This 350-Lot subdivision in Lincoln required numerous challenges to be addressed during the design and construction phases, and offers residents more than just a home.
Crum park has been used as a sports ground since the 1970s and was in need of an upgrade to the synthetic field and extension to the tennis court area.
Fraser Thomas prepared an integrated resource consent application, with specialist lighting, traffic, noise and landscaping inputs being provided by other consultants. All resource and building consents were granted and construction is largely complete. The new artificial soccer field has recently been tested by FIFA and gained a “FIFA One Star” rating.
Crum Park encompasses an 8.5ha reserve situated on the slopes below Titirangi Road towards Green Bay and is located in a residential area in West Auckland. The Park was formerly an old clay pit that was filled in and has been in use as a sports ground since 1970 by various sporting codes including rugby, soccer and softball. It is currently being used as soccer fields by the Bay Olympic Football Club.
Initial investigations involved a topographical survey to provide existing contour and drainage data for design purposes, and geotechnical, civil and environmental engineering assessments to determine the ground conditions, extent and condition of existing drainage systems and the presence of soil contamination related to historic landfilling activity and sports field use.
