Client: Nelson City Council
Project: Neale Park Artwork
  • Objectives

    The objective of the project was to provide a foundation design that matched the Spanish designed sculptures unconventional shape and sensitive to the parkscape. CGW provided geotechnical input, foundation design and construction monitoring.
  • Requirements

    Being an historic refuse landfill reclamation site the unforeseen ground conditions posed significant issues in the design of the foundations. Also the unconventional shape required the foundation not to detract from the sculpture’s visual impact.
  • Results

    The integrated timber piled concrete foundation gives the Juan Jose Novella sculpture a sure footing as Nelson’s gateway artwork, now and into the future.
