About Us

Hickey-Contracting-About_02

Hickey Contractors was established in 1975 when with just a tractor and mower, Stan Hickey started this contracting business that went on to become a thriving household name in the wider Bay of Plenty & South Waikato regions.

Since then, Hickey Contractors has contributed immensely to the development of Rotorua’s infrastructure especially, including surrounding Reporoa, Taupo, Tokoroa, Mamaku, and Western Bay areas.

Hickey Contractors is owned by Seth and Fleur Pardoe,  a moderately sized family owned earthworks civil & drainage business. The business has successfully delivered thousands of civil infrastructure projects since the early days in the 70's, and the old philosophy of "doing an honest days work" still remains the same today.

Our team are keen to help you with your projects whether big or small, there is nothing we can't do and nothing we don't do.

The management team have a solid background in business & construction management, with collectively decades of experience working hands on in the civil infrastructure & construction sector.

We have a collaborative and solutions-oriented approach to working with local businesses, suppliers and clients alike whether Public, Private, Industrial, Commercial, Residential or simply recreational. This includes ECI and design/build type projects, with practical experience in modern construction methods and a proven track record of working with clients and key stakeholders to mitigate challenges involved in working in complex or geothermal environments.

Geoff Kitson joined Hickey Contractors in 2019 as Contracts Manager, and is responsible for day-to-day operational management, programming and sequencing of works, estimating, and procurement. He brings a wealth of experience to the business, with an extensive background in earthworks civil & stormwater drainage  including subdivisions, water & sewerage experience.
