Wellington Cenotaph Redevelopment


Built in 1929 to honour soldiers killed in the First World War, Redevelopment of The Wellington Cenotaph, also known as the Wellington Citizens’ War Memorial features improved open space with modular pavements including a staggered diagonal staircase linking the square to Parliament grounds. The upgrade of the cenotaph precinct has de-cluttered the open space while restoring the link with Parliament, in line with the original vision from the 1920s.

Along with the Cenotaph’s close links with Parliament and remembrance of both World Wars, the area’s history goes back to Maori settlement. It’s always rewarding to participate in a project that has so much meaning to a city and pays homage to our national identity. Steintec Paving Mortars trusted in national heritage on another iconic New Zealand project.Steintec – Tradition – Innovation – Evolution in modular pavement construction.
