We’re doing things differently

Piritahi specialises in land development. We’re an alliance of companies working together, combining our skills and expertise to prepare build-ready land faster and more cost-effectively. We also design and construct new and upgraded infrastructure, parks and public spaces - laying the groundwork for neighbourhoods that are better to live in.
We’re laying the groundwork for

Land is a significant component of the cost of housing. Our alliance model makes it faster and easier to develop land for housing, freeing up time and money. Here’s how we’re doing it:

  • Building strong working relationships with Council-Controlled Organisations
  • Combining the skills and resources of our member companies
  • Working across multiple large-scale development projects simultaneously

We’re modernising old, outdated infrastructure and increasing capacity to meet the needs of Auckland’s growing population. This includes:

  • Separating combined stormwater and wastewater networks
  • Upgrading transport infrastructure like roads and footpaths
  • Undergrounding telecommunications and power lines

We’re helping to create more connected communities for locals to enjoy greater accessibility to amenities, facilities and each other. We are:

  • Constructing new and upgrading old roads and footpaths
  • Upgrading public parks and communal green spaces 
  • Improving convenience and accessibility to transport routes and public amenities

Previous building practices mean there's work to do to make some sites ideal to build and live on again. Higher-density living also requires better transport infrastructure. That’s why we are:

  • Safely dealing with old building materials like asbestos and lead-based paint
  • Remediating land on residential building sites 
  • ‘Pedestrianising’ roads and constructing alternative transport links

An increasing body of evidence suggests living close to green spaces is good for our wellbeing and sense of community. So we’re doing things like:

  • Upgrading parks and public facilities
  • Restoring health to natural amenities such as Te Auaunga (Oakley Creek)
  • Constructing walkways such as the Awataha Greenway in Northcote

Piritahi is the Kāinga Ora Urban Development team’s civils alliance partner. Work is currently underway in Northcote, Roskill and Oranga where we’re preparing the land to build and live on and designing and constructing new infrastructure and amenities.
