Land development

We simplify the land development process by providing a full range of technical expertise and services. We understand each project is different with varying degrees of complexities and constraints, so we tailor our approach to meet your requirements.

Site development

We’ve been developing sites for over 30 years. Whether it’s a spec build or tailored design, we specialise in partnering with developers, design build contractors, investors and business owners to create commercially viable and functional building developments.

As a core part of our skillset for many decades, our experienced team of structural engineers, architectural designers, draftspeople and technicians can provide design and assessment services for anything from large scale commercial buildings to home renovations.

Geotechnical engineering

We specialise in practical advice and engineering solutions for residential, industrial and land development projects. We help you understand how geotechnical conditions influence your development and find most practical, innovative, and effective solutions to reduce risk.

Land surveying

Backed by an 80-year long history, we’re known as experts. Our surveying team has one of the broadest ranges of capability in New Zealand and are widely recognised by councils, peers and other professionals for delivering the highest quality surveys.
