As Blackcat is a New Zealand owned adventure tourism business, being eco-friendly has been a key objective of the project. Through a study funded by ECCA, the project team have been able to design an electrically self-sufficient operation specifically designed for Blackcat’s needs.
The project required careful management through the design and consenting stage, due to the buildings unique location on a wharf.
The isolated and unique location also meant Cequent had to work closely with the contracting team to ensure the tight 5 month construction program was met and health and safety and environmental management standards were maintained.
Cequent have been working with Blackcat Cruises to create an environmentally sustainable operation in conjunction with the upgrade of their facilities located on Akaroa’s Main Wharf.
