Manukau City Council contacted NZSTI to design a new cricket block with changed orientation allowing the possibility of first class cricket to be played on the field in the future. This involved improving distances to boundaries and removing interference with other cricket ovals.
Construction was tendered and carried out under the supervision of NZSTI. Redevelopment of the this multi-use facility involved NZSTI’s agronomists project managing three phases namely; specifying, tendering and managing the construction of the pitch. Unique design elements were incorporated to allow use of transportable covers and improved drainage of bowlers run ups.
Howick Pakuranga Cricket Club, one of the most successful clubs in Auckland utilise the cricket block for premier matches and are happy with the outcome.
