I believe by telling our real life stories and sharing our lessons we all benefit.

No question that it has been a tough 2020 for many businesses and people including the Urban Solutions team. Along with spring's arrival, green shoots are here so we shared our story of how we navigated though the tough times with the Icehouse, our new BFs. Things are looking rosy again with a search for a talented senior civil engineers and designer.

We go to great heights to deliver positive community-transforming infrastructure - both figuratively and literally!

Funded by the Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board, the recently completed Norana Path provides a safe walking and cycling route that connects existing reserves through a mangrove estuary which was previously inaccessible to pedestrians. The A-Z of this project, however, was not straight forward and required some over-and-above dedication.

The construction needed to be robust, innovative and low impact on the marine environment. A 20 Tonne amphibious excavator was used to install the boardwalk and bridge piles throughout the mangroves. Its large floating pontoons allowed for working in all tide conditions and it made minimal disturbance to the seabed. To construct the bridge that crosses the Mangere inlet, a helicopter was used to transport the 14m long glulam beams into position.

The path can now safely be used by local residents for walking & cycling, and aids access to the natural surrounding environment.

Check out our new video. Just before the Covid crisis, Urban Solutions together with Auckland Council, iwi, Citycare and the Friends of Kirks Bush re-opened the new upgraded track and boardwalk complete with Kauri hygiene stations. This outstanding green oasis in suburban Papakura was opened just in time as it was an essential public amenity for the locals' wellbeing during the Covid lockdown. It showcases best practice for how public access to urban kauri tracks can be managed.

Many locals discovered their neighborhood tracks and paths for the first time. It was interesting that local paths across New Zealand became an essential service to community wellbeing and individual freedom.

During Covid, the Kauri Dieback Programme continued to move forward providing a clear plan to re-open reserve tracks that have been closed. Our remote working practices have allowed for the Urban Solutions' design team to continue at full pace, ensuring that when the level restrictions eased we were shovel ready.
