Ara Institute Christchurch

Ara provides tertiary study across six sites. The city campus provides a wide range of services and facilities including theatre and exhibition spaces. A programme of work due to damage sustained following the 2010 & 2011 earthquakes was carried out over a five-year period involving repairs and reinstatement works to a total of 67 buildings. Key project challenges included finding sufficient space to continue operations and scheduling key resources to carry out key activities during the Christmas period shutdowns.



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.
