Strata set up to ride the construction boom

Strata Group is well placed to be at the forefront of the ongoing economic growth of Hawke’s Bay, which is seeing massive investment in commercial, industrial, residential and infrastructure builds.

With a healthy current and future pipeline of work, Strata Group director Duncan Bruce says there’s been a stronger focus on retaining talent and providing career pathways through to shareholding in recent years.

The business was established by Duncan, Russell Nettlingham and Guy Lethbridge in 2008 and since then has accumulated an impressive portfolio of construction projects both in Hawke’s Bay and beyond.

Having previously completed the engineering design of the Porters Hotel and Village Exchange and more recently the Joll Road commercial development in Havelock North, leading the Sunfruit Orchards Distribution Centre development, Strata Group are currently involved in the construction monitoring for the strengthening of the Hawke’s Bay Opera House as well as civil engineering for multiple residential developments in Hastings, Napier, Havelock North and Central Hawkes Bay.

Prior to COVID-19, director Guy Lethbridge stepped away from the business, opening up shareholder opportunities for three up-and-coming team leaders Dan Joblin, Luke Price and Philip Wilkinson.
