In August 2016 Schick Construction were awarded the Overall Winner (Medium Site) award for its consistent and proactive approach towards self-monitoring and consistently achieving high standards for sediment control and final rehabilitation on the SH3/21 Intersection Upgrade site. 
Staying ahead of the Game 

Schick took possession of the latest four of around eleven Hitachi Excavators it has purchased from CablePrice over the last  three years. 

“One of our guys loved the feel and setup of his old Hitachi with all its extras so much that he was hesitant to step into a new machine. But within two days on the new Hitachi, he didn’t want to go back to the old one. That’s the sort of feedback we like to hear from our guys when we’re making big investments in new gear.”
Hitachi makes up a significant proportion of Schick’s fleet, which now includes more than 90 items of heavy plant and machinery. READ MORE..

Spread of Good Works Recognised

2nd September 2015 
Schick were awarded the Erosion and Sediment Control Special Recognition Award for outstanding company approach and commitment to erosion and sediment controls

The increasing spread of excellent earthworks in the Waikato region has been recognised at an awards ceremony today by the regional council with a series of new special awards for great practices.
Poor earthworks practices can result in erosion, damage to productive land and contamination of waterways.
As part of its work with the earthworks industry to ensure environmentally friendly practices, the council has in recent years handed out annual awards for the best sites. But council chairperson Paula Southgate, who attended the ceremony, said standards had been rising so much that the council introduced the new “special recognition” awards. “It’s great to see such strong buy in from the industry to lifting their performance bar. The council really appreciates the efforts being made.
“So we’re not only recognising those companies that strive to achieve great results on larger projects. We’re also highlighting those companies that are consistently striving to achieve great outcomes generally.”
