Taku relocated to New Zealand from the UK in March 2020. He brings with him solid experience and robust knowledge of construction. Taku has strong skills in the areas of building surveying, project management, procurement, quality assurance, legislative compliance and costing, and has a keen eye for detail as a result of his strong analytical skills, gained in a previous role in the UK.

At Maynard Marks, Taku provides a wide range of building surveying services to a mix of public and private sector clients. This includes working on schools and universities, hospitals and government buildings, as well as working with commercial property owners, developers, and private residential owners. Taku continues to expand his knowledge of New Zealand legislation and building practices.

Taku takes pride in exceeding each client’s expectations and ensuring open communication at all stages, identifying potential risks associated with the project early and actively working towards finding realistic solutions.

Taku is currently working towards his assessment of professional competence with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the New Zealand Institute of Building Surveyors (NZIBS) to become a Chartered and Registered Building Surveyor.
