Chris Shortt

Chris has worked as a civil and environmental engineer for over 20 years in the public and private sector, in New Zealand, Australia and the South Pacific.

With strengths in integrated design and project management, Chris has led many multi-disciplinary land development projects and also has a specialist niche in open spaces and streetscape civil design.  His project highlights include overseeing the revitalisation of the Mt Albert town centre, design of the East Coast Road fire station and Albany’s mixed-use apartment developments at Rose Garden and Library Lane.  As all of our civil engineering projects now involve design using 3D modelling, Chris’ team has contributed to our growing specialism in digital engineering.

How can we help to move your next project forward?
