Peter’s role at Prendos involves surveying commercial and residential buildings. Carrying out condition surveys, technical due diligence and long term maintenance plans are his speciality in the commercial arena. For residential and public buildings he carries out weathertightness investigations including preparing suitable remediation strategies and design advice. Peter has been involved in the remediation of a range of residential apartment buildings and public buildings up to a project value of $2 million.
Peter also has a strong IT background and developed Prendos’ in-house maintenance planning software. He has provided maintenance plans for a range of sites including the iconic Government House in Auckland. The combination of his building surveying and IT skills were utilised in a previous role with Scottish Power in the UK where he was involved with the development and delivery of their warmzones project aimed at reducing fuel poverty across the country with a combination of approaches to energy efficiency.
One of his most challenging but rewarding projects in NZ was the remediation of a large North Shore school. Unforeseen structural challenges discovered during the project forced reprioritising the budget and timelines to ensure work would be completed on time and to budget whilst balancing the needs of the school. “The rewarding part was seeing the finished building knowing that not only does it look great but it is also built for the long term.”
