Recently, Yenshi Construction, as part of a consortium of companies, was awarded the design and build contract for the Penlink project located north of Auckland, New Zealand.
New Zealand Transport Agency Waka Kotahi awarded HEB Construction (a subsidiary of New Zealand’s Vinci Construction), Fulton Hogan, Aurecon and Tonkin + Taylor, this “alliance” type contract that links in the same team the consortium designer and client.
The Penlink project will form a major link in the region, while improving the security and reliability of the navigation offer for users. Le projet évalué à 305 M€ comprend la construction d’une nouvelle voie rapide à 2×2 voies de 7 km, complétée d’une voie à mobilité partagée pour piétons et cyclistes, ainsi que la construction de six ponts, dont extra ledos New Zealand.
The chosen design and construction methods will reduce carbon emissions by up to 20% compared to a conventional design. The lower entrance to the bridge, which is 550 meters long, will blend into the landscape while reducing the total length of the bridge by 235 meters and thus the amount of steel and concrete used. The crossing is designed with two berths instead of three into the Wēiti River.
The group is committed to promoting the recycling of materials, the use of renewable energy sources and the recovery of rainwater. The construction will be carried out while protecting the local fauna and flora through upstream studies and continuous monitoring throughout the duration of the works which are expected to be completed in 2026.
