As a part of Housing New Zealand’s community renewal project in Cannons Creek this six townhouse development was undertaken on land that was once occupied by only two state houses. With the demolition of the existing houses undertaken by others Tracer Construction wasted no time in getting the extensive site services and groundworks underway, connecting all utilities and getting the slabs down ready to build some houses. Heavy liquidated damages, approaching winter weather and a tight timeframe all combined to ensure that this project was anything but a walk in the park, but with early day by day construction planning and faultless execution we ensured that the project was delivered in time for the lucky new HNZC tenants to move in to the weekend after our deadline.
Such was Tracer's performance on budget and program on this development that McKenzie Higham had absolutely no reluctance at all to put our name forward to HNZC for construction a 7 unit development in Flora Street.
