Our services include

Engaging an environmental consultant early on means potential issues can be identified and solutions incorporated into construction programmes – reducing the potential for unexpected costs arising during construction and earthwork activities.

Protecting human health and the environment are at the forefront of our environmental team’s work. They’re experts at identifying potential contaminants, and their source, which may impact your land and its potential development.

Our fire engineering design services are available for buildings of all sizes and levels of complexity, from residential units to multi-storey offices, to commercial and industrial developments.

Fire engineering is an increasingly important discipline within New Zealand’s construction industry. Internationally, high-profile fires have highlighted the need for comprehensive fire engineering design to provide maximum life safety, while still allowing for architectural freedom and building usability.

Our civil engineering team specialises in delivering cost-effective civil solutions to the built and natural environment.

Our team has a wide range of experience from residential land development, to commercial and industrial.

Our expertise in all materials, structural systems, and construction methodologies has generated a national reputation for finding better ways to deliver clients’ projects to a high standard.

Our team of geotechnical engineers have a wealth of experience. experience in designing solutions that are tailormade for our New Zealand environment. We’ve worked on everything from slope stability assessments in Northland’s Doubtless Bay to liquefaction analyses in Invercargill.

It is our job – and passion – to engineer projects that are clever, yet simple and of the highest quality. We find better ways and solutions to engineering challenges that come our way.

The team at Kirk Roberts used thinking that was outside the box, they liked the idea.  Then after putting the basic design into their simulated seismic program, refining, and testing, we landed on the perfect mix of design and engineering. The biggest test came with the 2011 earthquakes in Christchurch. We had already installed tanks in the Rangiora district and later the real test with the 5 – 1.3m litre effluent tanks in Kaikōura (which were full at the time of the Kaikoura earthquake), two of these being on the fault line. The tanks came through with very little damage. We had no idea if they would withhold this type of enormous force, I’d witnessed, concrete, timber, and steel tanks that had collapsed. We’re certainly grateful to have teamed with Kirk Roberts. The commitment  Damian and Jade have for their clients, and for finding the best engineering solutions is second to none.
