2019 WINNERS

TOM PYATT

STEEL CONSTRUCTION NZ PROJECTS $1.5-$5 MILLION, HIGHLY COMMENDED AWARD 2019

Company:Naylor Love Canterbury

Project:Lyttelton Port Company (LPC) Woolstore, Lyttelton



The LPC project involved the strengthening and repurposing of an existing 1950’s Woolstore building that would accommodate the Marina offices as well as provide space to fill future tenant demand.

The site was shared with Fulton Hogan, with Tom setting-up an ‘overlapping duties plan’ and ‘emergency processes’ with the other company. Tom was also responsible for the implementation of a Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP), which is not always instigated on construction sites. With hazards including a marine environment, ground contamination, site run-off protection (to avoid discharge into the harbour), and a high wind zone, the existence of a CEMP proved valuable.

The lack of drawings and specifications for the original structure meant variations and additional works were generated. Tom managed these cost-effectively and in a manner that maintained the client’s required completion date. Losing their Site Manager for a two-month period saw Tom having to step in cover this additional role. This was a challenge that Tom saw as presenting a valuable learning opportunity, which it proved to be. In describing Tom’s performance, the client said “Tom’s communication was exemplary, he is very clear in his programming and staging, and makes it crystal clear to all involved, as to the challenges in delivering the project.”
