Senior Project Engineer
In a 12 year career with Fletcher, Jonty has played key roles on some of New Zealand’s largest infrastructure and building projects: the Christchurch rebuild, Manukau Harbour Crossing, Mackays to Peka Peka Expressway and Central Motorway Junction to name just a few.
It was the opportunity to work on such landmark projects that drew Jonty to work for Fletcher as a first year Engineering student at Auckland University. After hearing a presentation on the construction of the Skytower and SkyCity Convention Centre in one of his early university papers, Jonty knew this was the company he wanted to work for.
A summer spent labouring on the Mangere Wastewater Treatment Plant laid the foundations, and after finishing his degree, Jonty joined the company permanently as Graduate Engineer on the same project.
Stints on the Stratford Power Station, CMJ Stage 2 and Manukau Harbour Crossing followed, before the Christchurch Earthquakes saw Jonty turn his hand to management. In response to the significant demand for piling and foundations expertise following the quakes, Piletech established a Canterbury regional office – which Jonty led for two years.
