Arthur Park's contribution to the Wellington skyline stretches back more than 30 years.
As consulting engineer on such landmark projects as the 10 storey Duxton Hotel in the heart of Wellington, the West Plaza Hotel and the city's most established girls' college, Samuel Marsden in Karori, Arthur has established a reputation for his commitment to quality.
He's stayed at the leading edge with his work on Park Road Post, Wellington's world leading post-production film studio and sound stage in Miramar. And that's just the most recent in a long line of public and private commercial and residential projects over the past three decades.
"We're good at what we do, and in many areas - such as seismic design - we're better than the rest. Other firms come to us for input into their projects."
Arthur has a Doctorate from Canterbury University, he's a fellow of IPENZ and has held the presidency of the Association of Consulting Engineers of New Zealand.
His experience comes from almost 30 years as an engineer. With five years' experience under his belt after graduation, Arthur set up his own structural consultancy, A G Park & Partners in 1978. Seven years later he merged his practice to form Clendon Burns & Park. Now CBP is one of the trusted names in structural engineering in Wellington, New Zealand and internationally.
The strength of the practice? "Partner input and personalised service seems to get the best results for clients, proven by the fact that a large part of CBP's business comes from referrals." With a logical and transparent management structure, Arthur and his partners have prepared CBP for a bright future.
When he's not engineering, you might find Arthur windsurfing or somewhere up a mountain: he's taught six kids to ski and is an active member of a Ruapehu ski club.
