Our history began in Christchurch in 1932, when James Leonard Davis registered and founded the business J. L. Davis Registered Surveyor and Claims Assessor. In 1960 Gavin Ogilvie established the structural and civil engineering arms of the company. The company became J L Davis Son Ogilvie and Associates.
We became Davis Ogilvie & Partners Ltd. in 1987, and since then we have expanded by amalgamating with established local businesses including Cowan and Holmes from Timaru and Greymouth, and Gourdie and Ward from Nelson.
Today Davis Ogilvie (DO) provides a complete range of multi-disciplinary engineering, surveying and development planning services within one company. By covering structural, civil and geotechnical engineering, land surveying, resource management and environmental science we are able to simplify construction, design and development using collaborative processes to create better solutions for our clients.
Our Christchurch team works closely with all other offices to provide a full range of services around the South Island. Our teams are experienced in sustainable development. Not only will our expertise add value to your project, you will also benefit from our enduring relationships with other professional consultancies
