As an industry that employs large numbers of men, the health of our workforce is a hugely important issue for the sector. Master Builders NZ have sponsored and supported Men’s Health Week since its inception, to help get the message out to men to proactively take care of their health, and break down some of those macho mantras that might prevent men from getting regular health checks.

Read Darrell’s Building Today article Personal Warrant of Fitness – Get yourself a check-up! It looks at why and how to take better care of your health if you’re a kiwi bloke and the importance of spotting signs and making time for self-care.

What’s your score? Darrell recently took the ‘What’s your score?’ test on the Men’s Health Week website. His score was 46, which indicated he needed to book in for a yearly check with his GP and discuss age-appropriate health risks. It only takes a few minutes and prompts you to think about some important questions. Why not take the test today, or give the important men in your life a nudge to jump on and take it.

Men’s Health Week NZ Ambassador, Mark Sainsbury and Darrell visited The Cafe to chat with Mel Homer about the health of our male population. They offered some fascinating statistics about why we should take notice.

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.
