Civil engineering is the largest area of focus for our team, involving planning, design, construction and maintenance of infrastructure assets. Facilities might include buildings, bridges, roads, and structures for water supply and wastewater and disposal systems.
Civil engineering projects which we have been involved in are all around New Zealand. Many of the projects worked on involve application of multiple skills to develop solutions that are unique and represent added value to the clients and the communities in which they are located.
We have particular expertise in land development engineering to ensure cost effective solutions are provided to meet the ever increasing technical demands on greenfield development and high density infill projects.
Structural engineering can be found across a wide range of projects undertaken by the Maxim team.
Our Chartered Professional Engineers undertake a wide range of work from the residential, commercial, industrial, civil, and rural sectors.
Stormwater Management Systems Design
The management of New Zealand’s water resources is currently facing some significant pressures. These include:
Urban growth and its associated increase in water demand and stormwater management
Intensive farming practices and the consequent water demands and effluent disposal
Greater environmental awareness and the desire to protect the special environment we live in
A possible increase in extreme droughts and floods due to climate change events, causing re-evaluation of design criteria
Increased need for water infrastructure including water and wastewater treatment plants, stormwater reticulation, flood and drainage schemes and hydroelectric schemes.
Maxim has the specialist skills to help manage these pressures, from policy development and catchment management planning to water infrastructure design and implementation.
Managing New Zealand’s water resources has become more contentious, litigious and technically challenging over the last ten years. It is an increasingly complex discipline, which our’ team is well prepared to meet. Our specialists keep up to date with the latest development in standards, policy and funding.
We can provide teams of highly qualified personnel to complete water resource management projects of any type or size. These include:
Hydrological studies, derivation of peak flows and minimum flows
Floodplain management, urban and rural flood protection
Monitoring and improving water quality
Surface groundwater allocation
Catchment management planning
River and pipe system modelling
Water, wastewater and stormwater upgrading
Wastewater Treatment Systems Design
We are recognised for delivering high-quality, cost-effective wastewater treatment solutions.
Maxim has the expertise to manage all stages of wastewater treatment, disposal, and system management, from strategic planning and design to construction supervision and post-commissioning support.
The in-depth knowledge of our team covers all forms of treatment, disinfection, and biosolids management. This experience includes high technology MBR-, SBR- and UV-disinfection, wetland treatment and land application. With our unique mix of operational and technical experience, we offer specialist design solutions for on site and small community schemes.
Wastewater managers must operate in an increasingly stringent legislative environment. We can assist with meeting legislative responsibilities. We provide expert advice and services for AEE’s, mitigation options, monitoring for compliance, consultation programmes and consent applications.
