Deputy HERA Chair | Technical Director – Built Environment, Aurecon
As Technical Director and structural engineer with Aurecon, my career spans more than 30 years. During this time I’ve played key roles in the design and design management of a range of building and civil infrastructure engineering projects in New Zealand and across Asia. Currently, I’m responsible for management and technical leadership, client development and project delivery in the Built Environment business of Aurecon.
I’ve been involved in the successful delivery of a wide range of technically complex and challenging projects across New Zealand, Hong Kong, China and Vietnam. Bringing a creative and innovative design approach to engineering, with specific capability in high rise buildings, airport terminal facilities, retail and health facilities. I have particular expertise in seismic engineering and have been responsible for numerous seismic assessments of building structures, strengthening and major extensions to existing buildings.
I’m a strong advocate of the use of structural steel in the building sector – and believe being part of HERA’s Executive Board is a pathway for supporting, promoting and having conversations that work towards this.
