WIN Auckland: Creating the Stage for the 36th America’s Cup

  • 03 Jun 2020
  • 12:00 PM - 12:45 PM

The Auckland Chapter of WIN New Zealand is delighted to invite you to a virtual site tour of the 36th America’s Cup Infrastructure Project. In this Zoom webinar, Jamie Cachine, Deputy Chair for Auckland WIN and Geotechnical Investigations Lead for Wynyard Edge Alliance (WEA), will provide a project overview and guide your photo tour across the Auckland waterfront to see the new infrastructure developed for the big event. Along the way, you will hear from 7 women working in a variety of disciplines who each played an important part in achieving the project’s milestones. Join us to learn about:

  • The alliance model, why it was chosen for AC36 and what it’s like to work as an alliance
  • Building wharves, wavebreaks, and a new Sealink Ferry Terminal
  • Wynyard Point development, Silo Park extension, and a stormwater outfall for 1/3 of Auckland’s CBD
  • Historic land use and contamination
  • Protecting marine life during construction

Following the virtual tour, we will have time for some questions from the audience.
