This month at Monkeytoe February 2022

Check out what's been happening at Monkeytoe in February in our latest monthly news feature.

A note from Budd

Hi everyone,

It’s been another boisterous start to the year, and not just here at Monkeytoe. Data suggests that every man and his dog has been using this time to invest in building projects.

This might be contributing to a general shortage of building materials in the industry (not to mention the last couple of years of now well-understood supply chain challenges). Fortunately, when it comes to Monkeytoe, our products are in strong supply. We manufacture locally, taking advantage of the resources and well-established supply chains we’ve been building for years – so with a factory stocked to the brim, there are no risks to your next project.

Little wonder we’re looking forward to 2022 and helping our clients work on exciting and diverse architectural, building and design projects. We’d like to tease some big projects coming up, such as: Project Kelly with Ignite Architects and Haydn & Rollett; some great work with Auckland’s Middlemore Hospital, with Klein and Savoy Construction; Costco with Woodhams Meikle Zhan, and Hadyn & Rollett; and the highly anticipated new lab for Canterbury’s Lincoln University, which will include a massive 600sqm XBEAM platform.

Watch this space for those projects, and dive on into the rest of our quickfire newsletter to find out more about what’s been happening at Monkeytoe this month.

Giving back to where it’s needed

We’ve been privileged to have been able to donate to three exceptional charities recently.

The first is the Little Fighters Charitable Trust, who offer support to families who have a child with a life-threatening illness or a parent with a life-threatening illness that affects their kids. Whether through monetary or non-financial aid, the Little Fighters help families where and how it’s needed.

Secondly, St John New Zealand are in need of funds to support their new MIST teas and in particular, the dedicated MIST vehicles which enable them to set up field hospitals at the frontline of serious, large-scale emergencies (such as Cyclone Dovi). Monkeytoe were able to make a contribution directly towards purchasing Taranaki’s new MIST vehicle that will help them send a truckload of help to the next major incident – and save lives.

And last but not least, we donated to the Open Home Foundation/Te Whare Kaupapa Āwhina of New Zealand, which helps every child grow up in a secure, loving family and receive a depth of care that will help them flourish throughout their lives.

Choosing Monkeytoe means we’re able to continue giving back to these great charities and more – so thank you for all supporting Monkeytoe and our values.

The Fastest Bridges in Town

Staying on Cyclones, in particular Cyclone Dovi which battered NZ recently, downing trees and uprooting structures threatening vital access infrastructure for people.

Because of have strong supply chains and well-stocked factory, we are able to design, manufacture and install replacement bridges – or help you develop a brand new one – in as little as six weeks. Let’s help you get access to the most difficult of places simply and safely with Monkeytoe.
