With Tauranga recently overtaking Dunedin as New Zealand’s fifth largest city, one of the world’s leading professional services companies, GHD, has opened an office in the city, to help deliver a variety of water, transport, environment and property and building projects.

GHD employs more than 400 people in New Zealand and the new office is part of the company’s extensive national presence, with major hubs in Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, and regional offices located close to clients.

Al Monro, GHD’s Manager for New Zealand, says the new office will enable its multidisciplinary team to better connect with local clients, and provide a responsive and flexible service.

“We are delighted to be supporting our clients with the tremendous growth that is being seen across the region. Having experienced people on the ground who are able to respond quickly to client needs is a key part of our business model. We draw on our local, national and global experience to deliver the right mix of skills and capabilities for our clients,” Al says.

The new office is led by Ryan Orr and Nick Gurr, who have extensive experience leading multidisciplinary teams. The Tauranga office already has eight people, with skills in transport, spatial science, building services and water engineering.

Ryan says, “Continued population and economic growth will drive demand for new and upgraded infrastructure in the Bay of Plenty. We are excited by the opportunities to help create liveable communities and a brighter future for everyone in this region.”
