When Stride Property Group wanted to evaluate options for the redevelopment of its 5.2 hectare industrial site in East Tamaki, it engaged us to advise on access and development options. One of those options, completely redeveloping the site as a purpose-built headquarters for Waste Management was selected.
As part of the design and consenting teams we assisted both Waste Management and Stride with developing the site layout which completely separates operational (refuse collection trucks) from non-operational (car) traffic, separates pedestrians from moving traffic as far as possible, provides sufficient parking for the truck fleet, and sufficient parking for employees and visitors. Waste Management had several requirements for the project, including providing for the charging of both electric cars and electric trucks, which were incorporated into the site design.
The project received Resource Consent in April 2018, and was operational at the end of 2019. At the 2020 Property Council New Zealand awards the project won the Rider Levett Bucknall Supreme Award, the Resene Green Building Award, the CBRE Industrial Property Award. The project was also recognised for Excellence in the RCP Commercial Office Property Award.
