The safety of people on or near Hawkins sites is paramount. Everyone has the right to work in a safe and healthy environment and to return home safely at the end of each day.

We believe that an empowered culture of health and safety amongst staff, subcontractors, clients and our project communities are what drives success.

Our commitment to health and safety is resolute: from senior leadership through to our staff and partners on the ground. We have a dedicated health and safety team who proactively support employees, subcontractors and other parties to minimise critical risks.

And we’re continually striving for improvement in health and safety, within Hawkins and within our industry. Our commitment includes:

  • Foundation member with Site Safe New Zealand attaining tier 3 status ‘Leadership in Safety’
  • Signatory to the Canterbury Rebuild Safety Charter
  • Working with our parent company, Downer, to gain the next level in Health & Safety
  • Embracing technology and its role in streamlining health and safety processes


At Hawkins, we are all about delivering great projects together.

As a passionate and forward-thinking team, we are focused on service and delivery. By aligning ourselves with your needs we will create the best delivery outcomes for you.

A project that meets or exceeds your expectation. A project that’s delivered on time.

A project that complies with all relevant legislation, particularly the Resource Management Act, the Building Act and the Health and Safety at Work Act.

We develop solutions that add value through the lifecycle of your asset, not just during the build phase. Our proven whole-of-life approach will deliver more for you and your communities for longer: more value throughout the life of your asset.

As part of our drive for continuous improvement, we regularly review and update our quality system which has been certified by Telarc Ltd as conforming to the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) AS/NZS ISO 9001 Quality, 14001 Environmental Management and OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety Standards.



By being better aligned with you, we can deliver a better service.

Early collaboration can lead to better value solutions. Our smart, passionate people are always looking ahead, seeking new ways to do things, systems and methodologies to propel you further forward.

Everything we do is aimed at moving ahead - investing in our future, ensuring we are forward-thinking in our approach, then developing and improving our delivery skills - creating the best outcomes for you.



By investing in technology, innovation and continuous improvement, we achieve better outcomes for all of our communities.

Through better relationships, early involvement and collaborative working - and by investing in technology, innovation and continuous improvement, plus training and safety - we will achieve more value, and better outcomes for all of our communities. By working together we will get further ahead.

Our commitment to our clients and our communities is to exceed industry environmental best practice and also to do what’s best for the communities in which we live and work.
