Growing with the South Island

We are a leading consultancy and over our 80+ year history we’ve earned a reputation as a trusted partner.

With local experts on the ground, we can continue to provide a high level of expertise to a client base that covers the entire South Island. We have partnered with Land Dimensions, experts in the Nelson Tasman market, who specialise in land development, surveying and project management. This strategic alliance between our two companies will provide opportunity for us to offer the full range of our services throughout the upper South Island.

From the development of land through to the built form, we draw on years of professional experience and technical skills across our multidisciplinary team to deliver smarter project outcomes for clients, no matter where you are. Whether you need our services in isolation or as an efficient integrated partnership, we’re able to scale our resources and tailor our services to get your job done.

We look forward to providing expertise and contributing to the future of the Tasman and Marlborough districts. Find out more about our business alliance in our latest company update.
