The foundation of any project is based on great relationships. Happy clients are our priority. Here is why we do what we do.

“The dataset provided by Fox & Associates exceeded our expectations in both quality and timeliness. It provided us with rich imagery and accurate 3D information to enable all the stakeholders to make good decisions with confidence and study the terrain in detail from a desktop location.

As Principal to the contract, it was critical to Waka Kotahi to have a safe methodology that minimised requiring people to work on a busy road in a challenging and remote alpine environment. The unique solution provided by Fox & Associates gave us that assurance.”

Steve Cottrell - Waka Kotahi’s Principal Property Manager 

"Fox and Associates came highly recommended and genuinely seek to contribute to our success. Each year we partner together on our covenanting programme to protect special areas of land in perpetuity, creating a legacy of biodiversity protection for future generations.

These projects can be complex and involve multiple landowners. The staff at Fox and Associates understand the rural community on Banks Peninsula and develop great rapport with our landowners. They continue to make a significant contribution to the Peninsula community now and into the future" 

Maree Burnett - General Manager Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust

"Fox and Associates innovative approach looked at the best outcome for the project. The team are trustworthy and reliable, and they take pride in what they do ensuring a high-quality result is achieved.

They are quick to act which was a huge help to the project. At Sicon we look forward to continuing our strong relationship with Fox and Associates into the future"

David Wilson - CEO Sicon Ltd

"Craig at Fox and Associates was recommended to me as he had extensive knowledge and experience of the peninsula when it came to applications for tricky subdivision consents. I found Craig’s knowledge of the subdivision process invaluable.

Their field survey staff are a top crew and good to work with and went that extra distance. They communicated well and professionally in resolving issues as they arose. No hesitations recommending Fox and Associates."

"Fox and Associates are our go-to Surveying partner and we can rely on them to perform their work professionally and precisely. We have received, from many clients, unsolicited feedback about ‘what lovely guys those surveyors are’.

"We have a long history working with Fox and Associates and they have always been there to assist us, using both traditional and modern survey mediums i.e, aerial surveying with drones, manual surveying methods, and underwater depth sounding, to produce all-encompassing maps of above and below groundwater excavation.  On numerous occasions they have gone above and beyond, supporting us outside of standard business processes."

Hayden Leach GM - Christchurch Readymix Concrete Ltd

"David, I would like to thank you for the broad range of advice and skills that you provided us with to get our new Seven Oaks School up and running.

I described you to people as, 'David Fox, our Specialist Generalist'. You helped facilitate discussions regarding the site layout and the overall development, the location of school buildings, the design and parameters for the school grounds. You identified the location of the carpark, resolved traffic access issues to Murphys and Quaifes roads, and designed the location of the stormwater ponds and finally resolved issues with the Council regarding swales along the Quaifes Road boundary. 

Thank you, we couldn't have done this without you."  

Bruce McIntyre - Seven Oaks 

"I value the Fox & Associates' teamwork approach and the ability of Carl and Michael to bring in, and work with other consultants on my projects. Their ability to absorb and consider different ideas, their hillside development experience, and the relationship that I've built with David, Carl and Micahel over many years is the reason for our 30+ year working relationship."

Dan van Asch - Redmund Spur 

"Fox & Associates provide us with an extremely professional and innovative land development and surveying service. The information that we request is always accurate, Carl brings a calibre of expertise that we do not have in-house, and the detail achieved with the drone data and computerised plans amazes me."

Gary Casey - Ashburton Contracting Ltd 

"Fox and Associates are well-established with extensive experience in hill sub-division activities and my first meeting with David Fox left me feeling reassured the project would be professionally managed. Fox and Associates were able to develop and provide practical solutions to overcome challenges and demonstrated leadership through successfully managing the many relationships on my behalf, including contractors, Council, and environmental parties resulting in a successful outcome for the project."
