Jeremy Froger

Senior Project Manager


Jeremy has wide-ranging experience working with Councils throughout New Zealand. Over a 15-year period, he has successfully delivered regional growth strategies, policies, resource planning, and management. Projects included planning for growth throughout the Auckland Region, Regional and District Landscape and Natural Environment Assessments, coastal development, wind farm development, South Island hydro scheme assessments and open space acquisitions. Jeremy was regularly called upon as an expert witness for Council, at Environment Court and High Court proceedings.  (Jeremy has a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture which he achieved in 2001).

In 2016, Jeremy joined BBO as Project Manager for Safe Roads Alliance (SRA) (a Waka Kotahi, NZ Transport Agency initiative). Over a 3-year period, Jeremy delivered 13 projects with an approximate value of $88M. Jeremy’s strong delivery, communication and leadership strengths across all phases of SRA projects (from business case development to detailed design and construction), saw him in the role of Regional Delivery Manager (Waikato), then Portfolio Manager for the Waikato region, Wellington, New Plymouth and Hawke’s Bay. In the latter part of 2019, Jeremy was appointed as Deputy Alliance Director seeing through the closeout of the national programme as SRA reached its natural conclusion.

Jeremy continues to lead multiple projects under the current Waka Kotahi Speed and Infrastructure Programme (SIP), as well as three sections of the Waha Kotahi Waikato Expressway programme to lift the highway’s operational speed from 100 to 110 km/hr at Ohinewai, Hampton Downs, and Tamahere.

For Hamilton City Council (HCC), in conjunction with Waka Kotahi, NZ Transport Agency, Jeremy has developed the business cases for Eastern Pathways - Te Ara o te Rawhiti - a programme which aims to improve mode share and cycling and pedestrian connectivity from and through eastern Hamilton to the central city. With business cases and concept approved, HCC and Waka Kotahi, NZ Transport Agency will jointly fund the programme as part of the 2021-24 National Land Transport Programme (NLTP).
