In November 2004 Survey NZ gained IANZ Accreditation to ISO 17020 - inspection body

Terry Reynolds - previous Director, Engineer Surveyor had been inspecting Boilers, Cranes, Lifts, Welding and Pressure Equipment for over eighteen years before setting up Survey NZ as an Inspection Body in its own right. That was 2004, now over 17 years later his name and reputation are well known throughout the industry. With the sudden accidental death of Terry in 2017, the business was purchased by Dean Van Buuren and is managed by Shane Heselwood.

Survey NZ operates a robust Quality Management System (QMS) Safeguarding our health, our environment and our economy which requires standards - and people committed to upholding them. IANZ works closely with us through annual audits to ensure we are meeting these standards through 'accreditation'.

Survey NZ aims to provide you with a quality, prompt, reliable competitive service at reasonable cost to all our clients. We provide professional Mechanical & Engineering Compliance in NDT and equipment inspection services in the Nelson region as well as throughout New Zealand, and of course overseas ie the Pacific and Asian regions.

Hi Guys

Thanks for confirming Ian Brumwell of SurveyNZ as the independent weld inspector for the Toki Poutangata Footbridge in Westport.

I've worked with Ian in the past on the Water of Leith Footbridge and have recently verified his qualifications are up to date. Perfect man for the job and we look forward to working with him again!
