Tom Halpin joins Holmes as Civils Team Leader

We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Tom Halpin as a Civils Team Leader at Holmes Consulting.

Tom, who has more than 30 years’ experience in Civil Engineering, will be working closely with our Civils Principal, Andrea Jarvis, to guide and direct their growing team across New Zealand.

“We’re excited to have another highly-experienced Civils leader onboard—it means we’ll both have more time to really engage with our customers and understand what’s important to them,” says Andrea. “Tom has an extensive background in site development and infrastructure, combined with a real passion for upskilling the next generation of engineers.”

During Tom’s career he has been involved in the planning and delivery of many prominent projects, including numerous Ryman Healthcare facilities, Sylvia Park shopping centre, Stonefields housing development, Auckland and Wiri Prisons and the Victoria Park Tunnel.

Tom is highly regarded for his pragmatism and knowledge, and his ability to set up projects for success from the beginning.

“Tom understands the complexities of the interactions between civil engineering and other disciplines, and how to use the best combination of clever engineering and smart technology to smooth those interactions,” says Andrea. “We’re very pleased to have him on the team.”
