WHO WE ARE - CULTURE FIRST

FOCO NZ was established in 2019 by founding director Ronwyn Coulson, an Architect and Project Director with over 20 years experience in the design and project management of construction projects.  Our small practice is based in Christchurch but provides services across New Zealand. 

 

FOCO NZ offers clients a project leadership consultancy service which embraces a culture of collaboration, respect and empowerment reflective of a culturally diverse workplace in 21st century New Zealand. We select our clients and business partners based on a strong alignment of culture, values and principles.   

 

The FOCO way is particularly well suited to stakeholder and reputation sensitive projects,  as well as projects where design quality and budget are critically important.  As we offer both consultancy and coaching,  we are able to provide a tailored and flexible solution for unique projects.  If this sounds like what you may need,  please see our menu of options below.   

 

 

WHAT WE DO

DESIGN 

MANAGEMENT & CO-ORDINATION

As specialist Design Managers,  we know what is required to set up a design team for success,  and how to get people working together collaboratively in an asset driven  BIM environment.  We are experienced in managing complex and difficult projects (and stakeholders), from boutique projects to commercial projects of $200M+   

PROJECT GOVERNANCE & LEADERSHIP

Setting up a project for success and leading a team of experts to deliver a project successfully requires skill, drive and patience. The FOCO way establishes a team culture of mutual respect, professionalism and individual accountability.  We succeed  together, and there is no better sense of achievement than success.
