Young Contractor of the Year Finalist


Our very own Managing Director Hugh Johnstone has been shortlisted for the Hayes' Young Contractor of the Year Award 2016.

Hugh has been working hard to grow and develop the business since taking over as Managing Director in 2014. Over this time he has:

  • Undertaken a comprehensive review and update of our Health and Safety systems and policy, including achieving an A grade safety rating from international agency IS Networld.
  • Doubled the size of the company from 6 to 12 and implemented a training and development programme for the ongoing skills and career development of staff.
  • Led a rebrand to reflect our shift from away from a small family business to a dynamic main contracting firm with an ambitious and hard-working young team.
  • In his concurrent role as a Senior Project Manager he has delivered 5 complex civil and building construction projects across the upper North Island in the last 12 months.

This hard work has been recognised in his nomination for the Hayes Young Contractor of the Year Award.  The winner will be announced at a gala dinner on May 28.

– Good luck Hugh!
