Wellington Waterfront – North Kumutoto public space

Location: Wellington Waterfront

Client: Wellington City Council

Description: Comprehensive redevelopment of the northern public space alongside the historic Kumutoto stream.

Value: undisclosed

Year: 2017 - 2018

Project Undertaken By: Peryer Construction WGTN Ltd

At the commencement of this project, we were aware of the importance to manage and minimise any environmental impact during the construction works, therefore it was critical we worked closely with the Wellington City Council and Wellington Regional Council to adhere to all necessary environmental safe-guards, guidelines and restrictions.

The Kumutoto stream is of extreme cultural and historic importance to the local Te Atiawa which ran from it’s original spring in Kelburn, down to the ocean where Lambton Quay now sits on reclaimed land.  Currently  named The Terrace, this was the original ridge that the Kumutoto Pa sat on, overlooking the stream.

Peryer Construction liaised with the Wellington City Council and Te Atiawa to ensure all appropriate protocols are followed in respect of this extremely important cultural heritage.
