The Urban Solutions Coastal team were pleased to attend the NZ Coastal Society Conference 2019 in Invercargill and sponsor the Young Professionals Breakfast which saw huge engagement among young professionals entering the coastal community.

Our very own Laura Robichaux, Coastal Engineer, presented at the conference, showcasing some of her PhD research and applications of the MfE Coastal Guidance. Her studies explore the development of a framework that seeks to improve project implementation processes and aims to understand what happens at a project’s conceptualization, engagement and execution phases that can either lead to successful project implementation or project abandonment.

ACTIVE TRANSPORT | LOTUS WALKWAY
A devastating slip in 2017 rendered the walkway unusable. Unique challenges were created by working on the side of a cliff face, however the team did an exceptional job and the walkway has now been reopened for the community to enjoy again.

COASTAL | SANDSPIT RESERVE UPGRADE
It’s always nice to hear from our clients: “The Sandspit Reserve and Beach Upgrade project has been an exemplary success. Urban Solutions has provided a full scope of services as the Engineer to Contract, which included design, tender and construction management as per NZS3910. They have managed the project delivery in an efficient manner, and addressed all the issues in a timely manner which resulted in great quality outcomes. Not only were their staff professional and well-accomplished, but also they dealt with all matters diligently and thoroughly which had a great impact on the project success. I would certainly recommend Urban Solutions for similar projects, and quite confident they will maintain their high level of services offered to future clients.” - Mohamed Eltayeb, Project Manager, Auckland Council.
