About BBO

Bloxam, Burnett & Olliver (BBO) is a New Zealand based multi-disciplinary company of consulting engineers, planners and surveyors. The company was founded by Martin Bloxam, Reece Burnett and John Olliver. Since that time the company has grown steadily and is now managed by four directors, consisting of John Olliver, Scott Bready, Graeme Jamieson and Tony Keyte.  The Company is owned by key staff, all of whom play an important role in the overall success of projects. BBO offers consultancy services in the fields of engineering, planning, surveying, contract procurement and related disciplines.

BBO have approximately 80 staff, almost all of whom are professionally qualified in their field. Staff turnover is low and ex-employees maintain contact with the company.  Five of the original twelve staff are still employed by the company. Key personnel have resided in Hamilton for many years and have extensive experience in planning, engineering and surveying projects in the Waikato and Central North Island region, as well as further afield.

Despite its size, BBO regularly competes with major national and international consultants for commissions and has built a reputation both in New Zealand and overseas for providing cost effective, innovative, and practical solutions to complex problems.

The company’s formula for success is based on:

  • A talented management team;
  • A highly skilled and experienced team of professionals;
  • A focus on quality assurance and cost control; and
  • A commitment to keeping our clients satisfied and informed.

BBO’s challenging work and friendly environment has resulted in a tight-knit and loyal team that takes a real pride in its work.
