About BBR Contech

Experience and innovation are a winning combination.

 

Founded in 1963, BBR Contech has established itself as New Zealand’s leading specialist civil engineering firm. The key to this success in a highly competitive field can be summed up in one word: innovation.

 

Our team has developed unrivalled know-how in the demanding areas of post-tensioning, seismic strengthening and high-tech concrete repairs. We have developed new methodologies and products, and partnered with leading engineering companies from around the world. Above all, we have invested in our design capability, with the goal of supporting our clients in their quest to deliver excellence.

 

We also support new knowledge, such as research projects with the Universities of Auckland and Canterbury that explore post-tensioning and FRP (fibre-reinforced polymer) applications as retrofit solutions for earthquake resistance.

 

Quality assurance and standards
BBR Contech is committed to meeting the highest standards of quality assurance, environmental management and health and safety performance in our work. This is reflected in our accreditation to the New Zealand Contractors’ Federation’s QEST integrated management system and our commitment to achieving ISO9001 and ISO45000 certification.

 

Global connections add strength
BBR Contech is an active member of the BBR Network, a global group of engineering contractors that specialise in post-tensioning, ground anchoring, construction engineering and structural maintenance, repair and retrofitting. This enables us to stay at the forefront of technology in these highly complex fields, and to adapt that technology to meet client needs.

 

With members in 47 countries, the BBR Network enables us to access the knowledge and resources of some of the world’s most experienced and talented engineers and technicians. We can also source the latest in European-approved and CE-marked construction systems and technology, many of which are exclusively provided by BBR Contech in New Zealand.
