ABOUT
Slider

Working hand in hand with some of New Zealand’s leading construction companies, Livefirm has been responsible for the concrete construction and internal fitout of over $300 million worth of developments.

In an industry that often seems to run on adrenaline, Livefirm has thrived by removing stress. We work hard to understand what our partners need and then find ways to deliver it. With a highly skilled (and very loyal) team, we can move quickly to resolve scheduling issues and keep projects on track. Our sizeable workforce of skilled tradespeople can be re-deployed as necessary to clear bottlenecks and keep everything on track. We’ll also go the extra mile to ensure designers and other trades have all the information and support they need.

OUR MISSION

Just as every building must be constructed on firm foundations, a construction firm needs to be underpinned by trust. Here are the values that drive our company.

• The expertise it takes deliver a wide variety of construction works.
• A workforce that is reliable, highly trained and focused on safety.
• A working environment that is supportive and safe for all its employees.
• Professionalism and respect towards clients, employees and associates.

We believe that adhering to these values can make us the first choice subcontractor for the construction industry.

HEALTH & SAFETY
Slider

Our goal is simple: To be the safest sub-contractor in eyes of our clients, employees and management.

Safety and quality are two sides of the same coin. A company with a rigorous safety culture will not cut corners on quality, and vice versa.

With this in mind, Livefirm has introduced systems to address the critical areas of construction risk, i.e. working at height, power tool injuries and dust inhalation. Our Health & Safety Risk Committee is equally pro-active in other areas, such as drug testing. We audit every site and employ external consultants as well as our own staff to monitor potential risks.

One of the simplest measures we implemented has proved most effective. Every Livefirm employee, from the most junior to the most senior, has the right to refuse to carry out any task if he or she suspects it might not be safe.

We’re pleased to report that our safety culture has been recognised with Sitewise Green Status (i.e. the highest level of achievement) for five years running.
