Fly The Flag 10 November

Share This:

10 September is World Suicide Prevention Day. It’s an opportunity for people in New Zealand and worldwide to raise awareness of suicide and suicide prevention. MATES in Construction has moved its annual Fly the Flag campaign to get behind suicide prevention from 10 September to 10 November due to the recent lockdown that continues to affect our mates in Auckland.  The construction industry has the highest rate of suicide when compared to all other industries in New Zealand – we lose on average one mate a week. The conversation around mental health and suicide prevention for those working in construction is more important than ever, so get behind the cause and Fly your Flag on 10 November to show your support. 

“The MATES flags are a reminder to stop and take a moment to be a mate who will look out for a mate. To take 10 seconds of courage to say, Hey mate, are you OK?”.

Get your workplace or site involved and register an event or order a flag today – stock is limited. This year even the Auckland Harbour Bridge will be lighting up for Fly the Flag!

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.
