Hobsonville Point is a peninsula in the upper reaches of the Waitemata Harbour. Until recently it was Air Force land; now it’s being developed into a carefully-designed suburb – a project that will take at least 10 years.
The creation of Hobsonville Point has coincided with new health and safety regulations that make it essential for builders to use scaffolding to provide a safer work environment for their workers when scaffolding New Zealand houses. G.J Gardner Homes, one of the main development partners for Hobsonville Point, has chosen Collins Scaffolding as their scaffolding supply partner, for everything from internal to roof scaffolding hire.
Designed for high density housing, and with a number of different building companies competing for space, building in Hobsonville Point has its own unique challenges including tight time frames, small sites and the need to work around multiple trades.
