The Project:

Economech has been the main mechanical contractor at the Auckland Airport for the last 20 years undertaking all ranges of projects from major expansion stages to ongoing tenancy fitouts and base build alterations.

Following the successful completion of the "Pier Extension" and Retail areas at Auckland International Airport, Economech was awarded the mechanical services installation of the $180 million International Terminal Redevelopment.

Working closely with Auckland International Airport Ltd and its Consultants, Economech had significant design input into the project and provided value-engineering services by assisting in the optimisation of construction and operating costs. As the Terminal was operational throughout the construction period, all services, including air-conditioning, were required to be operational at all times. Detailed planning by Economech allowed this to occur, and the impact on the public during the three-year construction period was minimal.

Economech has also been involved with projects such as: Central Plant Upgrade, Departures, Emigration, Duty Free and Airside Retail Redevelopments, Pier B Construction, Stage 3 Arrivals Expansion, Stage 2 Terminal Expansion (Central Plant, Airside & Landside), Pier A Construction & Upgrades, Domestic Terminal Upgrade, Pier Gate Lounge and Air New Zealand No 1 Cargo refurbishments. Also undertaken were individual buildings including the Bank of New Zealand and NZ Post buildings with various other ancillary buildings and tenants.
