Concrete Generator Pads for Kiwi Rail in Christchurch

Bowers Builders were tasked to remove an existing small bricked area and move and rebuild a large, strong concrete Generator Pad for Kiwi Rail Refrigerator Containers, in Christchurch.

The work began by excavating the existing bricked area, shown on the first photos by the blue lines sprayed lines. The excavation and removal of hardcore was a sizeable task as the photos reveal.

The whole project was captured in photos showing the clearing of the old site and reframing the new pad. An outside edge, adjacent to the rail track was first framed and cast. The main area was then reinforced with steel ready for the concrete pour.

The finished pad was 300mm thick using 50mpa of concrete. Those in the industry will appreciate the scale of the project and thickness of the new pads!

KiwiRail’s commentator says it is important for New Zealand that Kiwi Rail becomes “a high performance organisation”.

“Our focus remains on delivering further efficiencies and making improvements in our business so we can continue to build on the growing support of our customers, increase our market share and ensure a viable and sustainable rail system for future New Zealanders. That will involve simplifying the business, standardising our assets and investing in our people.”
