Waiparuru Hall


$136 Million


University of Auckland


August 2017- February 2020

The Waiparuru Hall development is the construction of student accommodation (786) Bedrooms and facilities, on the current undeveloped site at 35 Whitaker place on the fringe of the Auckland CBD.

Access to the site is from Whitaker Place which is a cul de sac servicing a number of existing student accommodation buildings/apartments. The project comprises of two towers of 12 and 14 levels respectively linked and connected via two-level podium with a split basement beneath.

The 10m retaining wall is currently under construction. This enabling and retaining works package has been very difficult and has certainly had its challenges due to lack of access/room on site, steepness of the site, poor ground conditions, contamination, large services easement in the middle of the site etc.

The project is a full package Design & Build with novated consultants. Dominion has been involved from ECI from the start of the project.
