In 2010, Isaac Construction was appointed by CIAL and project manager Coffey Projects to complete the airside apron works for the new Christchurch International-Domestic Terminal project. This project was staged over three years, with extremely tight deadlines and complex international airport specifications.
Works included 80,000m2 of new & resurfaced pavement, installation of airside infrastructure including water main, 11kV line, storm water system with concrete drainage structures, fabrication and construction of a covered pedestrian walkway, floodlighting, NIGS gantry, AGL and aircraft hard stands, bollards and baseplates.
Isaac Construction worked closely with both Coffeys Projects and CIAL to develop and refine 5 primary airside staging plans with a number of sub-stages. It was essential the airport remain fully operational throughout construction, which required considerable cooperation and coordination between all parties working on the site (Beca, CIAL, Coffey, Hawkins, Mainzeal) to ensure a successful outcome.
The contract proceeded well and key programme milestones were met, with nil lost time injuries recorded.
