Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade (MFAT) & Government of Niue
Niue Island, Pacific
To develop tourism as a sustainable industry for the tiny island of Niue Arrow was tasked with developing the Matavai resort to increase room capacity, build a new visitors centre and upgrade walking tracks and viewing points.
Arrow employed and up-skilled local contractors wherever possible. There is only one flight to Niue per week and only one boat every six weeks. This meant that the logistics of each project had to be managed stringently to ensure all overseas contractors and construction supplies reach the island when they were supposed to. Working conditions included cyclones and an average temperature of 33˚C with high humidity. With limited communication, unreliable internet and telephones, Arrow created alternative systems and processes to document each project and to communicate with consultants back in New Zealand.
