Our Awards & Accreditations


Demolition Best Practice Project under $1M - 2019 

This award is for Demolition Projects under $1M and was won for the demolition of the Christchurch District Health Board's Diabetes Building on Hagley Avenue. This project involved soft strip, cut and crane demolition and high reach excavator demolition. It was a technically challenging job due to its proximity to other hospital buildings and the fact that there was a large oxygen storage tank located adjacent to the building. 




Environmental Award - 2018 

Taggart won the CCNZ Environmental Award in recognition of environmental elements across Glassworks, Wairewa Canal Bridge Site works and the Tui Stand Demolition.  On the redevelopment of the former Crown Crystal Glassworks, the site was managed so the contaminated material was able to be safely contained on-site. The Wairewa Canal Bridge project we had to be conscious of native and endangered wildlife that live in the area. When demolishing the Tui Stand at Lancaster Park we achieved a 99.8% recycle rate.

Most Progressive Company - 2018 


The judges observed a quantum shift within Taggart Earthmoving’s approach to and execution of its’ contracts from 2017 to 2018. They have developed a strong management team which provides the resource and expertise to undertake multi-disciplined and challenging projects. Their integration of environmentally sustainable methodologies and quality focus into the everyday operations provides a true “win-win” outcome. Rebranding, and achieving quality outcomes, sends a very tangible message to the community that things have changed at Taggart's.
