Piritahi streamlines land development, laying the groundwork for neighbourhoods that are better to live in and homes that are more affordable.

About Piritahi

Piritahi specialises in land development. We get government-owned land ready to build new homes on. We also design and construct new or upgraded infrastructure, parks and public spaces.

Piritahi enables more homes – both state and private – to be built faster for New Zealanders.

what we do

Piritahi prepares land for development and delivers new and upgraded infrastructure and amenity on behalf of Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities. We are working in Auckland Housing Programme development areas where state-owned land is being better utilised for new, warm, dry, healthy homes.

Our responsibilities include detailed civil design and construction; the removal of old houses; land remediation; applying for consents related to earthworks and infrastructure; construction of roads, parks and utilities, and looking after the communities we’re working in as we go.

Why Piritahi?

Land is a big component of the cost of housing. Piritahi was formed to bring together industry experts and focus on streamlining land development. We're combining our skills and experience to free up constraints around building and help make housing more affordable.

We also care about delivering high quality infrastructure and public amenity that raises residents' standard of living, helping to create neighbourhoods in which communities can thrive.

Who We Are

Piritahi is an alliance of companies formed to speed up the supply of build-ready land. We're working on the Auckland Housing Programme's large-scale developments overseen by Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities.

Kāinga Ora's urban development team masterplans the developments Piritahi is helping to deliver, and is both a member of the alliance and its sole client.
