Bianca Hurrell

Senior Associate


With roots in town planning, Bianca joined RCP in 2011 and is based in Auckland. Over time, her role at RCP has evolved to comprise two distinct yet complementary parts – winning projects and contributing to projects.

First, she is responsible for coordinating and managing all of RCP’s bid responses nationwide. Bianca loves to win, and she’s known for her strong work ethic and all-for-one and one-for-all approach. She is hugely talented at presenting RCP’s brand in a competitive tender and at distilling highly technical information into a form that people can understand. She has supported the team on recent wins including Te Matapihi Wellington Central Library, Te Kaha (Canterbury Multi-Use Arena) and the new Dunedin Hospital.

Second, Bianca inhabits a strategic advisory role at the front end of projects, which includes complex consenting processes and stakeholder engagement with parties including central and local government, and iwi. Relationship building is a critical element of these projects and an area in which Bianca excels. She has the ability to listen to people’s opinions then drive everyone in the same direction without imposing a set way of thinking. Standout projects include Queens Wharf Redevelopment for the Rugby World Cup and Commercial Bay. Bianca is currently working to bring Ikea to New Zealand.

Bianca is Christchurch born and bred and her family is still based there so she tries to visit as much as possible. She also loves to travel.
