Founding Director and registered surveyor Noel Bonisch initially registered it as Noel Bonisch Limited in 1973. As the staff roll grew, the company became known as Bonisch Surveyors.
Over its lifetime the company has been involved in many high profile projects throughout the Southland and Otago regions – from the Tiwai Point aluminium smelter and Fonterra developments at Edendale; to rural subdivisions in the Gibbston Valley and large scale residential developments in Te Anau, Winton and Invercargill.
Changes in land use saw the industry become increasingly multi-disciplinary and, in recognition of this, the company offering was broadened to include a whole range of professional land development consulting services. As staff numbers grew to double figures a branch office was opened in Te Anau where Bonisch continues to be active in the local community.
In 2010, long time employees Boyd Wilson and Craig Ireland took over the reins on Noel's retirement and registered Bonisch Consultants Limited. Under their leadership, Bonisch Consultants is continuing to grow, with a new office opened in Christchurch in 2012 to support the rebuild.
A can-do attitude and a commitment to personal service has seen Bonisch Consultants build a strong relationship with a number of national clients, and today the company works on a diverse range of projects throughout New Zealand.
