66m & 45m Bridges for Royal Auckland & Grange Golf Club

The brief to Bridge It NZ was to design and construct a bridge connecting two amalgamated golf courses - the Royal Auckland and Grange Golf Clubs. A 66.5m x 3.6m multi-span bridge was needed to take pedestrians and their golf carts from one part of the course to another and to provide access for greenkeeper maintenance vehicles specific to the course.    

The bridge spans an environmentally delicate coastal marine reserve of mangroves and tidal flats on the Tamaki River so weekly monitoring inspections by Auckland City Council were conducted. On every inspection the highest possible score was achieved for a job that had stringent resource consent parameters including consideration for the ecology of flora and faunas well as high voltage power lines overhead.

Gavin Cormack, former Chief Executive of Beca and Royal Auckland and Grange Golf Club Captain at the time the bridge was built, was delighted with the outcome of the job: “The life of the bridge is important for us, so is the 100 year expected design life -  probably longer. We’re satisfied with the quality of the product, and with Bridge It’s background and experience, it met our requirements, and it was the cheapest”. Watch the video to learn how Bridge It NZ progressively constructed a robust, lightweight and strong CFT structure using minimal plant and a small excavator keeping costs down. 


"Working along side Bridge IT NZ was something my team and I at Adecco really enjoyed, the collaboration was first class. We knew where things were with regard to timeline and requirements of the project at all times. We were informed in advance of any changes happening which affected our team and felt confident that Bridge It were one step ahead of the game.

In my opinion they are a company who knows their strengths, executes the well and ensures the safety and wellbeing of not only their own employees but all sub-contractors working for them."
