Effectively delivering the construction packages under my control by working closely with my team and subcontractors.
Working on major road projects since 2007. Predominantly on road construction. Jobs include; Northern Gateway Toll Road, Newmarket Viaduct, Hobsonville Motorway, Papakura Interchange & Ngaruawahia Bypass.
Seeing the public using what we have built, and how this improves their lives and how it also benefits New Zealand.
When things go wrong, there is a mountain of paperwork that needs to be completed. A big reason why we spend so much time planning works.
Managing a small team delivering all civil (non-bridge) works. This includes; roads, barriers, traffic signals, streetlights, retaining walls & signs.
When working on the Hobsonville Deviation I came up with a solution to accelerate the programme and also save money. At the end of the project we had saved about 4 months time and millions of dollars. As a bonus we also built the ‘smoothest road in New Zealand’.
When completing a night shift we were finishing off the line-marking on the road, when we realised the line-marking crew had spelt the word “ONLY” as “OLNY”. This meant we had to clean off the wrong letters and re-paint the word, which led to us opening up the road late in the morning. I learnt that we need to leave adequate time for all works to be completed in a night shift.
