Dominic Hollands - Auckland Central
Region: Auckland Central
Home renovation consultant/s: Dominic Hollands
Dominic comes to Refresh with 15 years of experience in technical design and project management gained mainly in the infrastructure and building industry.
His early career in the petroleum industry took him from scorching Middle East deserts to the freezing North Sea, before forging a career as a ground engineer in the UK. Since returning to NZ in 2010 Dominic continued to work in the ground engineering PM and design space. Clients over the years have included Auckland Council, Watercare, the Ministry of Education and The Department of Corrections.
With Refresh, Dominic has been able to apply his extensive design and PM expertise, whilst also allowing him to use his communication and people skills to work with clients to realise their renovation dreams.
“One thing that I appreciate through my experience over the years is that a carefully staged and managed build process is essential to produce the desired outcome, whether it be a residential kitchen or extension, or constructing a tunnel or bridge. This process is central to Refresh”.
Since purchasing his first house many years ago Dominic has always worked to improve his living space. “I have a soft spot for places which are in need of doing up, realising their potential once again. And having previously renovated houses in both the UK and NZ I am aware of the stresses and pitfalls which accompany renovation”.
Dominic and his partner Chrissy have 2 young children and live in Onehunga. Outside of business Dominic likes to cycle (if only to be reminded of how hilly Auckland is) and chasing his kids around the house.
