Spotlight on Rhys Wasson

Share This:

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.

As Construction Manager, Rhys manages all of our site teams and on-site functions, including the procurement of materials, subcontractors, health and safety, client requests and program monitoring. He also assists our project managers with cost control.

When he’s not on-site, Rhys loves spending time with his grandchildren, getting out on his boat to fish and dive, and in his veggie garden. He’s also a keen sports spectator.

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

Cats or dogs? Most definitely dogs. I have 2.

Dance floor or karaoke? Neither really, but I have been known to participate with a few beers on board.

Coffee or tea? Definitely coffee.

Early riser or early night? Early riser during the week, with a sleep-in on the weekend.

Good book or Netflix show? Netflix. No bloody ads.

Talent you wish you had? Happy with the talents I have.

Dream destination?  Visit my daughter again back in Rome, where she lives.

Homebody or adventure seeker? Homebody for sure. Always something to do around home or at my daughter’s place. It’s the price you pay for being a chippie

Most treasured possession? Everything I’ve got.

Real-life hero? No one springs to mind.

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.
