  • Project Title: Trunk Sewer 6 (TS6) Upgrade for North Shore City
  • Project Number: 28-06-04
  • Project Date: 28-06-04

This project comprised rehabilitating a badly corroded 460m length of 600 diameter concrete trunk sewer line by inserting a PE slip liner. The contractor period was 10 weeks although the pipe insertion itself was completed over a period of 12 hours.

Although not the lowest tender received, the contractor was awarded to Smythes Contractors as a result of their clearly superior  methodology and excellent track records and references.

Smythes Contractors were efficient and pro-active in dealing with difficulties and demonstrated sound project management and communications skills in addition to their clear technical expertise. North Shore City also requested Smythes to complete another difficult drilling task while they were set-up in Takapuna. Both projects were completed most successfully and the client ourselves were left highly impressed by their competence.
