Technical Director Buildings

Jason Bretherton

Jason has been blessed with opportunities to work on a diverse range of projects across a broad range of sectors ranging from pumping systems in power stations, to electrical infrastructure and control systems in road and rail tunnels. As his practice has grown, so has the scale and complexity of the projects and this has seen him involved in building and infrastructure projects associated with schools, hospitals, prisons and commercial buildings.

One of the highlights was the establishment of a Strategic Asset Management Framework for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

Of all, the most career defining experience was was living through the devastating earthquakes that have occurred in Christchurch and Canterbury since 2010. 

“We are living in an ever-changing world which is heavily influenced by climate change, immigration and urbanisation, social and democratic change, rapid technology advancements and limited resources.  I’m passionate about setting up the platform for future success by joining-up the experts across our teams and indeed the entire industry, to create what matters for future generations in the most efficient and effective manner, with a move towards resource regeneration wherever possible.”

Jason is passionate about energy efficiency and sustainability, and strives to deliver a high degree of integration by applying a whole-of-life approach. This challenges traditional thinking and propels it into horizons well beyond the (often) short duration of the design and construction phase of many projects.

In 2017 Jason was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for his outstanding contribution on Christchurch’s Justice & Emergency Services Precinct construction project. His areas of expertise include Project Director & Principal Designer for Multidiscplinary Projects, Electrical Building Services Design, Power Reticulation & Distribution, Energy Management, Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) including Greenstar & NABERS Ratings and Engineering Services Infrastructure Development & Strategic Planning for Portfolios.
