HEB Construction, the successful tenderer for the Gisborne Wastewater Project, is an award-winning, privately owned New Zealand civil engineering construction company.

Founded nearly 30 years ago in South Auckland, HEB operates from nine regional branches undertaking wastewater infrastructure as well as roading, bridgeworks and intricate concrete structures.

It was responsible for the $4.7m upgrade to the Te Maunga wastewater treatment plant in Tauranga and for the Waikato Water pipeline, taking treated drinking water from the Waikato River to Auckland.

HEB chief executive Derrick Adams said this week that many of HEB’s resources would be redeployed from Napier to Gisborne once a major wharf development project for the Port of Napier was completed.

“We expect most of the project management team to come from outside the region but intend to maximise our use of local suppliers and subcontractors.”
