In the mid 1950’s Tauranga Plumbing worked on projects at Tauranga Girls College, the first block of the RSA building, the top floor of the Armand Hotel along The Strand, the Te Puke Hotel, Matata Hotel, and of course numerous jobs on the Wharf. Like the Port of Tauranga, things were really starting to take off for Tauranga Plumbing.
These days Tauranga is still growing and with that the need for larger commercial buildings. Tauranga Plumbing has been involved with many of the cities larger construction projects and major developments due to reliability and quality of workmanship.
“I was going alright at school but Dad came home one night and said – “You’re only at school for rugby and girls. It’s about time you came down and started work”
Tom McCord to his son Brian McCord.
“On commercial buildings all the sewage pipes were cast iron. Copper came in while I was there but before then it was all cast. Now it’s plastic. The present plumbers do not know they are born!”
