Young Kiwi men in the construction sector are taking their lives at an alarming rate. A 2019 BRANZ report on Suicide in the NZ Construction Industry Workforce found that of 685 people who died by suicide in New Zealand in the year to June 2019, 6.9% or 47 of those worked in the construction sector. It's a serious problem that MATES in Construction NZ are determined to do something about it.
Rhys Wasson is a long-time member of Team Trigg. We're super glad to have him on the team as he brings a massive amount of experience and skill from 35+ years working in construction around Whangarei. Over that time, he's managed a real variety of projects. He is currently Construction Manager for the Hundertwasser Art Centre project, a building destined to become one of the region's and New Zealand's iconic structures.
Just for fun, we put our Trigg 10 Quick Questions to Rhys, and this is what he had to say.
Hundertwasser Arts Centre is nearing completion, Marsden Cove Building Centre was recently handed over on schedule, and we're nearing completion of the first 12 commercial units at the Aubrey Business Centre. Across the road on Marsden Bay Drive, construction of a larger building is also in full swing, with the Mt Tiger Business Hub steaming towards its handover date at the end of Q3 2021.
