  • Raising the bar on Rail Safety in New Zealand

    A simple solution has been developed by the McConnell Dowell and Built Environs joint venture, on the Puhinui Station Interchange project alongside Auckland Transport, KiwiRail, and NZTA. The solution is a rail protection shield that allows the project team to work safely in the island platform and lift materials over live train tracks and electrified lines. This rail protection shield is changing the way the rail industry view safety and construction in New Zealand.


  • Puhinui Station Upgrade Project Milestone

    The first major milestone was reached on the Puhinui Station Upgrade recently with the successful deconstruction of the central station ramp during a rail closure recently. The joint venture between McConnell Dowell and Built Environs has developed an early works strategy for the Puhinui Train Station Upgrade project with safety at the core of the construction. This is imperative as a large portion of work needs to be carried out over the live tracks and around the electrified lines in the rail corridor.


  • Built Environs Awarded Adelaide Oval Hotel Project

    Built Environs are pleased to announce the award of a design and construction contract for the Adelaide Oval Hotel by the Adelaide Oval.

    The hotel will be built on two elevated pods that follow the external curves of the eastern façade of the stadium and therefore will not encroach on the parklands or the plaza. None of the stadium’s existing access/egress, including the plaza and atrium entry, are affected by the development and neither is the seating bowl.
