CAMBRIDGE JOCKEY CLUB, RACECOURSE ROAD, CAMBRIDGE
Cogswell Surveys are proud to provide the design, procurement and construction monitoring services for New Zealand’s first thoroughbred synthetic racetrack.
The Cogswell Surveys team under the guidance of Phil Cogswell (Director) and Rene Nielsen (Senior Civil Engineer) undertook a significant amount of research and visits to Australian synthetic tracks to help produce a world class design at the Cambridge Jockey Club. Phil also has extensive experience in constructing other racetracks in the region, being involved in both the Matamata all weather track and the Cambridge Harness & Greyhound tracks. Cogswell Surveys worked alongside the Cambridge Jockey Club and industry governing bodies NZTR & RITA (formerly NZRB) to lead the procurement, engaging with local civil contractors and international synthetic surface suppliers.
The Cogswell Surveys team are currently engaged to provide construction monitoring and surveying services throughout construction, to ensure the procedures, materials and construction methodology meet the requirements of the design plans and specifications.
Once completed the track will provide a world class horse training and racing facility, with the first race scheduled for May 2021.
