Queen Elizabeth Park
|Clients||Masterton District Council|
|Job||Queen Elizabeth Park, Masterton|
|Short Description||Topographic Survey and Set out.|
|Detail||Queen Elizabeth Park is a central social point of the Masterton community and the Masterton District Council decided the the park needed a revamp to cater for the changing needs of the community. Tomlinson & Carruthers and Boffa Miskel were commissioned to assess the site and design a park that better met those needs.
Densely planted in mature trees, completing a topographical survey of the site was the first challenge. Then, working with the design team at Boffa Miskel, provisional designs were prepared and presented to the council. The proposals are being phased in with each stage approval.

Genesis Energy Recreation Centre
|Clients||Masterton District Council|
|Job||Genesis Energy Recreation Centre, Masterton|
|Short Description||Certification of indoor Olympic pool.|
|Detail|| In order for the new indoor swimming pool at the Genesis Energy Recreation Centre to be able to call itself an Olympic size pool, strict criteria had to be met. Otherwise, times recorded at competitions could not count towards international FINA rankings.
Tomlinson & Carruthers measured the pool dimensions using laser technology that provided accuracy to within millimetres. The pool is now certified for FINA sanctioned events.

Masterton Police Station
|Clients||Rigg Zschokke Limited|
|Job||Masterton Police Station, Masterton|
|Short Description||Topographical survey & set out.|
When Rigg Zschokke were awarded the contract of building a new police station for Masterton, they needed an experienced team to survey and set-out the footprint of the building and services. This while keeping the rest of the police station site operational. Setting out the new building also required locating and recording existing and new services connections and providing as-built plans to council.

Masterton Golf Club
|Clients||Masterton Golf Club Incorporated.|
|Job||Masterton Golf Club, Lansdowne, Masterton.|
|Short Description||Feasibility, Urban & Landscape Design, Planning, Topographical Survey, Civil Engineering, Land Survey, Project Management of peri-urban residential subdivision around upgraded golf course.|
|Detail||Tomlinson & Carruthers have had a long standing relationship with the Masterton Golf Club on the hill at Lansdowne. When the Board of the Masterton Golf Club approached Tomlinson & Carruthers for ideas to progress the club the team were happy to offer their consultancy services on a pro bono basis. The goal was obvious - the golf club, it's members and the course came first and any development must be to the benefit of those involved in the club now and in the future.
The club owns an envious property portfolio in an urban zoned area with 360 views of the Ruamahanga River valley and the Tararuas. An initial assessment and feasibility was presented to first the Board, then Committees and then all the members recommending an expanded course and new clubhouse funded by residential development along the urban road frontage. Sir Bob Charles then assessed the site and completed the first design to improve the course.
Tomlinson & Carruthers have completed a topographical survey of the site and will present a detailed feasibility to the Board for their consideration. Our team is enthusiastic about the future of the club and look forward to being there at Sir Bob Charles' tee-off.

Each part of the course has panoramic views of the surrounding area. Beyond this green is a clearing able to include housing that will not disturb the views beyond the course.
