Warwick Rhodes Contractors Ltd, better known as Rhodes for Roads is a privately owned civil construction company based in Warkworth. It was established in 1985 by Warwick and Katie Rhodes after a decade working for the Rodney District Council. It was there where Warwick built his reputation as a leading grader operator and gained much knowledge of not only the construction industry but the Rodney area.
Rhodes for Roads is now a well established and highly experienced construction company. The company proudly boasts a modern fleet of well maintained truck and trailers, excavators, graders, rollers and loaders of varying sizes. Four water carts also provide water for both the community’s needs and are on call to the demands of the Warkworth and Mahurangi East Volunteer Fire Brigades. We also now do water for the Wellsford and Matakana fire brigades
Forming the backbone of the company is the 40 permanent staff that prides themselves on being multiskilled and able to relate to the local area. This is reflected in the high quality of work produced and the conscientious manner in which the work is undertaken.
Rhodes for Roads has earned an enviable reputation as a company who consistently produces top quality results no matter how small or large the job is. Its reputation extends from the Far North District through the Rodney District to the greater Auckland area. This has been achieved by following the company motto:
“Do it Once : Do it Right”.
As a result the company is Telarc Q-Base registered for quality control and management.
Over the years Rhodes for Roads has played a major part in many large projects including the North Western Motorway construction, Pauanui Waterway development, State Highway pavement rehabilitation and Forestry Roading throughout Rodney and abroad. It has also established itself as a leading small to medium job contractor such as driveway construction, dam and pond formation as well as building site preparation.
Not only does the company pride itself on its workers but it also has much satisfaction in supporting the local community organisations.
