Originally from the Isle of Man, Chloe has spent her career working in different pockets of the world such as London and Canada. Her early stages of work focused on tunnels in London.
In 2017, she made the move to Wellington to further her career in engineering. This decision was one she made on a whim, she says.
“I was offered roles in Wellington and Sydney, and I didn’t know much about either place so chose Wellington and moved five weeks later.
“Now I just love Wellington. You can access so much here, there’s great places for hiking and biking, and everything is on your doorstep. There’s a lot of engineering demand here too so it’s an amazing city to be in for my career.”
Her first major project in the region was to work on Transmission Gully where she oversaw the bridgework. She then moved on to HEB Construction and worked rebuilding wharves affected by the Kaikoura earthquake.
After working in major structures for a few years, she has taken on a whole new challenge as the project engineer at the Moa Point sludge minimisation facility.
