Property deconstruction and removal

Vacant properties on Tī Rākau Drive and William Roberts Road have been deconstructed or removed. Many items from them have been given a new purpose in the community in keeping with our focus on sustainability. Fence palings, floorboards, windows, sinks, ovens, carpet, insulation, plants and bricks have been reused instead of going to landfill.

Here is a video that gives an insight into the project team’s support of the local community and commitment to working in a sustainable way.
