RCP provided design and construction project management services along with building and resource consent management for the complex redevelopment of Eden Park. The project provided for the redevelopment of the stadium, replacing the east and south stands with new buildings and internal connecting concourses. The 3-level east stand and 6 level south stand increased capacity and vastly improves the stadiums facilities. Multiple functions include convention centre facilities, service areas, food and beverage outlets, office space, corporate suites and player, coach and media facilities. Efficient circulation was also a key feature with transportation and improved carparking interfaces being critical.
The project also involved site wide landscaping and new wayfinding signage. RCP managed the event overlay component of the redevelopment for Rugby World Cup 2011, showcasing to the world Auckland as a world class venue. This involved temporary grandstands to accommodate 11,000 additional seats and were the two tallest temporary stands ever constructed.
In addition, RCP also delivered the required infrastructure to meet the needs of global media, hospitality and corporate and retail functions.
