Resolve Group would like to congratulate all the winners of the 2012 New Zealand Engineering Excellence Awards, announced on November 30. In particular, we would like to acknowledge the quality of the engineering work done by Beca and Fletcher Construction Company Ltd on the New Lynn Rail Trench and Station, which deservedly won the Supreme Award for New Zealand Engineering Excellence along with the Transportation Infrastructure Award.

The project, completed in March 2010, has contributed to the rejuvenation of New Lynn and NZEE Awards Judges were impressed with the commitment of the project team to minimising the inevitable disruption to the community, to their proactive approach to identifying and resolving issues, and to their commitment to sustainability as evidenced through allowances made for future electrification. The architecturally attractive station building was another key factor in their selection.

Resolve Group was involved in the New Lynn project as Engineer to the contract.
