Fences down at Hundertwasser

Share This:

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”.

Got a few minutes? Check out Darrell and the team on Seven Sharp here.

Are skyrocketing construction costs here to stay?

Clients old and new have been asking us what’s up with skyrocketing construction costs and where we think things will head – up, down or stay much the same. Like you, we don’t have a crystal ball so we can’t see with any certainty where things will go. So, we asked Jeremy Blake, Associate Director – Quantity Surveying at Hampton Jones for his expert opinion. Here’s what he had to say.


Trigg Sports Awards

The Bream Bay Sports Awards were held in the Waipu Celtic Barn – a Trigg construction – on Friday 31 March. Ex-Bream Bay College head girl Laura Adams was the guest speaker on the night. Proud supporters and sponsors of this annual event that celebrates the success and hard work of our local sports people and teams, this is always a highlight on the Trigg social calendar.
