Since establishment in 1985, we have developed a range of specialist engineering disciplines including, High Pressure Steel Pipelines, Mechanical Piping and Fabrication, Pressure Vessels, Structural Engineering, Civil Engineering and Bulk Transport for work both in Taranaki, and throughout New Zealand.

Quality and Safety are at the forefront of any project we undertake.

Warner Construction has earned a strong reputation in the engineering sector for producing and supplying a finished product and supporting documentation of the highest standard. This is a culture that has taken many years to build throughout the company and has enabled us to attract and retain staff who share the same passion for quality.

Despite the economic climate over the last decade, Warner Construction have successfully diversified into several other facets of engineering. The warner organisation has tendered, won and managed complex multidiscipline contracts that have involved mechanical & civil engineering, instrument & electrical, insulation, painting and building work.
