Infrastructure Assessment


When planning a development it is critical to establish the location and condition of existing services and to assess the area for future infrastructure needs. Our team uses all available information and the latest equipment to locate and assess services and provide you with a feasibility report. You can then make quality decisions regarding your planned development.

  • Geotechnical suitability
  • Possible soil contamination
  • Existing water supply
  • Existing waste water reticulation
  • Existing storm water system

Case Studies

Tamaki Regeneration Ltd Hinaki Redevelopment

The Hinaki Regeneration project is a re-development of 56 existing dwellings. 13 superlots will be created for future development of approximately 255 terraced dwellings and apartments. This project is part of the wider Tamaki regeneration programme to replace 2,500 social houses with 7,500 social, affordable and private market houses over the next 10-15 years.

CKL completed an initial infrastructure assessment to assist Tamaki Regeneration Ltd assess the future development potential for the site and allow them to programme when this development may be integrated in to their wider development programme. This included assessing the potential earthworks, roading, stormwater, wastewater, water supply and utility provisions required to develop the site whilst also identifying early on any opportunities or constraints that will inform the future design.

We have since been further engaged to provide civil engineering and surveying services as part of the wider project team. CKL provided innovative and cost effective design solutions to align with the wishes of the community, including designing around sacred trees to ensure the placenta buried beneath are preserved for the community. We also established potential superlot purchaser requirements in advance, so infrastructure is provided in the most flexible location whilst ensuring re-work of newly constructed surfaces is eliminated or minimised for future utility and service connections.

Rotokauri Rise

The picturesque Rotokauri Rise subdivision is an outstanding 10-stage residential development in one of the regions largest and most significant residential 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. Stages three to five of the development were delivered to title in March 2018, with over 130 lots available for sale.

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. The CKL team revised designs and stormwater management plans to accommodate the new requirements for the catchment area in order to meet development deadlines.

The presence of a natural heritage park on the southern boundary of the development set the tone for the design and character of the Rotokauri development. Soft-engineered solutions were employed to create an appealing and sympathetic response to the established design objectives.

CKL is working towards the delivery of stage six; the roading corridor to Te Rapa. Beyond that, 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.
