Reporting on a plain fare, new two level Tauranga building, its construction project managers, an outfit called ‘The Building Intelligent Group’, wrote in their newsletter, “New Zealand Businesses are imprinting a strong social element into their DNA”. If that tosh is not bad enough, the name of the building is definitely a flogging offence. Brace yourself – it’s called “The Kollective”.
Why? There’s no such word although plainly it’s meant, so they tell us, not as a pointless butchering of English but “as a play on the word collective, inspired by local iwi Ngai Tamarawaho”. What world class cock! It will come as no surprise that behind all of this running amok with other people’s money, is a public body, in this case the Tauranga Energy Consumer Trust.
