“I enjoy collaborating with Clients, Suppliers, and Contractors to bring ideas to life. Developing projects and seeing them come to fruition is a rewarding process. Delivering multi-faceted and complex projects is a passion, and I thrive in that environment. The bigger the challenge the better. There are many processes required through the journey from concept to keys that sit outside of standard construction project management, and construction project management is just one area where Scope can offer Clients the best value.”

An award-winning Senior Project Manager, Kelly has over 15 years’ construction industry experience in New Zealand and Australia. Recently awarded the 2020 NZIOB Industry Award for his project management work on the Otangarei Papakainga in Whangārei, Kelly has a broad experience base of small and large-scale projects across multiple disciplines. His project portfolio includes land and housing developments, multi-million dollar commercial buildings, art galleries, warehouses, and factories through to billion-dollar mining, oil, and gas projects.

Kelly’s engineering background provides him with a keen ability to analyse and interpret the technical aspects of projects, enabling him to provide well-rounded, practical advice on all aspects of project management. He works extensively with government ministries and clients on funding applications for community, Māori and Iwi-led projects, playing a pivotal role in getting projects over the line from concept to keys.

Kelly has served as Senior Project Manager for several of Scope’s most notable recent Te Tai Tokerau Northland development projects, including the Hundertwasser Art Centre, Te Ora Hou sports facilities, and The Salvation Army.
