The charms of a quieter northern lifestyle away from busy central Auckland, combined with the area’s rapid growth, made Warkworth a natural choice for a new base for civil and structural engineers HFC group.
Senior structural engineer Tyron Erasmus manages the new Riverview Plaza office, having moved to Warkworth a year ago after moving out from the city for a less hectic lifestyle. With HFC already working on a range of projects in the region and further north, he says it made perfect sense to join the company and establish a team here.
“We collectively identified the perfect opportunity and timing to open up a base in the Warkworth area to capitalise on the growth, service our clients and carry out site inspections with an in-region team, as well as supporting the region from a local perspective,” he says.
Erasmus says being based in Warkworth means clients can benefit from local expertise on the area and its distinctive characteristics.
As an example, he says that the clay soils in the Warkworth area and much of Northland expand and shrink depending on the season and this sees a need for special care with design to accommodate this movement.
In addition, he says that as HFC is a multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy, the team is well equipped for dealing with future projects that may result from recent government changes to housing density rules affecting Warkworth.
Erasmus is joined in the new office by fellow engineers Rajat Barak and Tony Zhu, who also live in Warkworth.
