Located in Wellington, CentrePort is New Zealand’s most strategically situated intermodal port hub, linking road, and rail, domestic and international shipping services.
Impact has completed numerous jobs on the Wellington waterfront for CentrePort, in the capacity of project manager or Engineer to the Contract.
A major project which had a significant impact on CentrePort’s operations is the Wellington City Council initiated ‘greening of the quays’ along Waterloo Quay. As a result, Impact was engaged by CentrePort to act as its project manager; to interface with CentrePort staff, Wellington City Council and the contractor to ensure minimal disruption to CentrePort’s operations. The project has delivered better access to the city for the increasing number of cruise ship passengers and the surge of visitors expected for the rugby world cup. The new canopies provide weather protection on part of the eastern side of Waterloo Quay. Extensive planting has been completed to extend the ‘Greening of the Quays’, which starts on Jervois Quay and heads northwards along Customhouse and now Waterloo Quay.
A pivotal role Impact played in this project was overseeing the relaying of all the railway tracks on the port-side which included careful planning so that containers being delivered by rail were not delayed. Impact has gained a wealth of experience working with CentrePort operations and is well versed with the importance such an integral transport hub has in a major city.
CentrePort is a vital contributor to the New Zealand economy and as such we are constantly investigating new business initiatives and operating efficiencies. Impact has become a key part of our team and is playing a major role in the planning and delivery of strategically important projects. We demand high standards of service, concise and timely reporting and strategic thinking that align with our objectives. Impact more than meets this need.
