TROW Group is one of the largest commercial deconstruction companies in Aotearoa New Zealand. It donates quality construction materials and office furniture from deconstruction projects to iwi/hapu, schools, church groups, and smaller businesses. Remaining materials are shipped to the Pacific to help rebuild and furnish cyclone-prone nations.
Repurposing quality construction materials diverts them from landfill, plus it helps communities and smaller businesses to thrive. TROW Group says this creates a ripple effect that provides opportunities for marginalised communities, creative designers, and future-focused innovators.
Currently the business is focused on Auckland but plans to extend its service across Aotearoa New Zealand and throughout the Pacific. Last year TROW Group invested $70,000 so small businesses could display and sell goods following lockdown.
