Mike’s roots are in mechanical engineering and he has spent much of his working life offshore in countries including the UK, Singapore and Australia. He loves the cut and thrust of big projects, and the complexity and challenges they bring.
After close to 40 years in the construction industry – working for a mix of engineering consultants, subcontractors, and project and construction managers – Mike has faced just about every problem that’s likely to arise, and solved them. With his breadth of experience, he infuses projects with a global perspective and out-of-the-box thinking.
A recent starter with RCP, Mike brings a wealth of knowledge, particularly in the healthcare sector where he has developed solid design and project management capabilities over the past 15 years. His desire to make a difference and be involved in these projects at an early stage drew him to the company, where he has bolstered the health team, and is helping to secure and deliver some major healthcare projects.
Based in the Auckland office, he is already immersed in two such jobs: leading the engineering services management team for Auckland District Health Board’s FIRP (Facility Infrastructure Remediation Programme) project; and as part of the design management team for New Zealand’s largest hospital rebuild project, the New Dunedin Hospital.
Mike is a committed team player and he operates on the basis that you can only achieve good results out of good relationships. Good communication is key, which includes speaking a language that all stakeholders will understand.
In his spare time, Mike enjoys wood working, playing golf and socialising with friends over a glass of vino.
