Who Are We?

FDS also has been a valued subcontractor to Schick Civil and Downers Construction.

We have also operated internationally completing a significant project for the Kingdom of Tonga – the Teufaiva Stadium redevelopment to international standards, including the establishment of an athletics track to IAAF standards. 

As is evidenced by a number of the projects we have successfully completed, FDS prides itself on being at the forefront of industry and international trends to ensure all client needs are met with contemporary best practice solutions. 

Importantly, the company has a number of health & safety qualifications including: Impac Pre-Qual, Toitū (formerly Enviromark), Site Wise (Green), Site Safe, SHE Software and we are currently working to be accredited with ISNet World.  We also ensure all kaimahi are Police vetted to ensure we are able to undertake projects at schools throughout the country.
