We like to give generously of our resources, skills and time, contributing to or leading initiatives that directly benefit the communities, cultures and economies we are part of. Whether it’s pro bono work for charity or community causes, or collecting for the City Mission, we’re always keen to be positive contributors – in fact, our employees get a day a year to donate to a social good cause or initiative of their choice.
We’re never afraid to get our hands dirty out at the Habitat for Humanity yards, and we don’t keep our ‘Secret Santa’ internal – those gifts are delivered to people who need them more than we do. But, while those small contributions make a difference, we know the biggest value we can deliver is based around doing what we do best: exceptional structural design. We’re always on the lookout for social good projects where our structural design expertise will have the maximum benefit.
On great projects like the Longbush Ecosanctuary, and the Te Rangihouhiri Marae, we’ve made a huge contribution to local communities. Projects like this are some of our most popular, and it doesn’t stop at the design table. A big group of our engineers and drafters even went down to Longbush near Gisborne to help erect the welcome shelter.
