TAMAKI SHARED PATH AND DUNKIRK SEAWALL
HEB Construction worked conjointly on the Tamaki Path (shared walkway) while also building the Dunkirk seawall below the pathway area from April 2018 to May 2019.
The Tamaki Shared Path project was identified as a priority connection in the Maungakiekei-Tamaki Local Board's adopted Greenways Plan. The Tamaki Shared Path has developed a contiguous 10km Greenway path from Wai-o-taiki Reserve through to Panmure Wharf, which runs through a range of environments including coastal edge reserves, native bush, mown grass, grazed paddocks and recreational areas.
The Tamaki Path contributes positively to the cycling/walking network, linking to the city centre. The Greenway provides recreational opportunities at the reserves and improved accessibility to the coastal edge.
We also worked with the Tamaki Jobs and Skills Hub to support their goal of creating local jobs for the community.
The collaboration between the HUB and HEB proved mutually beneficial and resulted in nine apprentices from two of HEB's subcontractors signing onto construction apprenticeships. Not only is our collaboration with the HUB imperative to creating job opportunities, it also enabled and sustains employment through up-skilling.
