So by now you know we love all things building, and you’ve probably got a bit of a vibe that we’re pretty passionate people, passionate about a load of things, one of those things being the part of NZ that we call home – the ‘Mighty Manawatu’ (and it’s surrounds of course).

Needless to say, we’re “doers”, and we like “doing” – and that involves getting behind those People, Companies, Teams, who have passion, drive and are doing things we think are pretty darn cool.

Here is a little snippet of some of the things we’ve got right behind and supported in way of sponsorship over the past few years. We love seeing the Humphries brand being showcased this way!


CLOVERLEA SCHOOL – Bike Track – May 2017

Humphries Construction was proud to sponsor the Cloverlea School in Palmerston North for their amazing new and exciting Bike Track.  

Cloverlea School was the last of six schools to have gained funding from Palmerston North City Council for the Bikes in Schools programme where the 50 Bikes and 300 helmets was made possible by community support and sponsorship by local businesses.

We know this will be a hit and what better way to get the kids at school and in the community involved with some outdoor activity.
