Mapua Sheds

Project: Commercial

Location: Mapua, Tasman

Client: Tasman District Council

Value: $1.1 million

Contract period: 4 months

Mapua Wharf – Shed 4 Development was a significant undertaking by the Tasman District Council to provide additional retail space for the growing visitors to the Mapua Wharf area.

As the Christmas holiday period is the busiest retail period of the year for the Mapua retailers, delivering on time was critical. A proven track record of delivering on time was the deciding factor in being chosen by the Tasman District Council to complete this project.

With a short construction period of just 4 months, organization, innovation and planning were critical.


Some outside the box thinking, contractor co-operation and as much prefabrication as possible allowed this project to flow and reach in completion on time, and on budget.

Space on site was also another factor that required foresight, planning and co-operation to overcome. With the existing retailers still operating in close proximity care was required cause as little disruption as possible.

Overall a very successful project for all concerned.
