James leads our northern regional business and oversees the delivery of all our project works between Warkworth and Te Rerenga Wairua (Cape Reinga).
James has over thirty years experience in the civil construction industry. Starting out on the tools in the late ’80’s he went on to obtain his NZ Certificate in Civil Engineering before spending several years working both in New Zealand and abroad for one of New Zealand’s largest engineering consultancies. He then returned to his first calling – construction – and since 1997 has worked for international contractors as a project engineer and project manager on a variety of transport, waters, structures and mining infrastructure projects in both New Zealand and Australia.
His most recent role before joining the United Civil team in early 2020 was as Country Manager (Fiji) for a Tier 1 contractor; a role he had held for 3 years.
James is passionate about working with project owners to deliver outstanding outcomes and sets very high standards for his team.
