1929 Auckland War Memorial Museum had seen one addition in the late 1950s, when an administration annexe with a large semi-circular courtyard was added to the southern rear. At Christmas 1999, the first stage of the Museum’s redevelopment was completed; a five-year restoration of its landmark heritage building, introduction of new building services and replacement of 9000m² of natural history, cultural history and war memorial exhibits.
