Russell in holiday mode is a blaze of pohutakawas, suncream, icecreams, shorts and jandals, so I can’t believe it when, out of the corner of my eye, I spot a queue of mums and kids in the Duke of Marlborough carpark that leads to a mini-exacavtor operated by a familiar sight on industry event days...

    "Emma Jelsma talks to Northland hero Alistair McIntyre about how an accident changed the
    path of his life ...

    It’S 1986, and 25-year old Alistair McIntyre, an early school-leaver (and self-confessed non-academic), has succeeded in building a thriving local contracting business with a number of employees. His future looked set – build up the business, get married, have kids, retire comfortably... The problem with the future, however, is that it never quite works out the way you expect.

    For Alistair, the roadmap of his life took such a massive detour that he had to completely re-evaluate his goals – as one morning, in 1986, while going about his business, a single moment left lasting scars that would forever change his life."

Their latest instalment saw six students from Whangarei high schools progressing to, initially, a six-week work placement programme in a joint venture with Hirepool. This was aimed at providing them with skills and knowledge gained from experiences to take forward to prospective employers.

    As McIntyre says, "In days gone by we all learnt about the industry by riding around with our dads and watching what was happening on job sites. As you got older and showed some aptitude, someone would put you on a machine and instruct you on how to use it. You knew what not to do, as you had spent all that time observing what was happening."...
