Ivan brings 40 years’ experience and a pragmatic view of the construction industry to his role, where he manages remediation, re-cladding and structural upgrade projects. These have included a number of significant residential and school buildings, as well as five large, multi-unit apartment blocks across Auckland, comprising a total of 150 apartments.
Ivan thrives on finding relevant, economic, compliant and achievable solutions to the challenges of remediation project work – which typically include defects associated with passive fire, in-situ services and engineering elements. He provides services including destructive testing, condition reports, tendering, contract administration and remediation design reviews.
After a lifetime in construction, Ivan has gained knowledge and experience across all facets of the industry. His desire to learn and evolve saw him progress from carpenter to multi-skilled building control inspector, operating in a regulatory role for a local Territorial Authority. He then went on to set up his own building services consultancy, providing regulatory, administrative and technical assistance, before joining Prendos in 2011 and becoming a Registered Building Surveyor in 2015.
Ivan finds it highly satisfying to manage and be part of a team that works within budget and timeframe to deliver a building that is a legacy to good design.
