The new home for Mātai is currently under construction in Gisborne.

Mateenbar™ concrete reinforcement is being used throughout the slab. Mateenbar™ is ideal for flatwork because it's a quarter the weight of steel which makes it faster to install. It is also easy to cut on-site with standard cutting equipment.

Pultron Composites are founding sponsors of Mātai.
