Office Address:
75 Foremans Rd
Christchurch 8042

Peter is Civil Construction Ltd (CCL)’s Christchurch Operations Manager and has also been in the drain laying and wastewater service industries for over 45 years. He is a Certifying Drainlayer and a member of the Plumbers, Gasfitters and Drainlayers Board.

Peter has recently been leading his team on a number of aspects of the Sumner Road Re-opening project, including the construction of a 55m long rock fall embankment and the repair of a range of type and size retaining walls. This experience has given him a detailed appreciation for the complexities of working in a challenging site subject to rock fall, the high level of health and safety required given the constraints of the site location and the sensitive environment in which his team has been undertaking the works.

Peter’s strength in project management on complex projects has resulted in excellent results. Other projects delivered under his leadership include the Fonterra plant expansion at Edendale, the underground services installation for Milton Prison, Jacks Point Subdivision in Queenstown and the Stewart Island Sewerage System, where he was required to build a disposal field within a National Park environment.

In addition to retaining walls and rock placement, Peter has extensive experience with site preparation, foundations, stormwater, domestic sewerage extensions, water, effluent, in-ground irrigation systems and mechanical service pipelines. His experience and strong leadership will ensure work to deliver the contract works are executed on time and to the highest quality and safety standards.
