In recent months there has been plenty of change in the EDC Bay of Plenty office. We have moved offices; however, we remain in the same building above the ASB bank on The Strand. Staff numbers have increased from 3 to 6 which includes one of the company directors relocating from Auckland to Whakatane. Gareth Williams has over 30 years’ experience specialising in both geotechnical and geoenvironmental engineering. He has worked on projects in the UK and Russia and has been based in New Zealand for the last 23 years. His specific experience includes investigations for subdivisions, residential and commercial developments.
This office expansion enables EDC to accelerate growth in our existing geotechnical services and will provide structural and civil expertise along with support from our Auckland and Christchurch offices. The new offices and staff will increase our ability to serve current and future clients. We are also looking to extend our range of services by further expanding our team with the addition of a Senior Structural Engineer to the Bay of Plenty office in the near future. Recruitment is currently underway.
EDC is responding to the growing demand for geotechnical work in the Eastern Bay of Plenty, wider Bay of Plenty and further afield to the Hawkes Bay and East Coast. This is a logical step going forward, as we consider the area to be a very dynamic region holding enormous potential with the growing population and emerging industry covering residential, commercial and industrial developments.
The office is located in Suite 2, Level 1, 202 The Strand, Whakatane.
