Jason Bretherton

Technical Director Buildings
New Zealand

Jason is passionate about energy efficiency and sustainability, and strives to deliver a high degree of integration by applying a whole-of-life approach. This challenges traditional thinking and propels it into horizons well beyond the (often) short duration of the design and construction phase of many projects. 

As his practice has grown so has the scale and complexity of the projects and this has seen him involved in building and infrastructure projects associated with schools, hospitals, prisons and commercial buildings. 

One of the highlights was the establishment of a Strategic Asset Management Framework for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. 

Of all, the most career defining experience was was living through the devastating earthquakes that have occurred in Christchurch and Canterbury since 2010. 

In 2017 Jason was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation for his outstanding contribution on Christchurch’s Justice & Emergency Services Precinct construction project.

His areas of expertise include Project Director & Principal Designer for Multidiscplinary Projects, Electrical Building Services Design, Power Reticulation & Distribution, Energy Management, Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) including Greenstar & NABERS Ratings and Engineering Services Infrastructure Development & Strategic Planning for Portfolios.
