Hosted by the Aggregate and Quarry Association of New Zealand.

The award in 1997 recognised our company for the work done at our former East Tamaki basalt quarry.

The reinstatement and rehabilitation of the site transformed it into a productive commercial and industrial park. Developed by Stevenson Properties, the site now accommodates a range of modern light industrial buildings in Lady Ruby Drive (named after the late Sir William Stevenson’s wife) and in Barmac Place, the name of which comes from the former crushing plant. This development is a continuation of similar rehabilitation work in the East Tamaki area by Stevenson over many decades.

In an article for the NZ Contractors magazine, the then mayor of Manukau City, Sir Barry Curtis said 

I commend Stevenson on the manner in which they consult with Council and local businesses, and thank them for the tremendous effort they have made in developing difficult land for use by industry. The sensitive approach shown by the company is both innovative and exceeds the standard requirements of the Council.
