Our vision at Piritahi is to change the way people live. We can do this by laying the groundwork at scale and pace and looking after the communities we’re working in as we go.

Piritahi is an alliance of companies formed to speed up the supply of build-ready land. We prepare land for development and deliver new and upgraded infrastructure and amenity on behalf of Kāinga Ora - Homes and Communities. We are working in Auckland Housing Programme large-scale 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 of course - looking after the communities we’re working in as we go.

With a scope of work spanning multiple urban environments across Auckland and an up-to 5-year programme of work, this is a rare opportunity to help change the way build-ready land is delivered in NZ. Surrounded by industry experts across both design and construction, a career at Piritahi is lined with incredible development opportunities.
