skyline helipad & luge track

Location: Skyline, Queenstown
Project Completion Date:  June 2017
Company: Skyline Queenstown



Project Details:

The project involved extending the helipade and upgrading the fast luge track by installing four new culverts.     Establishment on site required a lot of pre-planning such as getting the transporter driver to assess the road for access or if we had to track the 12t digger up the narrow Ben Lomond access track. Truck drivers and sub-contractors were also taken up the track so that decisions could be made on what size trucks were needed to transport materials to the site.  Getting the culverts and concrete trucks on site was a challenge with the narrow track.  Work was undertaken in the middle of winter, so hard frosts and snow slowed progress.  We used expo polystyrene sheets to cover the gravel base and concrete once poured to protect it from the freezing temperatures.
