Revolutionizing Efficiency: Our Remarkable Journey with the Rakaia Weighbridge Office Project

Embarking on the Rakaia Weigh Bridge office project in September 2023, our Canterbury team undertook their most significant offsite manufacturing endeavour to date.

As a subcontractor to Higgins, we took on the construction of this office offsite. Easing site congestion while they undertook the civil component of the job.  

Nestled within the efficiency-maximizing confines of the CMT Group yard, this project has set a new benchmark for rapid construction and timely delivery. The building was ready for onsite installation in November 2023.


Under the adept leadership of Christchurch Regional Manager Ross Baynes, our skilled crew showcased their prowess by completing the first stage in under three months.

Designed to meet the client's needs, the office boasts essential features including;

  •  a bathroom,
  •  kitchenette,
  •  interview room
  • observatory/office space, all without compromising on space or resources.

The office was safely delivered to site and established on piles. We're now working with the client to connect underground services and create an approaching ramp and stairs up to the entrance.


The utilisation of offsite manufacturing in this project not only showcases our commitment to innovation but also offers practical benefits for our clients. Building at our dedicated site minimises travel, reduces overlap with other works, diminishes environmental impact, and accelerates construction timelines—resulting in significant savings in time, money, and environmental resources.
