Te Korero – Our Story

W’akamaiangi means “to cause to rise up”.

This expression not only captures what the construction, engineering and supporting sectors do as they lift buildings and infrastructure from the ground. It also encapsulates the work that Building Wellness Taranaki does to lift the wellbeing of the sector’s people and their whānau.

The protective hands of our logo symbolises the homes and buildings the construction sector create for our community, whilst also mirroring the Taranaki Maunga that gives our region its unique identity.
