Great results. Every time.

Kaputone Creek Realignment

Kaputone Creek Realignment

Christchurch City Council engaged Grounds & Services Ltd to realign and naturalise an existing  creek to support stormwater management and offer environmental benefits.

Our landscaping and civil construction teams are often able to complement each other and deliver added value and efficiencies to GSL projects. Kaputone Creek Realignment is an excellent example of this in practice.

Taking advantage of this capacity enabled the effective allocation of plant, resources, materials and skills. GSL Building also assisted with the building of timber boardwalks and bridges.

With the new residential development and Northern Arterial Corridor soon to be constructed alongside, Kaputone Creek now offers an attractive and functional amenity zone for this area.

The newly realigned Kaputone Creek was commissioned to Council in May 2016, a full two months ahead of the original construction schedule. The timely delivery of works was thanks to a combination of excellent weather, dry ground conditions and carefully planned work staging.
