On behalf of the Bay of Plenty Regional Council and the owners of Papahikahawai Island I would like to thank you and your team for the outstanding bridge you have built for us.
You took the design from AECOM, priced its construction competitively, and provided an alternative methodology that would improve the structure’s performance and save Council money. Your tendered price was below the Engineer’s Estimate for the contract.
You and your team completed the build efficiently and effectively, including the engagement and management of sub-contractors, to the admiration of landowners and onlookers from the Maketū community. The bridge is now an asset to the local environment and blends in well with the natural estuarine surroundings.
The finished product has been praised by the AECOM engineer signing it off for the Western Bay of Plenty District Council’s Building Inspectorate, and by our in-house Engineering Manager.
Based on my experience, I would recommend Edifice Contracts Ltd to anybody looking to build a quality pedestrian bridge in relatively remote or difficult and sensitive environments.

I have worked for Edifice Contracts on a number of jobs providing helicopter support. Some of the worksites are very remote and inherently challenging. I have found Roy and his team to be very professional and well organised which in turn makes jobs run efficiently and safely. Roy's team is very competent in working under the helicopter dealing with a wide range of difficult and unusual loads.
I can confidently recommend Edifice Contracts as a honest, efficient and professional company. I look forward to a continuing relationship between Edifice Contracts and Skywork Helicopters.

Council approached Edifice almost 6 years ago to discuss what sort of bridge could be built but it wasn’t until last year that the project was able to be progressed past concept stage. Edifice were very easy to work with in customizing the design to suit the Council’s specific requirements and at all stages of the project, I knew when the key milestones were going to be met. Installation was right on schedule and we couldn’t be happier with the final result.Stuart Kilmister Cycleways, Walkways, Bridleways Planner Te Kaiarahi Ara Waewae Kâpiti Coast District Council
