Our History

Cameron Gibson and Wells is a long standing Nelson based firm with a proven track record focused on competent leadership and management.

The early 1970’s saw Michael Worseldine and Richard Wells join together to form Worseldine and Wells, providing civil and structural consulting engineering services to the top of the South Island.

In 1994, Simon Cameron & Rod Gibson, joined the team and broadened the capability with experience in environmental and geotechnical engineering. Both were appointed Directors in 1996 with the company name changing to Cameron Gibson & Wells Limited in 1999.

Since that time Kevin McManus accepted the role as Technical Director – Geotech, in 2006. Kevin provides direction for complex geotechnical engineering solutions.

Recently, Cameron Gibson & Wells have welcomed the addition of two new directors, Rowan Puklowski (2010) and Jaden Whiunui (2011).

Each Director brings wide and varied experiences from each field of engineering that is offered and continues to be active professionally.

We are a privately owned company.
