James Greene
James GreeneCivil Engineer B.E (Hons)
Knowledge and skill in 3D GPS surveying give James an ability to manage the fieldwork, design, and subsequent conversion of survey information into files for downloading to the field, for either set-out and control with the rover, or direct into the machine control systems. Within a relatively short time of starting at Grant Hood Contracting, he has progressed into a leadership role managing projects through to completion. Further growth of the company has James assuming an Engineers role in managing all our projects and providing support to our Operations and Contracts Managers. Methodical and diligent, James’s appreciation of team and fleet operation, budget management and Health and Safety requirements all combine to deliver projects which exceed expectations, as evidenced by the Woodend Wastewater Treatment project winning a CCNZ Canterbury Branch award.
