Hawkins Construction

I cannot thank you guys and your crews’ tireless efforts this year. This project has been incredibly complicated from every aspect imaginable, every bit of concrete has been propped/cut/planked out/re-propped/formed/poured/stripped etc and this would not have been possible without all of the hard workers you have had onsite. I’ve said before that United is definitely one of the good guys on site. You have always been self-managing problem-solvers who bend over backwards to make ends meet for us. All of your efforts have not gone unnoticed and we appreciate it very much.

Hi Mik,

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank your crew of scaffies who have been working at the Darfield site these last few weeks. They’ve always been cheerful and helpful, quick, efficient and safe. You are doubtless very proud to have these guys working for you and that pride is well founded.

I would like to pass on my thanks and appreciation for the work Brendan has completed for us this winter shut. Brendon completed every job in a timely manner and ensured that not only Fonterra, but also Eberts, Bmac, NDA and any other contractors they did work for, did not have any delays. Brendon also responded to all requests with a no problem, can-do attitude that was very appreciated.

Hi Mik & Richard

Snip below from our site daily newsletter from one day last week. I was not on site but understand Brendon had a potential issue with one of his jobs and escalated through to the electrical team and a solution was found before possible conflicts arose. Brendon and his teams input is appreciated.

The values we saw Brendon display were “Do what’s right” and “Co-operative spirit” and he also displayed personal ownership and accountability. Please pass this on to Brendon and his team

Hi Mik, Richard & Judi

It has been a real pleasure to work with you and your team since I have been at Darfield.

The crews you have had on site have built a genuine relationship with our teams and the input to our site has been immense.

Every job has been undertaken with skill, and the ability to adapt and work in sometimes challenging conditions is very much appreciated.

Please pass this on to all the team who have worked on site over the years and particularly Brendon & Gerald who have spent their fair share of time here recently. They will be missed.

The snip below was in our daily newsletter today, the values displayed are Co-operative Spirit and Make It Happen, something your team certainly showed.


Thanks and I hope we have the opportunity to work together in the future.

Hi all, 

I am sure most of you are aware by now that the Burwood Hospital Project, in the recent New Zealand Project Commercial Awards, picked up a Gold Medal and the National Award for Health Projects in New Zealand for 2017. This is a great achievement for everyone who has been a part of the project. Thank you again for all the hard work and long hours from all at Leighs Cockram JV Ltd.

The formwork solution engineered by APL Kwikform was quick, easy to handle and did just what we wanted it to.
I would highly recommend the Tifa system and APL Kwikform.

Good Morning to you all. This morning I have observed good safe scaffold erection methods by the United Scaffold Team on the Wet Mix site. The scaffold team is led by Raniera Te Muunu aka Bubba.

Hi Glen - just wanting to say thanks and compliment you and your crew... another round of scaffolding was required due to multiple leaks in my very large skylight - this time the work had to be done from inside my house - last time the scaffolding was needed for its exterior work.

I was especially impressed and grateful for how careful the guys were - it was a very delicate and awkward job given the house's interior design and certainly one 'out of the box' - not your run-of-the mill layout. You all did a superlative job designing what was needed and even the guys from Southland Glass commented how well the scaffolding was done which allowed them to do their work.

I have consistently gotten great customer service from you Glen - always super responsive which is impressive in this hyper build time here in Queenstown, for which I am very grateful. As I said this morning, I know many people are more comfortable complaining and criticising then complimenting and I wanted you and your guys to know I think you all are great.
