It’s our independence and willingness to focus on the hard decisions early that clears the path for successful project delivery on time and within budget.


Matt is a Director of RCP. He brings more than 20 years’ experience in providing strategic advice on large and complex projects in Christchurch and nationally. 

A born and bred Cantabrian, Matt’s dedication and passion is exhibited by his role in the continual rebuild and recovery of Christchurch following the 2010 and 2011 earthquakes. Matt’s project leadership role in the Blueprint Plan for the Recovery of Central Christchurch, allowed him to influence and contribute to the effective management of a large multi-disciplinary team and multiple stakeholders in a unique and high pressure environment to successfully deliver the wellreceived Blueprint. Matt regards the chance to influence the future of the city as both a professional and personal privilege. 

His ability to understand the client’s objectives coupled with his extensive experience in delivering quality projects is further demonstrated in the setup and delivery of the Civil Defence and CERA Demolitions PMO, and the Christchurch Temporary Stadium project.
