Congratulations Chris Freer - T+T's newest Fellow

Engineering New Zealand describes the accomplishment of becoming a fellow as “having made it to the top of the engineering profession and achieved outstanding results”.

We’re proud to share that Chris Freer, T+T's Pacific Business Development Manager, senior geotechnical engineer and project director, has been appointed as a Fellow by Engineering NZ.

Chris is deeply passionate about improving the economic and social wellbeing of Pacific Island nations as evidenced by his 30-year career in the region.

Chris’ contribution to, and involvement in, engineering, disaster remediation, water resources and climate change resilience projects in the Pacific include upgrades of Faleolo International Airport in Samoa, Bauerfield International Airport in Vanuatu and multiple infrastructure projects from Papua New Guinea to Pitcairn Island.

He has served on the Board of Engineers without Borders, and the NZ Pacific Business Council.

Chris has positively influenced scores of young engineers, geologists and technicians at T+T with his collaborative style of approach, including at times, providing tips on his other passion, fly fishing!

Congratulations Chris on becoming a Fellow – a spectacular achievement and testament to his commitment to improving communities in some of our most vulnerable nations.
