Built of Tough Stuff: KWNZ & CKC

If you are looking for a complete concrete package from bare ground to the finished article, you really can’t go past Canterbury Kerb and Concrete (CKC) and KerbworxNZ (KWNZ).




These two entities are sister companies based in Christchurch and they operate together to provide concreting and kerbing services and products to commercial and domestic customers all over the South Island.
“Subdivision concrete packages are our forte,” says company owner Alan Judd. “They are the perfect canvas for us to demonstrate our complete package and our versatility. With kerb and channel work to do, as well as traffic islands, footpaths, car parks and even pedestrian thresholds we can use a range of concreting materials and techniques to complete all works hassle free for our clients.”

The company has left its permanent mark on several subdivisions lately, including Halswell Downs, Barton Fields Lincoln and Prestons Park – a five year ongoing project. Retail spaces – Merivale Mall and the Northlink Shopping Hub – as well as schools, have all experienced the CKC team’s concreting magic with aesthetically pleasing exposed aggregate and coloured concrete. “The Haeata Community Campus at Aranui was a particularly complex project with a range of different coloured concrete patterns required in the design.”

CKC also carries out complete concreting works on residential properties and on rural lifestyle developments. A stunning new aerial video loaded onto the CKC website gives a comprehensive picture of the company’s capability and of its latest projects.

Clever concreting: How KerbworxNZ and Canterbury Kerb and Concrete are making their mark on the South Island

Alan Judd is owner of two thriving Christchurch companies operating in commercial kerbing and infill concrete – KerbworxNZ, and Canterbury Kerb and Concrete.


Kerbing is in Alan’s blood – he took over the business established by his father in 1965. With more than 60 collective years of experience in the current team, all areas of concrete are covered.
KerbworxNZ primarily works for corporate clients on large roading projects or subdivisions. Last year, KerbworxNZ laid in excess of 50,000m of kerbing. Currently employing 12 staff, KerbworxNZ has the capacity to lay more, and can operate all over the South Island having already worked in Blenheim, Queenstown, Timaru and Oamaru. Recent projects include the Flemington subdivision in Lincoln and a major current Christchurch development, the Ngā Puna Wai Sports Hub.
In 2016, Alan purchased Canterbury Kerb and Concrete, enabling him to offer a greater package of services to his existing clients. With a domestic as well as a commercial focus, Canterbury Kerb and Concrete offers excavation, kerbing, and concrete infill using colour and stencilling.
The company’s use of coloured stencilling in concrete infill is a real point of difference – a superior alternative to cobbles and pavers. “CKC offers a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all our clients with full concrete packages.”
A recent project highlight for Canterbury Kerb and Concrete was the New Brighton Pools complex. Hardscaping concrete was completed under a very tight schedule with our clients HEB Construction. Alan says “this project has been a flagship pour for the company – a success from start to finish”.
Look out for the next stage – hot pools in late 2018.
