Vinci Construction’s New Zealand subsidiary HEB Construction has won around €145m worth of work there, split between harbourside improvements in Wellington on the North Island and road maintenance around Christchurch on the South Island.
In Wellington, HEB has been appointed by Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency as part of a consortium with Downer NZ and Tonkin + Taylor for the design and construction of 4.5km of coastal shared paths around the city’s harbour.
The project also includes building 2.7km of embankments and 800m of seawalls to protect against storms and rising sea levels.
That project is expected to be completed in 2026, Vinci said.
In Christchurch, HEB has been awarded the Christchurch Council Central and Northern Maintenance contracts, covering 1,000km of the council’s roads.
The contracts include surfacing and pavement renewals, street cleaning and line marking.
Both contracts are for an initial five-year period and commencing October 2022, each with the potential for a further 5-year term.
