D&H Steel triumphed in the 2022 Steel Construction New Zealand (SCNZ) Excellence in Steel Awards, taking home the Supreme Award ahead of 20 worthy finalists for its work on the New Lynn to Avondale Shared Path. Steel features heavily in the Shared Path, which follows the geometry of the existing KiwiRail tracks. The pathway, which opened in June, comprises several different steel applications including elevated helical boardwalks, balustrades and handrails, and a new pedestrian bridge. Sited over rough terrain and waterways, D&H provided value engineering to make the 2.9km mostly off-road pathway buildable and practicable.
