Our Story

NewUrban Group brings to the table the established commercial and development skills of two respected Christchurch based businessmen, John Fairhall and Bert Govan. With successful projects around the South Island and a nationwide business network that includes investment in Auckland and Australia, along with business links into China, the partnership with a major Chinese construction group Huadu International was a logical next step.

Their expertise and knowledge provide NewUrban Group the ability to deliver international standard projects with a high degree of technicality and skill.
