The Inlet Road project, situated in Takanini, involved the construction of a small development of units for commercial and industrial use, adding more buildable land opportunities to this thriving district which is growing in popularity as an industrial hub servicing Auckland and the greater North.


Originally this project was designed using an alternative system. When project engineer Peter Hill, attended the Cirtex Allan Block Seminar with Allan Block President Tim Bott, an Allan Block retaining wall system was considered and deemed the best solution for the commercial development.

The Cirtex Technologies team worked closely with the Hill Design Engineering team delivering training of the Allan Block Walls software, reducing risk of design failure and facilitating best practice at every design phase.


To ensure the client’s satisfaction and compliance Cirtex staff were present on site at critical installation stages. The communication between Summerville Bros and Cirtex was consistent throughout the project, staff were available to respond to any concerns, questions and doubts the client may have had around specific design criteria.

The products used provided the following benefits to the project:

  • Created a functional platform for future commercial buildings
  • Added higher aesthetics and value to the property
  • A powerful, advanced and easy to use design software
  • A cost-effective, long lasting solution
