About Us
Brian Perry is a leading and award-winning New Zealand specialist civils and foundations contractor.  We are in an exciting phase of growth and we continue to undertake a wide range of challenging civil construction projects throughout New Zealand and the South Pacific with specialities including piling retaining walls and ground improvement works to name a few.
