All our work also has to comply with the Resource Management Act. This means we have to consider the impacts of our projects on the environment.”

“They work all over New Zealand . Most off them do a lot of driving”

What is one more fact that people reading our newsletter might find interesting ?
“Miss McCormack’s (Jan-Marie’s) son, Lucas, is doing his cadetship with us. That means he works for us while he studies towards his engineering diploma.”
Teachers STRIKE
New Zealand’s schools may close this week as 50,000 primary and secondary school teachers plan to strike.
The teachers need better pay and conditions to keep them in their jobs and to attract others to the profession. (Kiwi Kids News)
