Police investigating the death of a security guard at a West Auckland construction site say a post-mortem has been carried out but the cause of death is still unclear.

The body of Charanpreet Dhaliwal was found at the site by colleagues on Friday morning.

Detective Inspector Greg Cramer says a post-mortem has been conducted.

He says police are reviewing CCTV footage and talking to a number of people who were near the construction site early on Friday morning.

A brief ceremony has been held to bless the site.

It was attended by kaumatua, members of the Auckland Sikh community and management and staff from the construction company and the security company Mr Dhaliwal worked for.
