Spotlight on Marlene Trigg

Share This:

Marlene Trigg is the woman behind the scenes at Trigg Construction. Based at Trigg HQ, Marlene is always ready with a friendly greeting on the phone or at the door, or a freshly brewed coffee. There you’ll find her quietly oiling the wheels of a rapidly growing business and taking the lead on financial administration and office management.

The business keeps Team Trigg pretty busy. But when they do get the opportunity, Marlene and Darrell love to travel the world, climbing stairs for charity, supporting each other’s endeavours and exploring new places – memories made all the sweeter when daughter Amy can join them. Back home, Marlene enjoys getting outdoors fishing and hiking or curling up indoors with a good read.

Just for fun we put our Trigg 10 Quick Questions in front of Marlene and this is what she told us.

Cats or dogs? Cats.

Dance floor or karaoke? Dance floor.

Coffee or tea? Tea.

Early riser or early night? Early riser.

Real life hero? Every New Zealander for getting it right with Covid-19 lockdown.

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.
