South by Degrees

Starry starry night… A great night was had by all on August 2nd. A late Matariki celebration – inspired by Southern skies saw us catch up with many of our clients last week. Rave reviews were received of the pork belly, whitebait fritters and macadamia chocolate fudge. We went all out, offering a range of South Island spirits, liqueurs, craft beers and wine to sample – along with our own 22Brew made with Southern hops. Our annual party is a way to say thanks and we appreciate your support. Thank you to everyone who attended and sorry to miss those who couldn’t make it.

New Faces – just off the boat

Joining our Hydraulics team this month is Erik Venter – recently arrived from South Africa. Erik was a Team Leader and mechanical and hydraulics engineer in Pretoria and he and his wife are building a future in New Zealand. We’re delighted to have such a skilled and enthusiastic new team member.

22 Degrees Mission

Since we’re nearly twenty years old the team decided to look at what we stood for and where we were going. So we discussed who, what, why and how … and identified our unique culture, core values and what we wanted our future to look like. Over the next while, we will share some of our thinking and plans with you. To kick off, this is our Mission Statement.

Empowering our people to help your people create great buildings.

We wanted our clients to be front and centre. Our top priority is to help them achieve their vision. To do this 22 Degrees is committed to ensuring our team is mentored, trained, and given the support they need to deliver their best. Check out our short dynamic video which sums up 22 Degrees … The first six people to answer the question below will win a bottle of Otago Pinot Noir, a pack of craft beer or a mini Farro gourmet food hamper.

REVIT Modelling – leading the way

22 Degrees has offered our clients Revit modelling now for the past couple of years. We have a team of “champion users” across all services and have introduced weekly Revit training for our engineering and design staff. We continue to provide AutoCAD services for ArchiCAD users and those who prefer 2D drawings.

Revit is now the norm for many architects and we’ve noticed more contractors requesting Revit modelling of building services. They see the advantage of identifying clashes before they get to site – saving time and cost. At 22 Degrees we’ve seen huge benefits in using Revit around coordination and we’re geared up to meet the increasing demand.
