It was a pleasure to host over 30 National Association of Women in Construction NZ – NAWIC (NAWIC) Auckland members on our North Shore Hospital, Tōtara Haumaru site – which when complete, will be a new circa 19,700m² gross floor area (GFA) 4-storey building accommodating a surgical suite, endoscopy suite and inpatient wards.
First up, Project Director, Phillip Helleur welcomed everyone to site and provided a project overview, it was then over to Project Manager, AJ Spicer who took everyone on a site walk, ending with our Commercial Manager, Marie Almandoz (pictured below) who talked about her time working as a female in construction and shared her career story so far!
As a premium sponsor, it was a great chance to see such a good turnout, especially on a particularly rainy Auckland day. NAWIC says “Hawkins have been vastly supportive in sharing innovative and educational information with our diverse range of members and the wider construction industry, welcoming and catering to all our needs during our recent site visit at Totara Haumaru”.
A huge thank you to everyone who attended – we’re already looking forward to the next meetup! You can find out more about NAWIC on their website > https://www.nawic.org.nz/
