Contact Samantha now

Samantha has 30 years’ experience in ground engineering consultancy and is passionate about robust field investigations and helping clients understand the ground model before embarking on engineering design and problem solving. She provides clients with practical solutions and assists with good facilitation and communication between parties to convey engineering geology risks and how they relate to the technical requirements and project objectives. She can scale up and scale down depending on the budget and the importance of the project.

Investigations have ranged from Scala penetrometer tests, to test pitting, to rock face logging, to full soil and rock coring with instrumentation, on-going monitoring and downhole tools.

Samantha has a significant amount of stopbank upgrade, design and construction work from the Avon River, to the Rangitaiki, to the Waipaoa River and more recently the Grey River. Her career highlights include a track stability inspection on Managere Island, the Black Robin sanctuary, and temporary works inspections of the 52 m high rock reinforced Waimea Dam in Lees Valley, Brightwater.

Interests outside of work

In her spare time Samantha spends her time restoring a 100 yr old homestead and land – lots of tree felling and wood splitting.
