The Water Horse: Legend of the Deep movie
The location director required a new steel road bridge over a major river to gain access for all filming equipment and wardrobe to a key location for filming in the Queenstown area. We carried out site investigations, design and contract supervision to immediately respond to this request.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie
The location director required an urgent structural review of an old concrete works building that was used as the set for a bar fight scene in this 2009 movie starring Hugh Jackman. A detailed report was compiled for Producers “Woz Productions”.

World Curling Seniors Competition, Dunedin
The World Curling Seniors is an event that attracts competitors from 10 curling nations with two teams each. In 2009 we managed the event in Dunedin that included 3 phases; all the pre-event media and competitor organising, arranging and planning of nightly events and the event website; secondly the event funding applications and finally managing the event itself. Feedback from the competitors was this was the best event that had ever been to in the long life of this global annual occasion.
World Curling Federation President Les Harrison has praised the organisers of the just completed World Seniors Curling Championships in Dunedin. In a recorded interview with Resby Coutts on thecurler.com, he said they had "taken it by storm and done a great job". Read more curling.org.nz
