Takapuneke civil earthworks preparation

During this project we’ve worked with local Tāngata Whenua to develop a memorial that pays respect to the history of the area.

The works comprise earthworks (cutting and filling), the construction of low retaining walls and landscape features within the upper north-eastern portion of Greens Point Reserve (Wider Takapūneke Reserve) and the installation of a pou.

This included:

  • Earthworks to construct a Takarangi (koru) with pathways leading into a central area. One pathway will be sealed asphalt, and the second will be compacted lime
  • Retaining walls will be constructed to retain the pathways
  • Construction of a pou within the central area
  • A pull in / drop off area for mobility vehicles at the entrance off Stanley Place
  • An accessible path and boardwalk linking the Takarangi to a future car park
  • Landscape planting.
Takapuneke construction


Takapūneke reserve has been a high-profile project for CMT Group and likewise the Council. We’ve been humbled by the opportunity to work alongside the Ōnuku Marae and stakeholders to see this project come to life. By attending the blessing ceremony followed by a pōwhiri and hui at the marae, we’ve built strong relationships with the local Tāngata Whenua.

We consistently adhered to the environmental plan set by ECan and Enviro Co.

Our eye for detail and respect for our environment enabled us to deliver this project to a particularly high standard. Our ability to combine civil and building work under one company has allowed for quick turnaround times and less complication and subcontracting.
