Akshay is one of our talented Project Managers. He completed his Masters in Construction Project Management in 2017 and then worked as an Assistant Project manager for a Real Estate Developer in India. He also completed a Graduate Diploma in Construction Project Management in 2019 at UNITEC. This has allowed Akshay to gain a broad knowledge of the New Zealand Construction Industry.

Akshay has a background in architecture, with experience in developing designs, extracting quantities, and performing design coordination between site and office. This combination of Architecture and Project Management qualifications helps Akshay to understand the design and how this is converted into bricks and mortar through construction.

At Maynard Marks, Akshay works as a junior project manager on a range of projects, providing contract administration services including drafting Engineers Instructions, dealing with snagging, taking minutes, drafting payment claim certificates, tracking, and documenting Requests for Information from sites in Newforma (our project management tool at Maynard Marks).

Akshay is keen to develop and gain more knowledge of Green Building technologies and has researched creating an application plugin for integrating Green Certification Calculation in BIM Software (AutoCAD/Revit) as a part fulfilling his Masters degree.

Learning new and trending technologies gives Akshay great satisfaction. He has solid experience in using AutoCAD, Google SketchUp, and Photoshop Software. He can also use AutoCAD Revit and Navisworks Manage (BIM Software) to develop 3D and to run clash detections. In his free time, Akshay loves to develop 3D models using these visualization software packages and is always in search of new challenges.
