Hawkins has been involved with Keystone Trust since 2013, during which time we have provided students with site visits, access to mentors, and built relationships with fellow sponsors.
Hawkins provides a Keystone Scholarship each year to a student with circumstantial and financial need who has a passion for our industry, enabling them to study at tertiary level – covering fees, course costs, and accommodation each semester.
MATES IN CONSTRUCTION
Hawkins has been working with Mates in Construction since 2019 to encourage positive wellbeing within our industry. The construction industry has the highest proportion of suicides across all sectors in New Zealand and we take this very seriously. We are the only company in New Zealand with five Mates accredited sites and we continue to work towards achieving Mates accreditation across more projects.

Hawkins is a Platinum Sponsor of NAWIC, a voluntary organisation and the leading voice for women in the construction industry.
NAWIC encourages women to pursue successful careers in the construction industry and holds regular events focusing on technical and professional development including the annual NAWIC Excellence Awards.
Our very own Roimata Maihi, Foreperson, was the winner of the Special Merit Award in the Professional Woman of the year – site based category in the 2021 excellence awards.
