Cato Bolam’s expertise and detailed local knowledge is playing a key role in helping New Zealand Retail Property Group, Ritchies Transport and Auckland Council establish a major growth centre on Auckland’s outskirts. Our clients have used our design, planning, resource consent, surveying and engineering services to maximise the potential of the 85-hectare Massey North site, which includes the town centre, employment and apartment residential areas, bus depot, roads, stormwater ponds and open space. Our cost-effective and environmental initiatives include the sustainable use of onsite earthworks materials.

Tupare Peninsula is a complex coastal development on ecologically and archaeologically sensitive land adjoining the shores of the Kaipara Harbour, South Head. Cato Bolam consulted with local iwi, council and the Historic Places Trust to gain all land use, environmental, coastal and other consents. We carried out ecological assessments, provided engineering design, requested and let construction tenders and provided project management for our client, Tupare Farms. The 35-site development includes environmental initiatives designed to protect natural wetland and bush and low-impact stormwater treatment.


Fairway Bay

We have worked with the original land owners of the Gulf Harbour Eastern Boat Harbour and surrounding land since 2000.  The initial phase involved the strategic planning to facilitate approval of the Comprehensive Development Plan for 585 sites across the Hobbs Wharf town centre and surrounding residential areas.  We have subsequently been commissioned by Top Harbour to manage the completion of the land use and subdivision through the design, consenting, land development engineering, construction and completion phases to title.  The Fairway Bay; Marina Views, Discovery, The Point have been completed.  Resolution is currently under construction with work on the town centre expected to commence next season.
