Senior Geotechnical Engineer and Team Leader at Tonkin & Taylor (T&T).
My main role at T&T is to develop clients and keep them happy in terms of T&T’s engineering recommendations for their projects. My other role at T&T is a team leader, which involves the development of younger staff.
Geotechnical Engineering degree from the UK and worked in the UK for 8 years before being offered a job at T&T in Auckland. The last 14 years I have been based in Auckland. This time has gone very quickly due to the range of great projects that I have worked on since moving to NZ.
Travelling and working in different regions (and countries).
Timesheets but unfortunately it’s how we get paid!!
I have just completed a range of projects in Nauru, Fiji and Tonga. We are also currently involved in a bridges project in Vanuatu.
