We are TROW


TROW Group is one of the largest commercial deconstruction companies in New Zealand and is the industry expert in delivering full project, lifecycle services, salvaging hundreds of tonnes of construction materials every year.

We work to create a more sustainable construction sector and repurpose over 90% of the materials we salvage, to improve social outcomes and enable community projects locally and in the Pacific Islands.


Our greatest strength is our people. As experts in deconstruction, development and civil infrastructure, TROW Group invests heavily in training, innovation and technology to ensure our people are continuously improving and striving to exceed the best industry standards.


TROW Group believes there is huge value in supporting a circular economy and has repurposed thousands of tonnes of materials including over 500 tonnes from five major Auckland Council projects, trained, improved literacy skills and provided employment for over 1,000 people including the 50 jobs created for local youth, and provided valuable materials to community projects in New Zealand and the Pacific Islands.
