“By investing in our employees we not only demonstrate a commitment to mitigating health and safety risks but we give employees the opportunity to learn new skills and develop in their careers.  We aim to be an employer of choice which is reflected in our seasonal employees returning to work for us," say Michael.

The award winning team also recently had success in the New Zealand’s Recreation Association (NZRA) Awards held in Wellington.  Auckland’s Tepid Baths Redevelopment was highly commended in the Outstanding Project category.
