Ambiguity and uncertainty are a constant in today’s environment, new technology and the needs of clients are always evolving. The ability to adapt to an ever-changing environment has never been more important. Beyond being an iconic symbol for the country, Kiwi’s are one of the most adaptive creatures in the world which has allowed them to survive for hundreds of years. Adaptability allows one to go beyond perceived boundaries and find unexpected solutions to a challenge. Any leader will agree, without the ability to adapt, it will be impossible to reach their full potential. Behavioral adaptations are learned or inherited behaviors that ensure not only survival but the ability to thrive. The Kiwi bird, for example, continues to thrive in an ever-evolving world and environment.

Adaptation in construction can be defined as an intervention to adjust any work done on a building above the intention of maintenance that brings changes in the capacity, the function, and the performance of the building.


For Kiwi Newton Group, adapting means trailblazing into the new and constantly changing world of environmental sustainability with smart engineering, systems, and thinking, to reduce the carbon footprint of the buildings they create. Sustainable construction helps everyone win, it improves the health of the people who use the building, and the energy that can be created through the use of solar can offset other building costs, saving the owner money. By utilizing prefabricated parts, it lowers the risk of onsite injuries for workers, while also using fewer resources in the manufacturing stage which provides clients the opportunity to gain points in the LEED system for their buildings.
