Job of a lifetiime

Graduate Surveyor

Working on the Waikato expressway has been the job of a lifetime for surveying graduate Bayley Smith. The project was decades in the making, and came to the close in July 2022 with delivery of the Hamilton section where Bayley’s been based.
Bayley started her career as a graduate surveyor with Fletcher Construction, working within the CityEdge Alliance that delivered the final stage of the expressway. One of her favourite parts of the role was bringing drones into the project. When Bayley started, the team was regularly hiring drone pilots to do survey work. She spotted an opportunity to expand her skillset and the team purchased Bayley a drone of her own. "It's paid for itself, many times over, and I'm getting more confident using it."
Now the expressway’s wrapped up, Bayley's taking her career to the next level in a newly created role sharing her surveying skills with the Waikato Higgins and Brian Perry Civil teams.
