The history of our company development

About Us

Founding Director, Norman Poul Christie, puts the company’s approach to the construction industry this way:

“I look at the company and our staff with pride and know that the basic principles of honesty, efficiency and pride in our work has and will endure.”

iDAC Construction has been servicing the New Zealand and Pacific construction market for over 35 years, providing the ever-changing industry with all-encompassing solutions to multi-storey concrete construction. iDAC Construction Ltd was formed in 1973 with the successful and profitable completion of 43 Spec Houses built between 1973 and 1976. This solid start was the launch pad required for iDAC to start contracting services in 1977, to some of the largest players in the industry. We’ve come a long way since our inception and the iDAC family has grown to include Mike Watkins and Jim Cavanagh on the Management team.

At iDAC Construction we set ourselves apart from the crowd by focusing our business model on the flexibility required by our clients – what does this mean?

It means that in our industry, no two contracts are the same, and therefore no two clients are the same. We offer our services with a firm commercial reality in mind – we are here to provide you with security in your choice of contractor while also knowing that we understand the changing nature of construction projects. We will work with you to adjust to changes, while maintaining our focus on the critical path.
