Toilet Block, Carpark & Sports Fields

The High Street Pilot Project is working towards a more accessible High Street that works better for people.

Stellar Projects undertook full scope professional services through the construction phase of a new car park, toilet and sports field upgrade to provide a comprehensive sports facility at Deep Creek Reserve for Auckland Council on behalf of the residents of Torbay. This entailed investigations and design of the car park, drainage and toilet facility, in addition to design management and coordination of the sports fields and lighting. We also provided consenting, quantity surveying and MSQA services to deliver the entire project.

The previous sports field did not have drainage and was known to become saturated, nor was there lighting, toilets or car parking for users of the facility. The field has now been upgraded with a sand-base, natural grass and full lighting to enable use all year round.

The site provided numerous challenges, the most significant being that Deep Creek Reserve is a closed landfill and therefore any unwanted materials would be costly to dispose of. To avoid unnecessary waste, the excavated topsoil was tested and approved for reuse at the dog park in the lower section. Also, overland flow which previously caused flooding of neighbouring private properties, was successfully addressed by conveyance via a series of bioswales and culverts to a nearby creek.
