The Result

The combining of three projects into one overarching project saved time and money for Hamilton City Council – replacement of the central city jetty below Waikato Museum, replacement of the Ferrybank revetment or retaining wall and installation of a floating device (a deflector) on the river to protect critical water pipes near Hamilton Gardens.


Upon completion of this project the river is now more accessible, boosts river tourism and reinforces the link between Hamilton Gardens, Waikato Museum and the central City, and safeguards essential infrastructure. People can now more easily relax by the river and appreciate this much-loved natural resource and the feature artwork – five pou (carvings) representing the historic significance of the area to the local hapuu.


 The Ferrybank Revetment Wall along with the Central City Jetty is used by over 1 million visitors per year and is a favourite for Hamiltonians and visitors alike. We are proud to have worked on this and are excited to see it featured in the following Waikato Times article.

The Project

Neuflow Projects worked alongside Te Haa o te Whenua o Kirikiriroa (THaWK), Harrison Grierson, Tonkin & Taylor, MAP Projects, and Eugene Kara to upgrade the existing central city jetty and adjoining revetment wall structures. These assets were known to be inundated during flood events along the Waikato River and were failing, causing disruption to River users and the Community alike. 


The new jetty and revetment wall were located within traditional trading routes which meant the archaeological features had to be both preserved during construction and celebrated for future generations to enjoy. The five Pou designed by local artist Eugene Kara  and constructed as part of the new jetty structure is a feature of this.
