Unfortunately, we are now in the middle of Winter, and it seems as though the Winter has been ongoing for nearly all year.
However, while winter is wet and dark, the bright side to our business is that we are in the throes of a large amount of enquiry and tendering that has been lacking over the past couple of years.
Historically the “Year of Election” is a time where enquiry and tendering slow down while everyone waits for whom is to be our next Country’s Leaders. For whatever reason this seems not to have happened yet and does not seem to show any signs of this type of slowing concern in the private sector. There will always be a halt in the Public/Government sectors as politicians try and save their political careers by not being seen to spend money prior to elections.
So may the positivity continue.
This leads me to my next point. We are constantly getting both positive and negative reviews from our clients. I can confirm that we have a lot more positive than negative offered statements made to us constantly and as such Sam, Stuart and I would like to thank all Teak employees for the contribution that you make to Teak and our clients.
As Directors we really feel proud that there seems to be a great feel within the Company, especially with what we have had to press through, over the past number of years with Covid and what that has done to the New Zealand people’s attitudes towards life generally.
There is a real negativity within the overall public domain on an “everyday basis” (attitudes and crime as a result), however, we as Team Teak seem to have pushed through this negative barrier and the feeling within the business is very positive.
Just 2 of many comments from Clients being offered within the past weeks on 2 different projects… We understand the importance of education and the role that schools play in shaping the future of our children. That’s why we are committed to delivering a facility that will provide the best possible learning experience for the students of Waimauku.
We are dedicated to ensure that the construction process is carried out efficiently, safely and with minimal disruption to the community. We will be working closely with the school board and the local community to ensure that their needs and concerns are taken into consideration throughout the construction process.
This is an exciting time for the Waimauku community, and we are honored to be a part of it. We are looking forward to delivering a school that the community can be proud of.
“Team members at our project are a real asset to Teak. They go beyond what we expected, and we feel that we are part of the Teak family as a result”.
“We are extremely happy with this project. I have worked in the industry for 40 years and this is the only project that I have been involved with that there is no arguing. Everyone is moving in the same direction to the benefit of the project. I would expect to see Teak on further projects that I am involved with”.
To let the team understand what we are trying to achieve from a Company direction standpoint… We are really pushing the Business Development and as a wise man once said,
“Without business development there is likely to be no business”
With this in mind Sam, Stuart and I have engaged the full-time assistance of “Harriet Birchall” to which clients in the first instance can contact along with any Teak staff that has any leads can point those important leads towards Harriet.

We hope the weather starts to brighten up as we come slowly into Summer and with this, the opportunities within the Construction Industry replenish to ensure the ongoing success of our Country and our Clients visions.
Stay safe and warm until the sun starts to shine!
