2018 WINNERS

JORDAN GREGORY

RESENE PROJECTS UNDER $5 MILLION, HIGHLY COMMENDED AWARD 2018

Company:NZ Force Construction

Project:Silverdale Primary School Stage 4, Auckland




There were delays in getting the Silverdale Primary School project started, which had the effect of reducing the project timeframe from ten months to eight months. Jordan reviewed and re-sequenced his programme by splitting the building into two portions. This allowed the concrete contractor to start early and brought the project back to programme once the piling was completed.

This was a simple project, though it certainly had its challenges. Along with the compressed programme that resulted from the delayed start, there were underground and piling issues to contend with. Mid-way through construction there was a replacement project architect that needed to be brought up to speed. Despite all of this, Jordan delivered the project eight-weeks early, an aspect that one referee described as astonishing.

Jordan managed all aspects of the project, from Health & Safety through to value management and even as part-time quantity surveyor. His ability to be pro-active in the face of several significant issues was impressive, as was his close management of both subcontractors, and the clients’ project team. Jordan developed a special bond with the school children, which contributed to the success of the project. This is assisted to NZ Force being engaged to undertake additional projects at the school.
