Invercargill - Rakiura Heritage Centre

ABL were brought onboard early as the preferred contractor.

Initial pricing had the project $1m over budget. ABL
worked with the design team and offered a number of solutions where cost savings could be made managing
to bring the project back within budget without compromising he design brief or the level of quality.

The onsite build involved significant logistical challenges as all plant equipment and 300 tonnes of material that
was required had to be shipped to Stewart Island for our team to complete the project.

This included a specialist barge for the 10m long piles, the piling rig and Manitou. Offsite planning and
coordination with subcontractors and material suppliers ensured all materials were delivered early which meant
no delays were encountered.

A challenging new build & internal fitout in an remote location, thorough planning, logistical management and
an unwavering commitment from the Onsite and Offsite teams the ABL contract works was completed to a high
level of quality and ahead of programme.
