Higgins Projects Division
Our Projects Division is a specialist arm of our business which is responsible for the delivery of major projects such as wind farm infrastructure, airport runway / hardstand construction and targeted road projects.
Our experienced staff are responsible for leading a contract and can draw on the resources of Higgins' manufacturing divisions such as Higgins Concrete and Higgins Aggregates, along with other subcontractors. These companies can be formally subcontracted together which allows Higgins' Projects Division to operate independent of the local contracting operations and will ring-fence the delivery of each specific project.

Wind Farm Construction
Higgins is New Zealand's most experienced civil contractor in the wind energy sector. Our Projects Division has been responsible for the construction of civil works infrastructure for 360mW of wind generation in the past 12 years.

Higgins has provided formal early contractor involvement in most of these projects, which has included civil design review, material analysis, pavement and concrete mix design, environmental and traffic management planning, risk assessment, construction planning, specification, and cost review. Experienced staff have provided specialist construction advice to wind farm developers and consultants on a wide range of proposed wind farms throughout New Zealand.
