In 2018, the Government of Tokelau and New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) engaged Hall to construct four wharf and ramp structures in the remote territory of Tokelau. The team was also tasked with widening and deepening the reef passages leading into the Atafu, Nukunonu and Fakaofo atolls, enabling fishing boats and inter-island vessels to navigate these areas more easily and safely.
The works took into account the expected long-term impacts of climate change in the area and have enabled more reliable ship-to-shore operations.
Proficiency in planning, logistics and stock monitoring was imperative, with the isolated atolls – located 500km north of Samoa – only accessible by sea.
Hall employed approximately 16 Tokelauans and 12 Samoans as machinery operators and labourers as part of the project, training workers in civil construction, working in and around water, batch plant operations, welding and operating power tools and machinery.
