Ivan brings more than 35 years’ experience and a pragmatic perspective of the construction industry to his role as a building surveyor, providing services such as destructive testing, condition reports, tendering, contract administration and remediation design reviews to Prendos clients.

At the beginning of his building career Ivan completed a 5-year cadetship and gained a NZ Certificate in Building but after 20-years of working on residential and commercial construction projects he lay down the tools and became a multi-skilled building control inspector operating in a regulatory role for a local Territorial Authority.

Five years later he set up his own consultancy specialising in building-related services and for eight years provided a wide range of clients with regulatory, administrative and technical assistance.

Since joining Prendos in 2011 Ivan has been responsible for re-cladding and structurally upgrading a number of significant projects including commercial building, multi-residential and schools. He finds it highly satisfying to be part of a team that is able to complete a project within the available budget and timeframe and deliver to the client a building that is a legacy to good design.

Over the past 8 years, Ivan has been involved in the remediation of 5 multi unit buildings. These multi level apartment buildings located in the CBD, New Lynn, Ponsonby and East Tamaki, comprised a total of 150 apartments.

The challenges of remediation work always involves defective work associated with passive fire, in situ services and engineering elements.The solutions have to be relevant and economic as well as compliant and achievable.

Ivan’s lifetime involvement in construction has provided him the background to gain knowledge and experience in all facets of the industry.

His desire to learn and evolve in the industry has driven him to progress from carpenter (19 years) to Building Inspector, then Building Consultant, culminating as a Registered Building Surveyor.
