About BBR Contech

Experience and innovation are a winning combination.

 

Founded in 1963, BBR Contech has established itself as New Zealand’s leading specialist civil engineering firm. The key to this success in a highly competitive field can be summed up in one word: innovation.

 

Our team has developed unrivalled know-how in the demanding areas of post-tensioning, seismic strengthening and high-tech concrete repairs. We have developed new methodologies and products, and partnered with leading engineering companies from around the world. Above all, we have invested in our design capability, with the goal of supporting our clients in their quest to deliver excellence.

 

We also support new knowledge, such as research projects with the Universities of Auckland and Canterbury that explore post-tensioning and FRP (fibre-reinforced polymer) applications as retrofit solutions for earthquake resistance.
