Origin Fire’s First Year

August 30, 2016

We have officially turned one, celebrating our first birthday and realising just how much we have achieved in our first year.

A new name and an accompanying look, feel and style, a well-located functioning office, a great web site, this newsletter and, most significantly, some wonderful projects, completed, in progress and looking forward to completion.

For those of you who aren’t aware of our history, Origin Fire was formed as part of a rebrand for the fire engineering Auckland team of Pacific Consultants.

Pacific Consultants was established in Auckland in 1997 by Sam Mukhtar (Mechanical, Hydraulics and Pools), Bruce Anderson (Structural) and Michael James (Fire, Building Services). They were joined several years later by Geoff Carter (Electrical). In 2002 the Wellington office of Pacific Consultants opened. Then, in 2014, Michael James decided to become independent of Pacific Consultants and he set up Origin Fire Consultants.

With a growing team of 10 and plans to add more late 2016 and early 2017, the team are looking forward to the future.
