Meet the team: Michael Long

Share This:

Mike (as we call him around here) has joined Team Trigg as a Contract/Project Manager. Having worked in the construction industry in New Zealand and overseas for over two decades, he has extensive experience successfully managing small and large scale commercial and technically challenging projects. His focus is on health and safety, design coordination and the pre-planning of every Trigg project, working with our clients and consultant teams to ensure smooth delivery on time, on budget, to a high standard of quality.

Mike lives in Mangawhai with his wife Amy and their two children – Maia, 5 and Koen, 3. After living overseas for 15 years, they moved back to New Zealand two years ago, love Northland and feel lucky to live in this part of the world.

Just for fun, we put our Trigg 10 Quick Questions to Michael, and this is what he had to say.

Cats or dogs? Meow.

Dance floor or karaoke? Karaoke on the dance floor.

Coffee or tea? Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon.

Early riser or early night? The early bird gets the worm.

Good book or Netflix show? Prefer a good book but watch more Netflix.

Talent you wish you had? Pro surfer.

Dream destination?  I haven’t been to the Caribbean, and it looks amazing.

Homebody or adventure seeker? Adventure, but it’s always nice to return home.

Most treasured possession? Would have to be my kids.

Real-life hero? Kelly Slater – 50 years old and still one of the best surfers in the world.

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.
