Hawkins has over sixty years in the delivery of construction projects in New Zealand, and in this time we have witnessed the tourism sector grow to become a major driver of the New Zealand economy.
We also recognise that world class cities and communities are punctuated by great cultural and civic amenities, and Hawkins Construction has been extremely fortunate to be at the forefront in the construction and restoration of some of the great New Zealand public buildings.
Through first hand experience we have also seen the developing sophistication in the different types of properties and assets being developed to meet both local and international demand for quality tourism and cultural infrastructure.
Our experience in building tourism and cultural facilites is broad and ranges from:
Unlike other sectors within the construction market that are driven by conformity, standardised design and strict commercial considerations, tourism and cultural projects are always unique in their scale, scope and degree of difficulty.
From a construction perspective, these projects are always unique, and each requiring a different skill, delivery methodology and understanding of risk.
However, we also understand that what they share in common is the need to provide the visitor or guest with a truly unique experience and exemplify our client’s brand and quality standards.
It is with this in mind that we approach all of our tourism and cultural projects using an integrated partnering philosophy.
In our experience we can add the most value when we work with the developer and / or operator early in the design phase to provide robust and innovative construction and design management thinking so that the vision and goals for the property is realised in the completed building and fit out.
We also pride ourselves in being able to work effectively and efficiently in live 24/7 environments to deliver complex construction projects at minimum disruption to property operators and their guests.
Hawkins Construction’s record in delivering tourism and hospitality projects throughout New Zealand is second to none, and we are fortunate to have worked for some of the great international and national tourism brands.
