Public Infrastructure | ACH Consulting Engineers

New Zealand has switched in recent years from almost all rural living to 86% of its population dwelling in an urban environment. Nearly 30% of New Zealand’s population live in Auckland. As we shift from an agricultural driven economy to a service oriented economy our urban centres will continue to feel the strain of aging infrastructure.

Every new apartment built, every bit of infill development, places pressure on public drainage, sanitary sewer, and water supply reticulation networks. ACH Consulting Engineers have civil engineers whose focus is the upgrading and extending of these three essential water systems.

We have successfully completed projects for Territorial Authorities within the greater Auckland region and beyond, including:

  • Waitakere City (Ecowater)
  • Auckland City
  • Metrowater
  • North Shore City
  • Manukau City
  • Manukau Water

Projects have ranged in size and complexity from design of new and replacement public reticulation networks for stormwater, wastewater and potable water supply to preparation of entire catchment management plans. In most cases ACH Consulting Engineers handle the tender and project supervision, including obtaining Resource Consents, consultation with Iwi, property owners and other affected parties.
