SIMON ATTRIBUTES HIS STRING OF SUCCESSFUL PROJECTS TO THE FACT THAT HE GENUINELY HAS HIS CLIENTS' BEST INTERESTS AT HEART.

At 4Sight, he combines his academic background and extensive experience with parks and infrastructure projects to deliver statutory permits for millions of dollars of new assets each year.

He is well versed in the high standards of consultation required for local government and private projects and encourages junior staff members at 4Sight to hold themselves to the highest possible standards.
Much of Simon's current focus is on park amenity and asset projects, from ecological restoration to coastal erosion protection and walking track developments. He also has significant experience in programme-level infrastructure delivery, through the Auckland Council stormwater programme and telco industry.
