PTL staff proudly provided essential structural engineering for the Mintaro hut, a striking addition to the breathtaking Milford Track. This project demanded intricate engineering to ensure durability and comfort.

The Mintaro hut’s modern open-plan design welcomes tired hikers, offering refuge in the face of harsh Milford weather. With challenging conditions in mind, our team crafted a structure to endure the region’s infamous elements.
The remote location posed logistical challenges. Helicopter transport was employed for swift deliveries, with our expert PTL team carefully planning connections and materials.

PTL’s involvement in this project exemplifies our unwavering commitment to innovation, durability, and creating spaces that enhance the human experience amidst the most demanding of circumstances.
