The Groundworks team

We're highly experienced and qualified

Led by owner Hamish Rees, the Groundworks management team brings a wealth of qualifications, knowledge and experience to projects.

With a NZ Diploma in Civil Engineering, Hamish has worked for 15 years in site engineering, contract management and project management, covering all facets of civil construction.

At the field level, Groundworks’ two key foremen are Paul Sievers and Fabian Spencer. Paul has been involved in civil contracting since he was 16, starting as an operator before moving into running sites and crews. He is a highly experienced and capable foreman. Fabian is our drainage foreman. He comes from a family of drainlayers, and has been laying drains for 30 years on water mains, sewage and stormwater projects.

The extensive experience and knowledge among the Groundworks team is a major point of difference for us. As your civil contractor, you can rely on us to deliver your project successfully.
