Experience | Honesty | Grit | Adaptability
While our key services are civil works, such as earthworks, drainage, roading, subdivisions, building foundations, piling and retaining, in fact any concrete in the ground; the key to our success is our people.
The team at Urban Civil is professional, diverse and experienced with a passion for solving problems. Drawing on the expertise and skills of our people, we create long-standing, innovative residential, commercial and infrastructure solutions on civil construction and drainage projects of all sizes. For almost a decade, we’ve carved out a reputation as one of the best civil construction companies in Auckland. Our solid name is based on an unwavering commitment to quality and safety. We never cut corners and we never leave things to chance.
MEET THE TEAM
With over 30 years’ experience in all aspects of commercial construction -high end residential and property development – Dave knows what he’s doing. From pricing right through to completion, including on-site project management and multi contract management, he’s the man for the job.
A quantity surveyor by trade, Dave is a third generation building contractor; making stuff is in the blood. He truly loves the buzz of the construction world: the whole process of seeing a job right through from start to finish with a great business partner, a tight team of skilled operators and lots of big, awesome plant and equipment. What’s not to love? When he’s not on a noisy civil construction site, Dave enjoys being with his family and takes full advantage of any chance to get outdoors, particularly getting out on the water, power boating, sailing, diving and fishing.
Born into a contracting family and with an early passion for construction, Dan has a trade qualification in carpentry and joinery and the benefit of over 30 years of experience across the New Zealand construction industry, making him an extraordinarily well-qualified civil works director.
Dan’s main role is to lead the team of civil and drainlaying supervisors in their collaborative work with various clients, consultants, subcontractors and local authorities, driving projects to completion.
When he’s away from the business, you’ll most likely find Dan on, in or around the water, fishing or boating with his family.
