WHAT OUR
CLIENTS SAY

“Apart from offering exceptional value in the area of Safety and Project Management, John, Steve and the McMillan team brought with them a level of business acumen that ensured their solutions ticked all of the programme, safety and quality boxes. Their experience gave them the edge over other contractors, allowing them the ability to anticipate commercial roadblocks early and provide options in an upfront and transparent manner. This provided confidence for decisions to be made quickly and appropriately.”

Rex Chaney, Commercial Manager, NZTA

“McMillan delivered five rigs, which drilled many thousands of metres of core. They delivered quality core, and also undertook some in-situ testing. They managed subcontractors and their set-up was above normal standards for safety and environmental protection. They were helpful, communicative and flexible, which made the management of the ground investigation easy. I was very happy with their physical work and their open, collaborative approach to project management. I would not hesitate to recommend them.”

Ross Roberts, Head of Ground Engineering, Jacobs

“We have worked with the team at McMillan Drilling on a wide range of projects and have found them to have a sound understanding of drilling practice and to be willing to work with us to achieve our desired project outcomes. McMillan’s approach to quality, environmental and health and safety planning facilitates smooth operation of the project.”

Ann Williams, Technical Director - Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology, BECA

“Up to six drill rigs were employed at any one time to complete the work within project timeframes to deliver geotechnical data and samples for laboratory testing. McMillan demonstrated flexbility and commitment to achieving quality results. They accommodated the additional requirements of third-party landowners, and they were responsive when things did not go to plan.”

Stephen Grace, Senior Projects Engineer, Watercare Services

“McMillan Drilling’s attention to quality, well trained staff, as well as their health & safety record whilst working in hazardous environments, were the main reasons they were chosen over other companies for the work.”

Stuart Cartwright, Geologist, The Well-Connected Alliance

“McMillian Drilling are considered by us to be a premier drilling contractor in New Zealand. If we have a project that requires detailed planning and delivery, McMillan are top of the list. They have a proven history of interfacing extremely well with stakeholders, a reputation that is very important on larger infrastructure projects where stakeholders are an important aspect to successful delivery.”

Bevan Hill, Geotechnical Engineer, The Fletcher Construction Company

“McMillan’s have proven themselves to be reliable and more than competent with instrumentation installation procedures and practice. We are sure we will have the pleasure to work with them again in the near future and look forward to the opportunity.”
