Cook Brothers Community

He Rōpū Kotahi e hiahia ana ki te tūtaki i te ao, ki te panoni i te ahumahi hanganga, ki te whakaū i a mātou hei kaiārahi ā-motu.

One Team with the desire to take on the world, transform the construction industry and cement ourselves as a national leader.

Over our fifteen years and counting, Cook Brothers have held on to our core values, ensuring that we work together, develop relationships, and care for each other, our clients and the community. 

Giving back is our way of ensuring a more sustainable future for us all. An outlook guided by the recognition that mā ngā mahi o tēnei rā, e hanga te āhua o āpōpō, what we do today, defines our tomorrow.

We are committed to the Sustainability principles of Kaiārahitanga Leadership, whereby we recognise our role as leaders for the potential to do well by doing more good and Manaaki Hapori Community Care, in which we respect and support the communities where we work.

In 2021, we launched Cook Brothers Community, a way for us to reach out and offer assistance through grant/funding support, professional advice or mentorship.

So far, we've sponsored wheeled legends the Ōtautahi Rollers, services for tamariki including Parent Aid, the Child Cancer Foundation, and the Special Children's Christmas Party. We've helped sports teams such as the Skycity Stampede, Otago Nuggets, Tai Tapu Cricket Club and the Old Boys Collegians Cricket Club up their game. We've planted trees and sponsored flights with the Auckland Rescue. For us, it's about keeping in touch with our Kiwi values, staying true to our roots, and giving back to the communities that give us so much. If, in any way, we can help - we will try.

We will be offering another round of funding in late 2022. More details to follow.
