Brett Forgesson, Director
BE (Civil)(Hons), MBA, CMEngNZ, CPEng

Brett Forgesson is a Chartered Professional Engineer with close to 30 years’ experience in Structural Engineering since graduating from Auckland University with a Bachelors of Engineering (Honours) in 1989. He also holds a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) from Heriot-Watt University in Scotland.


Brett has also worked in the United Kingdom and Bermuda where he ran his own Consulting Engineering business for over 8 years.  Since returning to NZ in 2008, Brett has spent the last 10 years in Marlborough where he has worked on a wide variety of structural engineering projects from internal renovations of residential dwellings to seismic upgrades of multi-storey commercial buildings.


Brett also has substantial experience in seismic assessment and upgrade work. He was seconded to Christchurch for a month after the 2011 Earthquakes where he carried out assessments of damaged residential and commercial buildings. Following the 2016 North Canterbury earthquakes, Brett carried out building inspections on over 100 buildings in Marlborough & Kaikoura to assess whether the buildings were safe to occupy. Brett has also carried out the design for seismic upgrades to over 30 commercial buildings in Marlborough – the designs have all been carried out to achieve a practical and cost effective solution.


Brett appreciates the outdoor lifestyle that the South Island offers and enjoys marathon running, tramping, fishing and walking his (children’s) dogs.
