Our Team

At Rintoul Civil we have an energetic and highly motivated team who enjoy completing projects to the highest of industry standards.

Currently, we have approximately 15 staff on our team with a wide range of experience and skills to ensure we can successfully deliver on any project. A very high average employment duration of 7.25 years signifies the devotion, reliability, experience and commitment that customers can expect us to provide on every job we undertake.

At Rintoul Civil we fully believe the adage “Your staff are your most important asset”. We realise that the personal and professional development of our team is imperative in ensuring the successful delivery of projects, and thus the success of our business. We therefore invest in our staff through comprehensive training programmes, mentoring and coaching. The rewards of this philosophy are inevitably shared with customers through increased satisfaction and better quality service.

Our administration office is based in Kerikeri whilst our operations are centred 25km west in Okaihau. Confining the majority of our business to the upper North Island ensures that clients get local contractors with local knowledge and expertise.
