The Crossings Limited (TCL)


Tauriko, Tauranga, New Zealand

Tauranga Crossing

Located in Tauranga’s fastest growing residential and industrial area, the Lakes in Tauriko – Tauranga Crossing is a lifestyle, dining, and shopping centre, which also forms an entertainment hub. Its location has high visibility to passing traffic, and direct access to State Highways 29 and 36, as well as Route K direct to the Tauranga’s City Centre. 

Following the opening of Tauranga Crossing’s Stage 1 development in September 2016, a partial opening of the Stage 2 mall occurred in early October 2018, with the remainder finished and opened in early 2019.  

Stage 2 reinforces the Centre’s role in the region with the 47,000sqm fully enclosed mall, which includes a state-of-the-art cinema complex incorporating 1,000-plus seats and a V-max auditoria (the first of its kind in the region). It also has a two-level enclosed dining precinct, external play space and kinetic sculptures, seventy-plus retailers, and an additional 700 carpark spaces.

With a long-standing relationship with the client, TSA Riley was engaged to complete Stages 2A and 2B, and provided full project management services. These included Engineer to the Contract, Engineer’s Representative and Project Manager on the basebuild structure, multi-deck carpark, and tenant fitouts.

Our role included contractor procurement, managing the design team, as well as all the contract administration throughout the duration of the build. It also required a high level of stakeholder management with tenants and their associated design teams and fit out contractors, as well as constant engagement with Tauranga City Council with multiple consents, and environmental controls at the site. TSA Riley worked closely with, and monitored the main contractor to ensure construction works were executed to meet the strict project deadlines. 

The site also included geotechnical challenges and required an alternative consenting strategy to ensure the design was not holding up works on site. Complicated design elements required flexibility to suit the retail environment and local trades were procured in a heated market. 

Stage 3 is currently in progress and once fully completed, Tauranga Crossing will become the leading retail centre for the Bay of Plenty region. 

The project was the winner of the Commercial Category of NZ Institute of Architects at the Waikato / Bay of Plenty Architecture Awards.
