Project design capacity: ~ 45 people

Reasonably small in size but big in importance for Auckland Transport.

Previously all of Auckland Transport’s services were disjointed and located across multiple sites.  The project involved merging all Auckland Transport’s control rooms into one building with the aim of having various disciplines cohabitating the same space, combining different sectors including CTC monitoring team, public transport operation and parking sector.

Our role

  • Achieved fitout project within time and budget
  • Cost management services
  • Appointment, management and liaison with main contractor and consultants
  • Management of the delivery/ installation of the client’s IT/technology solution
  • Preparation of tender/contract documents in accordance with AT conditions
  • Administered the construction contract on behalf of AT
  • Undertook practical completion sign off with AT

 

From concept to practical completion the XIGO team provided the level of service you would expect from a highly professional organisation…the point of difference was the level of communication and responsiveness to any challenges the project had. In simple terms ATOC would not have been a success without Andrew and Youssef’s efforts”
