Mapua Waterfront Park
Allied Concrete proud to supply the concrete for the Mapua Waterfront Park in Nelson for the main contractors in stage two of the development, Coman Construction & IMB Construction.
Allied concrete supplied over 120m3 of concrete including both exposed and structural mixes to Coman Construction & IMB Constructionfor for the Waterfront Parks landscaping elements incluing concrete seating and pathways.
As anticipated, the amphitheatre beside the estuary is already proving the busiest part of the park, with wharf timber benches and concrete seating cubes providing spaces to sit, eat, play music and contemplate the view. Running the length of the back row, sandblasted into the concrete, is a poem written specially for the new park by Tasman poet Cliff Fell. The mood is of quietude, and springtime expectation of new beginnings – a fitting sentiment for a place so utterly transformed. - Matt Philp
