Plumbing Works has a history of working in the health sector having completed project LEO at Tauranga Hospital and path labs in both Whakatane and Tauranga. These jobs are often technical and large scale.

Project LEO, a large-scale project at Tauranga Hospital, came in at a cost of approximately 3 million dollars. The challenge with working on these types of projects is ensuring you don’t disrupt other areas of the hospital.  This takes skill, focus and great teamwork, both with our own team and other contractors.  We’re proud to say that we delivered on these key points.

We installed in excess of 500 sanitary fittings and tap ware, 6500m of copper piping and 3800m of PVC piping on the hospital contract. There’s a lot that goes on behind the scenes and when you need a job to run seamlessly from ordering, to on time delivery of components to efficiency of staff we make sure we deliver.

We have just started work on the Path Lab at the BOP DHB site, which is a four-story building with plenty of design challenges.  We’re up for the challenge because it helps you build a top-performing team who don’t rest on their laurels.  For a reliable, superior service hit contact us today and get in touch.

Schools, universities and Ministry of Education projects are another focus area for us. We have done work on many schools around Tauranga including Tauranga Intermediate, Tauranga Girls High School, Te Puke Intermediate just to name a few. We have also completed a large Chinese learning centre in Waihi that consists of a large number of staff and student dormitories, an administration block, hall, library and other campus buildings.

We have an understanding how school boards work and how the education sector needs to ensure value for money.  We always aim to keep within the set budget knowing there really is no room for maneuver.  Our project management skills carry over into all areas of our business because we know time is money. We’re not just plumbers, roofers and drainage experts, we’re qualified project managers too who can help with the lot.

Having competed over 11 supermarkets in the Bay of Plenty, Waikato and Coromandel area in the last 10 years, it’s fair to say we have heaps of experience.  Pak n Save, New World & Countdowns are a few major projects we have worked on. These jobs are massive and always run to a very strict deadline.  The sooner the supermarket can open, the sooner those tills start ringing.  You can rely on our great team of plumbers, roofers and drainage experts to finish the job on time without any hitches.  Those doors will be open on time when you choose Plumbing Works.

Every project has it’s own complexities so you need solid workmanship.  We’d love to discuss any opportunities with you and your team so if you want to hear more about our successfully completed jobs give us a call.
