Pushing Ahead for Northland

In our view, non-residential building in the Northland region seems to have bounced back post-COVID relatively well. Indicators are that non-residential sector activity will peak in the first quarter of 2021 and drop off from there. As always, many factors contribute, but COVID is the biggest in recent times. The strong bounce-back we’ve seen can be largely attributed to current projects that are yet to be completed, but once these are finished there seems to be some reluctance to start the next wave.

We’ve personally experienced this ourselves. A couple of substantial projects have been put ‘on hold’ for now, and being design-build projects, even if given the green light, are still a long way from materialising on site. “Marlene and I are confident that between shovel-ready projects and those supported by the government’s Provincial Growth Fund, that there is enough of a pipeline to hold a steady course into the future,” says Darrell. “So much so, that we’ve signed up two new mature apprentices! It’s exciting times for us and our two newest teamsters looking to formalise their skills and training.” For us, it’s time to keep pushing ahead and actively contributing to the capability and future growth of the region.

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.
