Overview

Flow was responsible for providing transport engineering advice in support of the fourth to seventh series’ of the television series ‘The Block’, each filmed in a different location across Auckland. This included providing technical advice to support the design process, assessing the transport effects in support of the resource consent process, developing Temporary Traffic Management Plans for the construction and television production, preparing temporary road resolutions and liaising with Auckland Transport, Auckland Council and the local communities.

Challenge

The television show’s strict production timeline has been a challenge for the Flow team, as has been balancing the often conflicting needs of the many project stakeholders.

Solutions/Approach

Meeting these needs required a very collaborative approach between Flow, the production and construction companies, Auckland Transport, Auckland Council and the local community.

Outcome

The team’s efforts were a success however and has contributed towards four successful television series, 16 beautiful new homes and minimal disruption to residential neighbourhoods.
