About Us

Blue Barn Consulting was established in 2008, and is proudly 100% New Zealand owned and operated.

Since its inception, Blue Barn has built a talented team of professional engineering and project management specialists with offices in Auckland and Christchurch. We provide professional services for a wide variety of private and public sector clients across a broad range of infrastructure, land development, structural design, parks and transportation sectors.

The Blue Barn team offers a combination of world-class technical expertise, proven successful project delivery experience and significant knowledge of local laws and regulations. We strive to provide innovative, yet cost effective solutions as we recognise the importance of high quality outputs being delivered on time and on budget.

Our core value and the ethos we operate under as a company is “people matter”. We apply this core value across the board, to our clients, our suppliers, our partners, even the people we pass in the street, but most importantly to our staff, our people are the key in what we do and how we do it.
