Ivan brings more than 35 years’ experience and a pragmatic perspective of the construction industry to his role as a building surveyor, providing services such as destructive testing, condition reports, tendering, contract administration and remediation design reviews to Prendos clients.
At the beginning of his building career Ivan completed a 5-year cadetship and gained a NZ Certificate in Building but after 20-years of working on residential and commercial construction projects he lay down the tools and became a multi-skilled building control inspector operating in a regulatory role for a local Territorial Authority.
Five years later he set up his own consultancy specialising in building-related services and for eight years provided a wide range of clients with regulatory, administrative and technical assistance.
Since joining Prendos in 2011 Ivan has been responsible for re-cladding and structurally upgrading a number of significant projects including commercial building, multi-residential and schools. He finds it highly satisfying to be part of a team that is able to complete a project within the available budget and timeframe and deliver to the client a building that is a legacy to good design.
