Awakeri Wetlands Stage 1A

$15.0 million Auckland City Council


Auckland Council  :  $15.0 million 

The Awakeri Wetlands Project is a signature project, creating healthy and connected waterways, shared cycleways and pathways and open green spaces to support restored natural habitats. Stage 1A comprises a new 2.3km long stormwater channel to improve flood-prone areas in Takanini and enable more homes to be built. The channel forms a natural stream and wetland surrounded by public recreation areas. It will include boardwalks and shared cycle and pathways. In line with Council’s goal to apply environmentally sensitive solutions to this project, we set our own goal on this project to not only meet regulatory compliance, but also to go beyond the requirements by setting our own standards of quality.

McKenzie & Parma are privileged to construct this environmental development for our local Takanini community
