Key Project Details





Fulton Hogan John Holland Joint Venture

Project Value

Approximately $3m


Novare Design worked as a design subcontractor to the main construction contractor, working closely with the lead designer GHD. Architectural design was provided by White Landscape and Urbanism with Johnson Witehira.

The SH1 Ellerslie Acoustic Barrier project involves construction of ~1km of noise walls adjacent to the Southern Motorway in Ellerslie.

Novare carried out the structural engineering design of the concrete panels and foundations. Initial concept designs for foundations included ground-planted steel posts and conventionally-reinforced strip footings. The preferred strip footing concept was refined further using steel-fibre-reinforced-concrete (SFRC) to replace the majority of the reinforcing bars and significantly increase on-site construction efficiencies.

Novare also carried out the structural engineering for the feature Taurapa and Tauihu elements, utilising laser-cut steel panels.
