Kaihoahoa Whenua | Landscape Architect
Kaihere | Associate Partner
I’m an experienced project strategist, master planner, designer, detailer, preparer of contracts and supervisor of the implementation of a wide range of landscape projects. I have a strong interest in taking projects from the initial concept through to successful implementation and I take great satisfaction seeing people and communities enjoy the projects I’ve helped bring to fruition.
The implementation of the award-winning Te papa Ōtākaro Avon River Park in Christchurch was a highlight, as was leading the master planning, streetscape and public realm areas at Christchurch International Airport that culminated in the delivery of a fantastic new plaza and covered walkway at the International Terminal Building. I’m particularly proud of recent master planning work in Southland and Otago, including Tunnel Beach in Ōtepoti Dunedin, Sandy Point near Waihōpai Invercargill and at Golden Bay on Rakiura Stewart Island
My experience includes educational, recreational, commercial, tourism and public facility developments. I enjoy working on multi-disciplinary projects. I’m also experienced in the administration of construction contracts, including liaison with clients and contractors, managing financials, contract management, programming and inspections.
