Our Story


We’re a small company doing big things


A small, family-owned business, we pride ourselves on our hard working mentality and our commitment to quality.

Our company, Nicholls Earthworks & Drainage, began with Alister. Having accumulated in-depth knowledge and industry-experience, working on and managing an array of projects over a number of years, he decided to create his own company, built on honesty, professionalism and hard work.

Over the past few years, the company has grown rapidly – both in the size of the team and the scale and scope of the projects.

While we evolve, we take care to maintain our company’s integrity and ensure all new team members share the same values, and dedication to delivering the highest standards of work – whatever the project.

Quality you can rely on

Based in Cambridge, our subcontracting services are relied upon throughout the Hamilton, Bay of Plenty and Waikato areas. We give every project our absolute best, whether it’s installing pump stations and deep drainage systems, earthworks projects, or completing all aspects of a subdivision. 

As a pre-approved contractor for a number of councils across the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regions – including Waipa District Council, Hamilton City Council and Tauranga Council – we are a trusted company of choice; depended on for our reliability and hands-on industry expertise.

No feat too great

An integral part of our company ethos is the embrace of challenge. We thrive on the more complex jobs, and as we grow, we are able to take on more and more large-scale, demanding projects.

We understand that no two projects are the same, and that unforeseen challenges and last-minute developments are the very nature of this work.

That’s why we remain adaptable, rising to challenges as they emerge and employing innovative problem-solving wherever it’s needed.

We’ve never walked away from a project – and we don’t intend to.

We pride ourselves on our partnerships with clients and lasting customer loyalty

At Nicholls Earthworks & Drainage, we’re committed to providing a service that customers can be confident in – both in the meeting of deadlines and the completion of work to the highest quality. That’s why our clients keep coming back for more.

We’re a small enough company for customers to know that they will get a personal service, but a big enough one for them to be confident that we will provide the expertise, team and equipment to get the job done, and get it done well.

From start to finish, we partner with our clients to understand how we can help accomplish their projects and deliver the best possible solutions.

By maintaining relationships based on honesty and trust, and always going the extra mile (and then some) we ensure all of our customers are fully satisfied with the work we produce.
