22 News – Sept ’16

22 News & Quiz

  • TVNZ – opens
  • Cocktail Party
  • New Cadet
  • Quiz – win lunch at Mekong Baby

This month one of our projects was officially launched – TVNZ (stage 2). This was a service intensive project and included the mechanical, hydraulic, electrical and data services. Key challenges were keeping the building fully operational during the works and redesigning existing building services to meet the needs of a modern multi-purpose media space.

What a night! On September 1st Debbie Darling (Chief Purser) and Captain Robert Mannes took our guests on a journey Around the World at our annual cocktail party. Terrific turn out, scrumptious cuisine and beverages from Asia, America, Europe, ….. plus prizes and entertainment made for a FUN night. It was great to catch up with so many clients, colleagues and friends in the industry.

Our international theme for the evening was inspired by past intern Stefan Nel who is currently on the adventure of a lifetime – The Mongol Rally – across Asia and Europe. His team, “Pandamonium” are fundraising for NZ Surf Lifesaving and we would like to thank all those who donated to the cause. They have almost reached their final target – they are just $400 shy.

We welcomed a new cadet on board this month, Thomas Hume. He has joined our mechanical team and comes from a family of architects so is already talking the lingo like a pro!

This month’s QUIZ is designed to foil the Google sleuths. You’ll only know this one if you’ve spoken to the man himself. Last Christmas Nick Donovan and Robert Mannes each holidayed overseas (in different continents). Name 3 countries that Nick OR Robert visited on their trips. Get one wrong and you’re disqualified. Get them all right and you’re in the draw to win lunch at Mekong Baby – yeeeum !  Entries close September 16, send all entries to Jennifer@22degrees.co.nz
