Investing in our industry's future

On Friday, 26 November our team, including a number of apprentices welcomed the Housing Minister Hon Dr Megan Woods and Kāinga Ora’s DCE South Island Paul Commons to one of our Christchurch sites, to celebrate a significant achievement. As a result of our partnership with Kāinga Ora, together with our build partners, we have created over 30 new apprenticeships in 2021, bringing the total over the last three years to just over 100 new apprenticeships. This investment into the industry means more homes built, more employment opportunities created and greater skills available for construction in Aotearoa.
