Walls go up on Hundertwasser’s iconic Arts Centre

Work on the Hundertwasser Art Centre with Wairau Māori Art Gallery is well underway, and it’s exciting to see the walls go up on one of New Zealand’s most challenging and complex commercial builds. Trigg Construction is the main contractor for the project, and MD Darrell Trigg says, “It’s an amazing thing to be part of as everything is bespoke, no two details are allowed to be the same, and every window in the building is a different shape and size, but I’m proud to say that the Trigg team are once again proving up to the challenge”.

Government ditches lowest price contract model

As of 1 October this year, the Government has ditched its ‘‘lowest price’’ procurement model for construction contracts. The new guidelines –mandatory for 130 government agencies – set out a broader set of considerations for multi-million dollar government contracts which consider the financial health of the construction company, the health and safety of workers and the environmental health of the building. We think this approach will drive far better outcomes for everyone – the Government, industry and the taxpayer.
