Andrew Huang

Civil Graduate (New Plymouth)

Attracted to WSP Opus by the firm’s strong reputation in New Zealand, Andrew’s still pretty new to the WSP Opus family, but he’s already making his mark.

Travelling around Taranaki on a variety of bridge inspection jobs, Andrew loves heading out with one of his colleagues in particular, who he says knows “almost every bridge in the Taranaki region.” The views in some of the more rural areas can be absolutely stunning too!

Working with colleagues who have joined WSP Opus from around the world gets Andrew excited every morning.

“I smile on my way to work every day”

Andrew likes heading into work knowing that the people he works with are so supportive and outgoing.

His advice for students? Stay social and keep up your hobbies while studying – something that is easy to continue with while at WSP Opus (just ask our many social sports teams).

 

 

 

Follow Andrew’s day in the life of a WSP Opus grad

8:00am

My workday starts with a walk along a coastal walkway.

Our WSP Opus office in New Plymouth also has a view of the water. My colleagues are friendly, helpful and easy to work with so I enjoy my office environment.

9:00am

Time for some structural design (wind load) for a sewer tank.

Great to apply my technical knowledge from University to the real world. My start-up projects are small but interesting!

10:00am

Bridge inspection time!

We have bridge inspection contracts with the local council. I’m responsible for checking bridges, culverts, and retaining walls. We’re able to plan our days to achieve a good mix of being in the office and off site work.

12:00pm

Lunch break.

This is the best social time for me. I usually chat with my colleagues during lunch time. We share different experiences about work and life. Many people from my office have different cultural backgrounds – we’re proud of our own culture and respect each other’s culture.

2:00pm

Time to sit down in the office and complete inspection reports for the bridges we inspected this morning.

3:30pm

Weekly structure team meeting.

We plan work for the week and discuss last week’s work including the problems we met and solutions we found. At WSP Opus, people help people.

Looking forward to this!!

Is he available for a Q&A opportunity?

Hi WSP Opus Careers I’m unable to attend this event tomorrow but would like to ask Oliver where he gets his hair cut?

Impreza or lancer?
