The picturesque Rotokauri Rise subdivision is an outstanding 10-stage residential development in one of the region’s largest and most significant rural growth cells. It will yield nearly 900 sections and cater for the expanding population within the ‘golden triangle’ and is being delivered for Rotokauri Developments Ltd by CKL.

The development will include a mix of house and land packages or land only lots, three wetland areas, a playpark, and a retail centre. The residential areas will incorporate a mixture of housing, with larger sections on the ridgelines and increasing density toward the urban centre.

As a key development partner, CKL has been involved in the development of Rotokauri Rise from the start, transforming the bare land to urban lots with all the required services including power, telecommunications, water, wastewater, and roading.

CKL has been heavily involved in the preparation of submissions to the Proposed District Plan, Hamilton City Council’s long-term plan, and Development Contribution Policy. Rotokauri Rise was the first development to be delivered to Hamilton Council’s new Integrated Catchment Management Plan (ICMP). The CKL team revised designs and stormwater management plans to accommodate the new requirements for the catchment area in order to meet development deadlines. This included the design and build of wetland ponds and upstream raingardens to treat run off before release into Lake Rotokauri.

Soft-engineered solutions were employed to create an appealing and sympathetic response to the established design objectives.

CKL is working on the delivery of stage six; the roading corridor to Te Rapa, linking Taiatea Drive to the Te Wetini Drive roundabout. Works include stormwater and ecological solutions to rehabilitate an existing pond and the addition of two pump stations to future proof the residential development.

Stages seven and eight incorporate an additional 200 lots of character, residential and medium density housing in an elevated area. This will bring its own challenges as many of these sites are on steeper topography and the ridgeline is more pronounced.

CKL is currently providing professional services for environment and subdivision consents, civil engineering design and contract administration, and all aspects of land surveying. Through an holistic approach to the planning, design, development and construction of Rotokauri Rise, CKL is excited to bring future stages to title.
