About Us


G.P. Friel Ltd has been operating in the greater Wellington region since 1999 and is a well established firm in the installation of underground infrastructure.

We are a privately owned, family business that has worked hard to build strong, long term relationships with our clients based on mutual trust, honesty and our ability to deliver quality projects on time and to budget. We specialize in using innovative ideas, client partnering and trenchless techniques. We are experienced in working in a variety of environments, including confined and deep excavation works, high voltage sub-stations, state highways and the unique Wellington street environment. Our projects include sewer, stormwater and water renewal and maintenance for local government, stormwater upgrades for roading companies, drainage work for commercial construction firms and providing connections for new properties.

Our clients rely on our knowledge of the relevant codes and regulations required to carry out infrastructure work. We value and invest in our people and are proud that our success is based on their skills, determination and hard work.

G.P Friel Ltd uses a cloud based construction management software called Procore. Procore enables contract management of the project to be effortless and transparent. It allows all parties of the contract to remotely organise and manage documents, project plans, RFI’s and health and safety.

Reports can be produced on demand and all daily logs recorded. Health and safety is updated instantly from on-site or at the office which allows the engineer to monitor the project with minimal effort and peace of mind.
