Building projects in New Zealand are delivered under our Hawkins brand.
Hawkins is New Zealand’s leading construction business. Our team is focused on working alongside our customers to build better communities. Hawkins and Downer’s combined technical and construction management expertise provides proven, whole-of-life solutions for customers’ assets using innovative technology to sustainably deliver outcomes.
Hawkins delivers unique transformational projects across a variety of sectors including education, health, airports, commercial office buildings and heritage restorations. It leads the industry in civic projects including art galleries, event centres, stadiums and community facilities. Complex projects, such as the restoration of the earthquake-damaged Christchurch Town Hall, are our specialty.
We believe in creating stronger communities around us, which is why we partner locally with experts in each region. We work collaboratively with iwi, community, government, educators and trainers to support effective pathways into construction and leadership.
Hawkins invests in technology, innovation and continuous improvement. We have invested in the tools to allow our people to use Building Information Management (BIM) technology on our sites. We use Hololens and augmented reality to allow our team to experience virtual design. We complement this by capturing real-world data through laser scanning and point cloud modelling. The technology makes our operations more efficient.
We use Lean Construction techniques to maximise value for our customers while minimising waste and bringing continuous improvement.
