Local builders win Civic Contract

Local builders win Civic Contract

Waitakere builders Canam Construction have won the construction contract to build the Civic Centre in the heart of Henderson.

The local company will start preparing piling rigs from October 26, at the former Carter Holt Harvey tissue factory site in Henderson Valley Road.

Mayor Bob Harvey says he is delighted a local company has been awarded the contract to build the environmentally-leading edge design created by Architectus-Athfield.

“Canam is a logical choice for Waitakere Central. This company has a real stake in our city, and is part of the momentum developing in Waitakere. Hundreds of people will be employed during this, the first step in consolidating Waitakere City’s strong city centre,” he says.

The Civic Centre and its associated administration building are part of an overall project (linked by airbridge to the new transport hub) collectively known as Waitakere Central. This is part of a plan of action to deliver a strong local economy radiating from the CBD at Henderson, the geographic and historic heart of Waitakere.

The Trusts’ Stadium at Central Park Drive was recently completed by Canam Construction. The company undertakes projects throughout New Zealand, including Auckland University Library, ANZ refurbishment and Philips’ Aquatic Centre.

General Manager Loukas Petrou says his company has a proven track record of “competence in organising complex procedures.” Director Nick Page affirms that the six-storey administration building and the three-storey Civic Centre will be finished by April 2006. “Right now, we are focusing on the management of the process, on team work and the rapport with the architects and our client, Waitakere City Council.”
