After a short 32 months, the Wynyard Edge Alliance is proud to announce that we have completed the new waterfront infrastructure, required to support the 36th Americas Cup to be held in Auckland 2021.
Awarded in February 2018, the project was designed and constructed by the alliance team to accommodate participants and the public for the duration of the Cup and leave a legacy of infrastructure improvements along the waterfront.
Working to an accelerated programme the works have helped to transform the once industrial area into a vibrant entertainment district. The scope also included upgrading marine, landside and civil infrastructure, enhancing streetscapes and the installation of the Daldy Street Outfall to improve water quality and bring long-term benefits to Aucklanders and visitors.
In a feat of coordination and planning, over one Million hours of work across 13 different work fronts went into completing the project on time. The scope of work included:
- Over 70,000m3 of dredging
- Construction of seven wave calming breakwaters.
- Design and construction of fivemarine bases and a wharf structure.
- Building floating berths for superyachts and syndicates.
- Installation of a 500m long, 3m diameter stormwater outfall pipe.
- Relocation and construction of the new Sealink ferry terminal.
- Upgrade of the road and streetscape along Brigham Street.
- Installation of the new Silo Park Extension
Thank you to everyone involved for coming together to deliver a world class project - the project team, the local community, iwi partners, subcontractors, suppliers and our client, Auckland Council, Panuku, and MBIE.
