Global Construction Review reported that tasked with building the country’s biggest ever infrastructure project, a New Zealand company is scouring the UK for construction professionals. Downer New Zealand wants project managers, commercial managers, quantity surveyors, superintendents, supervisors and engineers to help it build New Zealand’s first underground urban rail tunnel and other major infrastructure over the next decade.

Downer, with Vinci, Aecom and others, is part of the Link Alliance building the NZD 4.4 billion City Rail Link in Auckland, including two 3.4 kilometer long tunnels through New Zealand’s biggest city.

Mr John Burden, Downer’s executive general manager for infrastructure, said City Rail Link is New Zealand’s biggest infrastructure project and will require specialist expertise. UK professionals who have experience working on the Crossrail, for instance, will be “of significant value”.

Downer is hosting ‘Secure your future in New Zealand’ recruitment events during October in London and Manchester. New Zealand has had a massive building boom during the past 15 years, with no sign of abatement.

Mr Burden said that “What has changed is the allocation away from roads and highways and more towards making cities more amenable, better places to live,” citing the CRL, water and sewage infrastructure and myriad projects to better connect communities.
