Master Builders 40 Years Industry Expertise

Dunedin - Milton Prison

This project was carried out under a Collaborative Working Arrangement under the management of Hawkins Construction. ABL were one of 7 builders on site and we carried out 3 of the Cell Blocks. ABL was the first builder on site and the last to leave, carrying out the largest amount of the building work of the builders involved.

The cell blocks were predominantly of concrete and steel construction with a high level of services. Meeting the programme and budget was of critical importance with the programme being adhered to and the overall project being adhered to, but with ABL providing a saving to budget of just on $1M, again by far the best performing of the building contractors on site.
