Seaside Park Landfill Rehabilitation, Auckland, New Zealand


Auckland Council



Project details:

This rehabilitation project created a complex at Seaside Park that displays a range of innovative features covering landscaping and land-use concepts, design and construction practices.

With the closure of the Brady Road landfill, the challenge of this project was to achieve a solution that met client requirements and also satisfied community and stakeholder expectations. No easy feat as the site was a disused landfill with approximately half of the area having little, or no landfill cover.

In terms of physical size, cost and duration of rehabilitation works, it is the largest project of its kind completed by Auckland Council, and is the largest municipal landfill rehabilitation project ever undertaken in New Zealand.
