Mount Green Sports Facility
Tauranga City Council
Tauranga, New Zealand
Tauranga City Council wished to develop recreational grounds to accompany the new Cosmopolitan Club building, Croquet Club and Bowling Club on the same site in Mount Maunganui. The Mount Greens Sports facility includes one artificial and three grass bowling greens, six croquet lawns, 360m2 off-street carparking, 6,000m2 main facility carparking, grounds and street lighting and two facilities buildings.
Calibre provided civil design, tender documentation and supervision for the bowling greens, croquet lawns, internal and external parking, paths, water supply including bore installation, power supply and the design of the two facilities buildings. Council required a low impact stormwater design, which was met through construction of rain-gardens, sub-surface soakage modules, permeable pavements (surepave) and pre-soakage treatment devices (Humeceptors).
Our team worked closely with head consultant Boffa Miskell to provide detailed design and engineering supervision of the two hectare sports facility.
