CGW were the lead designers for this 50 lot subdivision for Horncastle homes in Christchurch. We designed the subdivision layout including all roading, services and infrastructure. We also undertook all the geotechnical investigations, site suitability reporting and then followed through with the construction monitoring and sign-off.
