  • Development planning, feasibility, concept and management.
  • Project planning, programming, monitoring & reporting.
  • Estimating, pricing and cost management.
  • Construction services as Main Contractor.

Our Approach

Our relationships in the Wellington market are deep-rooted; with supply chain, subcontractors, designers, consultants, land owners, developers and local council. We are respected and well connected – these positive relationships bring significant value and increased delivery certainty to any new development project.

We are hands-on, where we are personally involved and leverage our extensive commercial experience to ensure projects are successful from inception to completion.

We bring a fresh practical & collaborative approach - fully site-based, the right expertise, and a drive for shared success.

Our Golden Rules

We have a carefully chosen & highly experienced team.

Aoraki’s site management and skilled labour team have some of the best experience in Wellington with backgrounds from the city’s historically biggest and most successful Main Contractor companies. Most importantly, we give our team the trust and autonomy they need to effectively manage construction risk through a practical lens and deliver great buildings.

Keep it simple & effective.

No complicated bureaucracy, no unnecessary overheads, quick decision making.

Keep everyone close to the action.

Our practical construction & people focus sees the entire team physically based on project sites, where Aoraki people are visibly the driving force on the workface, every day.

We operate exclusively in Wellington region, and trade on relationships.

This is the region we know & love, and a local construction market we are deeply embedded in. This means that you get the benefit of the strength of our long relationships with top tier subcontractors; as well as our drive to form a lasting relationship with you.

Be grateful, respectful and remember where we started and why we’re doing this.

We love building, and our vision is to see Aoraki delivering great buildings with great people long into the future. For us, an important part of this includes operating according to our carefully considered Te Tikanga o Aoraki and showing respect for Mana Whenua.

Sustainable Practices

We genuinely care about the impact that our activities have on our environment and the communities in which we are building in. Our sustainable practices are managed through our Environmental Management System based on ISO 1400 which covers environmental management, waste management, resource efficiency, water management and more. We are up to date with, understand and can deliver on Homestar and Greenstar requirements for any project, and are reducing our carbon footprint by replacing our fleet vehicles with hybrid vehicles as we can.

Health & Safety

Construction, by nature, carries significant risk for the Health and Safety of people on and around our sites. The key to managing this risk is good governance ensuring the right people with the right skills are planning and managing the work, and having robust and effective processes to continually identify, review and manage key risks. Our focus is always on driving safe behaviours and culture on our sites and our Health & Safety Manager works across all our sites to ensure this is achieved. We are IMPAC Prequal accredited.
