“Arrow International (NZ) Ltd are pleased to be in a position to write a letter of thanks with regard to your Health and Safety Co-ordinator, Emily Parata's consistent and thorough submission of Weekly HSE documentation on the Coronet Peak Deck Slab project in Queenstown.

We believe that your continued positive health and safety management on the project will make a difference not only whilst you are working on an Arrow International (NZ) Ltd project but also achieving legal and industry best practice.

Most of all, it's a pleasure to have a subcontractor that takes the lead and overall ownership of the works that your project team are implementing. This makes a big difference to our site team."

Nick Hamlin, Southern DirectorArrow International (NZ) Ltd

“Over the past 5 years at NZSki Coronet Peak, Base Contracting have undertaken numerous major reservoir construction and ski trail earthworks projects on the mountain.

Base Contracting (as Coronet's "preferred civil contractors") have carried out virtually all of the major alpine trail development works, the construction of the Elephant Pit reservoir, base building demolition/civil development and the base building retaining project.

A crucial aspect of all earthworks undertaken at Coronet is the re-vegetation of tussock and alpine plants which is carried out under strict DOC protocols.  Base Contracting have always been particularly careful and focused on successful re-vegetation as part of their contract works.  This is confirmed by the Department of Conservation's continued approval of their work and the amicable relationship NZSki has with DOC.

Please feel free to call me at any time to provide a verbal reference of Base Contracting's work"

Ross Lawrence, Ski Area ManagerThe Remarkables Ski Area

"Hi Julian, just wanted to say thanks for the "team effort" relating to the work completed on Tuesday night/ Wednesday morning at Glacier Helicopters. It was refreshing to work with a team of guys that were all keen to assist as much as possible and this has been reflected in some favourable comments from the BP engineer who attended the site also. Thanks again to the team at Base and we look forward to working with you again in the future.
