Constructure customers put cherry on top of 10th anniversary cake

The Canterbury Down Syndrome Association initiatives have been boosted by a $12,420 gift from Constructure and its generous customers to celebrate the structural engineering firm’s 10th anniversary.

The company celebrated its 10th anniversary in April by launching a Give-a-Little page with a $10,000 gift and invited its customers to join the good cause.

Constructure founder Cory Bedford said he was excited that his clients got into the spirit of their unorthodox birthday party by gifting an additional $2420 to the CDSA.

“I really want to thank all our customers for their generosity that will make a big difference for a small local charity like the CDSA.”

The Canterbury Down Syndrome Association provides support, education, and advocacy to its members, their families and wider community.

“We are just overwhelmed and grateful that this amazing gift got even bigger,” said CDSA chair person Diane Mulholland.

Constructure Director Cory Bedford hands over a cheque for $12,420 to Diane Mulholland, chair person of the Canterbury Down Syndrome Association and fellow committee member Andrew Oswin.

The $10,000 gift was not chosen randomly but symbolises the target of 10,000 projects the Constructure team wanted to complete by the anniversary date.

Over the past decade, Constructure has steadily expanded to 25 staff members across their Christchurch and Auckland offices.

Their geographical footprint extends across the nation, from holiday homes on Great Barrier Island to Arrowtown, commercial buildings in Auckland & Christchurch, large apartments in Nelson and even projects all the way to Fiji.

Constructure has been part of several award-winning designs and offers extensive experience in commercial and residential projects, as well as multi-units and out-of-the-box non-property projects that require innovative ideas.

Cory is proud of the reputation the Constructure team has created around New Zealand. “But if we look at our recent growth rate, the next 10 years could even be more exciting.”
