Community

Better places to live and work

Our building and fundraising experience benefits a wide range of community groups, from charities, sports clubs and churches to training and arts organisations. Groups that we work with, sponsor and support include:

HOME OF COMPASSION

The Sisters of Compassion was founded by Suzanne Aubert at Jerusalem – Hiruhārama – on the Whanganui River in 1892. The sisters are committed to delivering “compassionate care” by providing meals, food, and basic needs to those who have very little, caring for the elderly, and providing individual and family support. The sisters seek to bring dignity to the lives of the aged, the powerless and the poor.

We support this long standing community organisation in many ways. One is through active volunteering in the Compassion soup kitchen. We currently have 22 volunteers helping with 20-30 shifts per month.

TANIA DALTON FOUNDATION

The Tania Dalton Foundation, created in honour of the sporting legend whose vibrancy would fill the room, has been established to make a meaningful impact on the lives of budding young New Zealanders and guide them to be their best in life.

The scholarship program selects 12 young women each year and supports them to develop in their chosen sport and make a meaningful impact on their futures and communities. We sponsor one participant each year and this year we are very proud to support Torren Isaako.  Find out more about Torren here.

WELLINGTON SCULPTURE TRUST

“We would like to show our huge appreciation for LT McGuinness’s generous contribution to the sculpture we are installing on Site 9. The LTM team have been brilliant on Site 9. You have been a staunch friend of the Trust over the past few years, and it is not only the financial assistance, but also the peace of mind we get from knowing your team are supervising on site.”

NEW ZEALAND FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS

Running every two years since 1986, the Wellington-based Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts is the nation’s largest celebration of cutting-edge arts’ experiences. From spectacular to small and perfectly formed performances, the Festival has selected artists defined by their skill, boundless imagination and artistic bravery. Each festival we sponsor a different event.

VICTORIA UNIVERSITY OF WELLINGTON

In partnership with Victoria University of Wellington we have established the LT McGuinness Scholarship in Building Science. The scholarship is valued at $40,000 and aims to support talented Building Science students in the School of Architecture.

RYHAVEN TRUST

The Ryhaven Charitable Trust aims to assist families who own their own home but lack the resources to keep it in a reasonably habitable state.

Our apprentices in particular gain some great residential experience working on Ryhaven homes.
