Mates Helping Mates

Young Kiwi men in the construction sector are taking their lives at an alarming rate. A 2019 BRANZ report on Suicide in the NZ Construction Industry Workforce found that of 685 people who died by suicide in New Zealand in the year to June 2019, 6.9% or 47 of those worked in the construction sector. It’s a serious problem that MATES in Construction NZ are determined to do something about it.

Spotlight on Rhys Wasson

Rhys Wasson is a long-time member of Team Trigg. We’re super glad to have him on the team as he brings a massive amount of experience and skill from 35+ years working in construction around Whangarei. Over that time, he’s managed a real variety of projects. He is currently Construction Manager for the Hundertwasser Art Centre project, a building destined to become one of the region’s and New Zealand’s iconic structures.

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

Project Updates: April

It’s all go on-site in Whangarei at the Hundertwasser Arts Centre, as we look to an expected completion date in mid-quarter two, ready for opening to the public at the end of the year. We’ve recently handed over the Marsden Cove Business Centre, and things are in full swing at our Aubrey Business Centre and Mt Tiger Business Hub sites.

395 New Public Houses In Northland

The Public Housing Plan 2021-2024 sets out the Government’s public housing supply intentions for the next four years and provides information about the location and number of an additional 8,000 public and transitional housing places that will be delivered by June 2024 – 6,000 public housing places and 2,000 transitional housing places.

A Word From Darrell

Price is an important part of any project, but more important is what you’re getting for that price. Clients are always after the best value they can get from their construction project or program. The industry and many clients are moving away from the limitations of traditional master-servant project relationships and lowest price tendering towards a more collaborative approach because of the many advantages a partnered approach to project procurement provides all partners.

We’re Cracking On With Projects Here In Northland

Alongside our ongoing work at the Hundertwasser Arts Centre in Whangarei, the team at Trigg and all our subcontractors and suppliers are being kept seriously busy on these three local projects we have on the go right now.
