Accessible city

Accessible city

GSL were subcontracted by Fulton Hogan to help create the footpaths and cycle ways as part of the Accessible City initiative. Accessible City is a rebuild project that aims to make moving around the central city safer, easier and more enjoyable.

GSL has been responsible for the work in Colombo Street outside the bus exchange, Lichfield Street and High Street. The project involved completing all the drainage work before building the footpaths and cycle ways.

Skillful management of a wide variety of problems was needed on this project. There were frequent variations, redesigns and changes in the project’s scope. Digging operations met unexpected surprises and multiple contractors all working in the same area had to be managed.

GSL was able to take advantage of its flexibility and strong communication and liaison skills to ensure its work was completed on time and the project would be ready in time for the official opening. At short notice, the number of staff and equipment was adjusted. Close liaison was also maintained with other contractors to minimise delays and ensure work progressed as smoothly as possible.

As a trusted partner of Fulton Hogan and a proud Canterbury company, GSL is fully committed to the rebuild of the central city.
