John Green

Senior Associate

Learning trades at high school gave John a thirst for a practical career, so he completed an apprenticeship to gain his electrician qualification. It was then a natural step to complete a degree in electrical engineering.
The practical and problem-solving skills involved in John’s role continues to drive him today, in a career he credits as allowing him to understand how things work in projects covering a range of disciplines.

On one side John possesses technical expertise and is detail-orientated and thorough, while on the other his communication skills come to the fore when collaborating with contractors and working with clients.
John’s wealth of experience has now led to his involvement in the proposal and bid side of gaining new business at Pacific Commissioning.


Recent Projects

Christchurch Civic Building (CCB), Hereford St, Christchurch

CCB was our first major project in Christchurch and the first Greenstar 6-star rated build in New Zealand.  The project involved the refurbishment of the old NZ Post building including the addition of a new extension in order to provide office accommodation for Christchurch City Council.  The building services included tri-generation plant, displacement ventilation and a complex smoke control system and Pacific Commissioning played a key role in the commissioning of the building. 

Hillmorton SMHS, Christchurch

Pacific Commissioning were appointed as the ICA on the SMHS project that involved the construction of a High and Complex Needs (HCN) building, Integrated Family Service Centre (IFSC) and Energy Centre.  The services included water cooled heat pump chillers utilising artesian bores as the heat and coolth source, standby generator system and specialist systems for the mental health facilities.  The SMHS project is part of a wider site masterplan that is planned for the Hillmorton site.

Data Centre, Christchurch 

The benchmark for South Island data centres, this project included a new build, together with refurbishing an existing building. Added to the mix was the challenge of ensuring that all existing data was kept live, with no disruption while new infrastructure was installed, and a new data hall was built. The advanced technology used and sophisticated level of engineering services made the data centre a high pressure project. Handover was completed on time, all done while maintaining excellent relationships with services contractors, before handing over to the client allowing them to interact fully with the building.
