Skytec believe in improving resilience together, with you!
Director Bernard Toh is a senior structural & geotechnical engineer with more than 23 years' professional experience. He has worked worldwide - including Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India and throughout NZ. He has been actively involved with advising and helping government agencies and councils, through seismic assessment of buildings in NZ and in Indonesia, under the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
Locally, Bernard has been involved in prestigious projects like the seismic design of defence buildings in Ohakea Airbase, seismic strengthening of the Wellington Town Hall and other heritage buildings. He investigates hazard risk on remote indigenous sites, as well as schools, libraries, sport, non-profit, historic, commercial, industrial and residential sites. With this experience, he can work with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds. His current passion is to help communities of the world improve their resilience against disasters caused by floods, earthquakes and tsunamis.
With our size, we respond quickly and more effectively to our clients and we have proven this with our existing client base. The quick turnaround time is also achieved in projects because we do the work ourselves and don't rely on third parties, which often slows a project down due to their own commitments. When you talk to Skytec, you talk to the people who do the work."
