CCNZ Northland Construction Awards 2019

The team at Robinson Asphalts are extremely proud to have won two of the four Project categories at the 2019 CCNZ Northland Construction Awards. This is testament to the pride that the Robinson Asphalts team take in their work and the continual focus on delivering a First Class job every time.

The winning projects were: Sportsville Dargaville - Multipurpose Courts & Civil Works (Hynds Pipe Systems Construction Projects $500,000 - $1000000) and the McClean Landscaping project (Humes Construction Projects $0 -$100,000)

It’s all about team work at Robinson Asphalts. It’s always great to get recognition in the industry but projects can only be successful with great collaboration between the client and other key stakeholders. “For these projects we are particularly grateful to the Kauri Coast Recreational Society and Griffiths & Associates Ltd (Project Managers) for selecting and trusting us to deliver the valuable community driven Sportsville project. Also to local Architect Roger McClean (Designgroup Architects h & k) and his wife Kim for choosing us to partner with Busck Concrete (key supplier) to transform their vision into reality”

That’s our purpose at Robinson Asphalts - to turn vision into reality - we make it happen so people can have a positive sense of progress, place and pride.

These projects were both quite challenging for different reasons but both required a great deal of planning, precision, skill, innovation and problem solving and excellent communication was key. Tom Taylor was Contract Manager for Sportsville with David Wright as the Site Foreman. Mark Smith was Contract Manager for the McClean project and Tim Brocklehurst was the Builder/Site Foreman, and of course there were many more on the teams involved who can all take great pride in these awards.

The McClean project was an impressive and innovative design involving a series of cascading precast concrete steps and landings cantilevered to give a floating effect along with plastered concrete masonry retaining walls, pathways, fences, handrails, spa foundations and lighting.

The Sportsville Dargaville contract was for the full construction of 4 new multi-purpose asphalt sports courts and the upgrade of two existing courts. This package involved complex earthworks, levels, drainage, and stormwater, specialist 3 m high fencing, sports nets, pathways and a concrete block Volley Wall – all on a tight and hard earned budget through community fundraising and grants.
