Welcome to Wellington

Wellington may have the second largest population in New Zealand, but we’re first in a lot of ways. As the capital, we’re the home of Parliament, and the cultural heart of the country. We’re said to be the country’s coffee and craft beer capital. In 2017, we ranked first in a Deutsche Bank Quality of Life Report. And our local attractions can’t be beat—especially the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa. (You can just call it Te Papa if you want to sound like a local.)

From our office in the heart of Wellington’s Central Business District, our team members enjoy all the city has to offer. And we give back through our work too, offering a range of water, transportation, energy, urban planning, and environmental services trusted by our clients.

We’ve completed a number of seismic resilience planning projects to help ensure a secure water supply following a natural disaster, and we’ve helped improve the state highways and cycleways in and around Wellington.

In 2017, our clients named us the Best Consulting Engineering Firm of our size in Australia and New Zealand (Client Choice Awards joint winner – Australian Financial Review/Beaton Consulting).
