We’re on a journey to inspire, encourage and support each other

Our clients are right at the heart of everything we do. We don’t just talk about it, we do it. Even if that means changing how we work to ensure we stay on track. Naturally, the best way to make sure our clients are looked after is to make sure our people have what they need when they need it.


People matter

We’re in the professional services business and it would be fair to say we are only as good as our people. For us that means creating an environment where people can truly shine. We pride ourselves on openness, honesty and accessibility where people are encouraged to learn from each other and can always find support.


Growing opportunity

Work shoulder to shoulder with the most expert and experienced. Our organisational structure promotes quality decision making and encourages talent and ambition into industry leaders. We offer direct access to directors and the senior team, so you can learn on the job, be mentored and grow.


Celebrate difference

BBD is made up of people from different walks of life who share a common purpose and values. We take pride in our work. We provide a safe, flexible, welcoming and supportive environment for our people to succeed.

Barnes Beagley Doherr is built on a legacy reaching decades back into the world of quantity surveying in New Zealand. In 2013 Simon Barnes, Scott Beagley and David Doherr chose to challenge the traditional corporate model and started a new company built around clients, good people and an environment that supports both.

Today that legacy endures, and we continue to exceed expectations where we are considered the best in the business. We’ve grown to 40+ people reaching into every corner of the construction sector.

Covering the length of our country from north to south we still take pride in keeping it personal and keeping our clients at the centre of carrying out our service.

We can’t ever know what the future holds, but we do know we have the people and resources to play our part in shaping that future.
