David has been in the civil construction industry for 40 years, with the Local Government sector initially and the private sector for the past 25 years.

David has extensive wind farm CBOP experience from managing the civil works for the first stage of the Tararua Wind Farm (T1 & T2) and went on to set up the Higgins Projects Division in 2004 for the CBOP for the first large scale wind farm in NZ for Meridian Energy; Te Apiti. He subsequently managed the CBOP works on the Tararau T3, Westwind, Mill Creek and Waipipi Wind farms.

David has other major project delivery governance skills built up over his previous roles with Fletcher on the NZTA Kapiti Expressway projects for the MacKays to Peka and Peka Peka to Otaki projects. David is currently representing Goodman Contractors on two boards for the Kainga Ora Te Aranga Alliance and the Te Ahu a Turanga Sub-Alliance for the Manawatu Tararua Highway.

David has recently established DCR Civil Ltd to provide ongoing civil contract management services to various clients across the roading, land development, airfield, port, forestry and energy sectors. Together with Goodman Contractors as a partner, DCR Civil will enter the wind energy CBOP market as a new alternative bringing one of the most experienced and successful teams together.
