About Us

Together we're creating the new New Zealand, a place to welcome current and future generations.

One Company, United

We value people above all else - when our team, clients, partners and communities unite towards a common purpose we can achieve so much more being together than apart.

Client Understanding

We live and breathe our clients' businesses. We constantly look for ways to add value, foresee future challenges and opportunities, and help their visions become reality.


We never rest on our laurels, even after 138 years we are driving ourselves towards new innovations and new goals. 

There's no project too big or complex for Harrison Grierson. We'll move heaven and earth to get it done right.

Integrity and Accountability

Action is nothing without purpose and follow-through. We believe that purpose-driven progress can have a positive impact on all aspects of our world.

Never before has our role as kaitiaki been as important, now and in the future. Land, water, climate, and people.

Our steps to sustainability

How we work

Our robust processes guide everything we do and ensure consistently successful outcomes for our clients.

At Harrison Grierson, our first step is to understand the unique needs and challenges of each project. We work closely with our clients to identify their goals and gather information about the site and surrounding area.

We believe that a thorough understanding of the context is essential to creating effective and sustainable solutions.

With a clear understanding of the project goals, we conduct extensive research to inform our design decisions. We analyse data from a wide range of sources, including demographic data, traffic patterns, and environmental factors.

This research helps us to identify opportunities and constraints and develop a design strategy that is tailored to the specific needs of the project.

With a solid foundation of research, we then use our expertise in urban design and engineering to develop a comprehensive strategy for the project. We work closely with our clients to create a design that meets their goals, while also considering the needs of the wider community.

We use advanced technology and 3D modeling tools to create detailed visualisations of the design, which help our clients to understand how the final project will look and function.

With a clear strategy in place, we begin the design phase of the project. Our team of experienced technical professionals work together to develop detailed plans and drawings that are both functional and visually appealing.

We use sustainable design principles to ensure that the final project is not only beautiful, but also has a positive impact on the environment and community.

Once the design is complete, we work closely with our clients to ensure a smooth implementation process. We manage the construction phase, working with contractors and other stakeholders to ensure that the final project is built to the highest standards.

We also provide ongoing support and maintenance services to ensure that the project continues to meet the needs of the community for years to come.

After the project is completed, we conduct a thorough review to evaluate its performance and impact. We gather feedback from our clients, the community, and other stakeholders, and use this information to make any necessary adjustments.

We also use this information to inform our future projects and improve our processes. By continually reviewing and evaluating our work, we ensure that we are providing the best possible service to our clients and creating the most successful outcomes for the community.
