WHAT WE DO
CIVIL ENGINEERING AND LAND DEVELOPMENT
Our experienced team of engineers have a wide range of private and public sector experience in residential, commercial, industrial and institutional land development and infrastructure projects. This includes proven experience in both greenfield and brownfield sites.
At AR & Associates, we understand the technical engineering and regulatory requirements involved in the planning and design of cost-efficient, robust and fit for purpose stormwater management systems. We offer particular expertise in delivering innovative hydrological and stormwater solutions in a wide range of settings: from a catchment-wide basis down to individual site level and strongly promote the use of Water Sensitive Design (WSD)/Low Impact Design (LID) in our approach.
Our environmental team delivers the best solutions through recognition of the inherent, natural qualities of the land, and the use of ‘soft’ engineering approaches for land development and the management of streams, lakes and coastal areas. Our environmental team has a strong background working within the public sector, so we understand council processes and requirements from the inside.
RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PLANNING
We have a strong team of planners who together offer proven resource management planning expertise at every level: from providing planning policy guidance and evidence to the preparation and processing of resource consent applications. We are also involved in the day-to-day resource consent application work in the public and private sector. When you deal with AR & Associates you can have confidence in our no surprises approach.
Our implementation and management of projects is thorough and reliable because we focus on getting it right first time, every time.
AR & Associates has a team of experienced civil and environmental engineers, surveyors and planners with a wide range of skill sets in a variety of fields. We like to think of ourselves as a kind of working family and we encourage open collaboration, free communication, lightheartedness, humour, respect and professionalism – fundamental elements that make up our working environment.
AR & Associates Ltd was established in 2003 and has since grown to over 20 staff-strong team. Our commitment to high quality work and reliability has given us a strong reputation throughout the public and private sectors. We are always interested in adding like-minded members to our team, so if you have a good work ethic, like to be surrounded by motivated professionals and are looking for an exciting career path with a fun and dedicated team, we would love to hear from you!
