New Farmer’s Building

Project Info

RPC has been involved in the redevelopment of the Farmers building in downtown Tauranga. We completed an initial site survey including a detailed survey of the buried services in the area.
The development includes two stories of stores and a further nine stories of apartments above. RPC has been completing precise monitoring surveys of positions around the site, and deflection monitoring of the foundations as excavations are undertaken.

We are currently setting out grid-lines for the 1600+ piles and we are also completing the as-built survey work on the hold-down bolts.

We will keep you informed as this project is planned to continue for another two years.

Since production started to August 2019:

• 58,000 m3 of muck have been removed from site.

• 20,000 m3 of concrete has been pumped into the ground

• 44,000 l/m of piles have been installed.

• On average 50 trucks attend site daily.
