Daryl Jones

South Island Regional Manager

With 21 years of exposure in the contracting industry, 4 of those in the resource industry in Australia, Daryl is a valuable member to any project team.

Being involved at the senior levels of business has given him great insight into what a business needs to be successful and how to manage and lead its people. Daryl prides himself on his ability to work well as part of a team and encourage others. He also enjoys the responsibility of leadership roles but similarly has no problem taking direction and learning from others.

Daryl brings a diverse knowledge base accumulated from his experience in Subdivisions, Civil Site Works, Earthworks, Drainage, Crushing and Screening, Roading Construction and Maintenance, Management of Local Authority Contracts, Contract Management and Staff Supervision.  With the knowledge and experiences from numerous and varied projects, he has the ability to contribute and add value to any project.

As part of his Regional Manager role, Daryl spends some of his time in project management where he is challenged to consistently deliver complex projects on time, to a high standard, and within the budget constraints. Overseeing project profitability forms a key part of the commercial management aspect of Daryl's role. This is successfully managed with Daryl also responsible for creating the baseline programme for the projects; looking at how it will fit in with overall programme, to ensure his team are tracking on target. With resourcing, Daryl is responsible for making sure the team is equipped with enough people and gear on site to do the works, overseeing this through frequent communication with the team on site throughout the project. For Daryl, project quality starts with first understanding what the team is doing on the ground and ensuring the project is complying with the right specifications. If there are any issues with the design, Daryl will set up a conversation and ensure the client is engaged.
