Carpenters for stadium to be mostly local
By David Loughrey
Otago tradespeople should be doing the lion’s share of carpentry work at the Forsyth Barr Stadium in Dunedin, despite the largest contract going to an Auckland company. Carisbrook Stadium Trust chairman Malcolm Farry yesterday said while the contracts were yet to be finally signed off, it was expected there would be four subcontractors doing the work, three local, and one from Auckland.
Earlier this month, it emerged one contract had been let to Auckland company Wallace Construction without the knowledge of the trust, bypassing an agreed process between the trust and main contractor Hawkins Construction.
Dunedin Venues Management Ltd (DVML) chief executive David Davies was considering putting toilets, either permanent or temporary, at the west stand, where none were planned.
