2015 WINNERS

Garyth Jones

GIB® SUPREME AWARD, WINNER 2015. HAYS CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS $5 – $10 MILLION AWARD, EXCELLENCE AWARD 2015.

Company:Hawkins Construction, Auckland

Project:Te Oro Youth Music and Arts Centre, Glen Innes, Auckland



The number of unexpected challenges on this site could have stretched any programme and project manager to the limit but nothing held Garyth back, he went about all aspects of the build in his methodical and professional way. Difficulties ranged from drawings with no dimensions, specified window suites no longer in production, limited budget that required value engineering, a variety of interested parties which included the local community, adjoining retailers and Iwi.

There were no parallel gridlines and Garyth had to learn how to use CAD to dimension the plans. The design called for a building that snaked down an inclining site and the degree of difficulty was enormous.
