Until 2018, Jon Patman was Alliance Manager at Total Bridge Services, looking after Auckland’s most iconic asset, the Auckland Harbour Bridge. During his time there, he led the transition process from a performance specified contract to an alliance model and successfully secured three renewals for the maintenance and management alliance contract for the bridge.

The strong strategic focus of the contract manager role involved forward work planning, strategic planning, asset management, commercial management and delivery of maintenance and operations outcomes for the performance specified maintenance contract (PSMC). A key outcome was to ensure the safety, reliability and compliance for bridge operations and maintenance. The role also included governance, project management, the development of people and culture, client liaison, commercial management, innovation, technical review and development, and implementation of accredited QHSE systems.

A strong business development professional and an experienced alliances manager within the civil engineering industry, Jon has skills in:

  • project engineering
  • asset management
  • program management
  • construction safety

When not in the office, Jon spends his time snowboarding, surfing and keeping fit.

On the 22nd September, the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) marked their 200th year anniversary with ICE200. The family event, ‘Engineering the Future’, held at The Cloud in Auckland on 22 September 2018, attracted more than 3,000 visitors.

There were over 25 exhibitors at the event, including local government institutions, engineering design firms, contractors, suppliers and equipment specialists.

They were challenged with presenting engineering in approachable, interactive ways. These included guided tours of a dredging barge moored next to the venue, virtual reality experiences, creative competitions, and an ICE Cardboard City.
