After more than three years, the construction fences have come down on Whangarei’s Hundertwasser Art Centre, and you can now see this spectacular building in all its glory. Unfortunately, the pandemic has delayed the public opening of the Art Centre and Wairau Māori Art Gallery until 20 February 2022. Still, you can now walk around the building’s exterior and visit the centre’s Aqua Restaurant & Bar.

TVNZ’s Seven Sharp came down to see what everyone’s been talking about and interviewed our own Darrell Trigg. We reckon he’s wasted on the tools (not that he’s on them much these days) and ready for a new career as a TV star. Our favourite comments are, “Makes you smile and scratch your head at the same time” and “People are just going to be flabbergasted, and they should be. We need more flabbergasting”.

A once-in-a-lifetime Opportunity

The Hundertwasser Arts Centre (HAC) Wairau Māori Art Gallery is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for any construction company. It was certainly a privilege for the team at Registered Master Builders Association company Trigg Construction to be entrusted with the delivery of this amazingly complex project. Managing Director Darrell Trigg explains the concept, where no two windows or doors were built the same and no repeated building patterns allowed, in the April issue of Building Today.



Trigg is a proud sponsor of Wish4Fish. This charity helps people with disabilities or mental unwellness to get out on the water and enjoy the freedom and pleasure of our ocean waters – the benefits we know very well, as mad keen boating and fishing folk ourselves.
