Project: Hawaiki Cable Landing Station



Project Partners

Hawthorn Geddes engineers and architects ltd (Architect/Designer), McKay (Project Manager), Trigg Construction (Construction Company)

Originally envisioned as an inconspicuous ‘farm building’ the Hawaiki Cable Landing Station is now a dramatic architectural feature on Mangawhai Heads. The building blends seamlessly with its natural surroundings, forming the perfect balance of beauty without prominence. Don’t be fooled by its appearance as a luxury beach house, the inside of the building is anything but standard. It houses a bespoke electrical, telco, industrial and civil solution to land the undersea internet cable that improves the speed and reliability of New Zealand’s internet.


Project: Singh Dairy Barn


Calder Stewart Construction

Project Partners

Calder Stewart Construction Ltd (Construction Company), Meyer Cruden Engineering Ltd (Engineer)

The Singh Dairy Barn shows how excellence in industrial design and construction leads to exceptionally happy dairy cows, and a significant lift in farm production. Calder Stewart Construction and GEA Farm Technologies undertook a Design-Build project to create a world-class dairy barn system in Gordonton, Waikato, for third generation dairy farmer Aman Singh. The resulting industrial building, and shift from a traditional pastoral grazing system to a ‘cut-and-carry’ for feed, enabled a lift in on-farm cow numbers from 600 to 1,000, along with an impressive lift in per-cow output of 10-15%.
