Te Kura O Take Kārara
SouthRoads were awarded the underground services and civil works package for the new Wanaka South Primary School within the Three Parks development. SouthRoads were a main subcontractor on-site for SouthBase Construction, who was awarded the contract to construct the new school, named Te Kura O Take Kārara, for the Ministry of Education.
SouthRoads made a start on-site at the end of May 2019 and work was expected to continue through to completion in early December 2019, ready for the children to arrive at their new school in February 2020. This exciting project involved over 3,300m of underground service installation (foul sewer, stormwater, water, power and telecommunications ducting), 900m of concrete kerbing and dish channel and approximately 11,000m² of pavement construction and asphalt surfacing. To date, the work has been undertaken by SouthRoads Central Lakes staff with some much-appreciated assistance from the Dunedin drainage team.
