Whangarei District CouncilWhangarei District Council

Our work with Whangarei District Council commenced after winning the city’s Premier Parks Contract in 2001.

Toll Stadium .jpgSince then, we have gained facilities maintenance services contracts for a further 620 parks and reserves. In addition to this, we now provide full facilities and maintenance contracts for 26 sports parks (including a first-class cricket ground). Effectively, this means we undertake all parks and facilities services for the entire district.

We have built a solid working relationship with the Council. Our team has been recognised for the development of innovative, colourful displays, impressive ferneries, and the implementation of themes that reflect Northland’s unique culture.

In addition, we were instrumental in helping implement the Council’s partnering-type contracts, as well as workshops with other Council contractors.
