Halcyon Development – Kiteroa Place

We are approaching completion of the first stage of the Halcyon development at Kiteroa Place on the Cashmere Hills.  This is the latest in a long line of developments on the hill where Fox & Associates have assisted and we find that these projects always present interesting challenges.

This project has proved to be particularly complex – we have encountered a number of complicated issues that we have never seen before on just one site:

[bullet_list]

  • Adverse subgrade conditions (soft soils, hard rock, soft rock and groundwater)
  • Steep slopes
  • Two titles and separate owners
  • A narrow single point of access
  • Existing services including connections to existing dwellings and an underground high voltage cable
  • Requirement for retaining walls
  • No sewer outfall
  • A tongue of rural zoning through the middle of the site
  • Existing occupied dwellings on site

[/bullet_list]

Working with the developers, the site contractors and Council (CCC and ECan) we have been able to work through these challenges – you can find out more about how some of these were overcome by clicking here.

We are particularly pleased with the results and we believe that the development is a credit to all of those involved.
