As a representative of the client (Auckland Council) Cato Bolam’s fish ladder design enabled us to mitigate our effects on the environment through allowing fish passage over such an incredible height difference. There was serious doubt as to the feasibility of creating a fish passage of such height. To our great relief it worked and ultimately allowed us to unlock a significant amount of employment land upstream of the device. It was just one example of the numerous innovations that Cato Bolam came up with over the life of the large Westgate project.
