Nor West Contracting Ltd was established in 2012 after recognising a need for general civil, earthworks and land development contractors for the Canterbury earthquake rebuild, to help re-establish a thriving city and surrounding residential and commercial suburbs. Nor West has since grown considerably as they have proven to be a strong, reliable and user-friendly contractor within the wider Canterbury region and throughout New Zealand.

Working with local Iwi and key delivery partners, Nor West now has branches across the North and South Island, operating out of Auckland, Napier, Wellington, Christchurch, and Central Otago. Utilising our suitably proven, reputable subcontractors and permanent staff totaling 120 plus spread over five main departments, Nor West can cover most aspects of any contract while maintaining our management commitment and efficiency-driven focus.

Our Commitment to Health, Safety, Quality, and the Environment is reflected by our ISO, SiteWise, and Totika accreditations.

Each team has been chosen based on established relationships and they all thrive on, at the very minimum:

  • Show Up – Trust
  • One Nor West – Clear common goals
  • Home Safe – Culture of “all questions are good”
  • Anticipate – Decisions get made.
  • Communicate – Everyone contributes.

Our dedicated team of qualified local drain layers, water installers, forepersons, project managers, engineers, managers, and directors work collaboratively as One Team. We take great pride in our work and are proud of our achievements.
