About HILLCON Group

HILLCON Group encompasses our three companies; HILLCON Structures, Hill Construction and Coresteel Buildings Northland. While the HILLCON Group name may be new, the company is anything but, with a legacy dating back over 30 years and boasting a number of iconic Northland buildings.

We’re proud to be Northland owned and operated and do our utmost to support the community wherever possible.

Our employment of more than 30 team members, plus apprentices, together with our local contractors, ensures you’re dealing with locals throughout your project.

In addition, Coresteel Buildings’ Whangarei manufacturing facility produces all structural steel for every one of our Coresteel Buildings projects, improving efficiency and reducing transport costs, while keeping the Northland economy churning.
