Chris has extensive experience on a wide range of geotechnical engineering projects, often involving complex technical challenges that require innovative and sophisticated design solutions. These have usually included non-traditional engagements such as design build, alternative design for tenders and alliancing.
Chris is continually involved in cutting edge solutions and has 17 years experience in the industry in roles ranging from construction to design management. His experience ranges from sophisticated numerical modelling to on site construction supervision.
A Bachelor of Engineering (First Class Honours) (Civil) and Master of Engineering (Geotechnical), as well as being a chartered professional engineer in New Zealand and on the international professional engineer register, Chris arrived at this position by way of the practical experience, completing a New Zealand Certificate of Engineering before his degree.
Chris has lead design teams on major projects such as tender designs for Transits Central Motorway Junction and geotechnical design for the Auckland Hospital Expansion and Greenlane Hospital Expansions. Chris specialises in cutting edge numerical design of soil structure interaction along with slope stability, deep foundations and soft ground engineering.
Chris is currently the manager of our Tauranga Office when not immersed in engineering challenges.
