Trevor Griffiths

“As one of the Founding Directors of Griffiths & Associates—now Scope—my motivation for starting our project management firm in 2003 was to provide clients in the Region with great client-side representation. Originally from the UK, at 21 years old, I led the first European-Japanese Joint Venture project post-World War II—a new Nissan car factory in northeast England. It was a high-profile project with 3,500 men on site and an immovable deadline—a political project symbolic of the uniting of two great nations. It was an immense amount of pressure and expectation for a young man and is an experience that drives my work ethic and passion for Project Management to today.”

Trevor began his career in the industry in 1975 as a graduate in the UK, spending 8 years on major capital works throughout the UK before moving to New Zealand. In New Zealand, he has been heavily involved with numerous civil engineering and large infrastructure projects across the country. His project portfolio includes a spectrum of complex, iconic projects, from the Old Government Buildings in Wellington to the Town Hall and Civic Theatre in Auckland to Te Matau ā Pohe – The Lower Hātea Crossing in Whangārei. He has managed or directed hundreds of projects for the Ministry of Education, mostly in Te Tai Tokerau Northland, and takes immense pride in the contributions these projects have made to student education throughout our community.


A known industry leader and the recipient of multiple industry recognition awards, Trevor was inducted as a New Zealand Institute of Building (NZIOB) Fellow in 1999. Outside construction and property, Trevor is married to Jo and has two grown sons. To say he loves life at Matapouri would be an understatement.


Trevor is on the Board of Directors of the local Chamber of Commerce, Chairman of the Northland Football Club, a Matapouri Community Board Member, Hundertwasser Art Centre Board Member, and Chairman of the Northland Branch of the NZIOB.
