About the Transport & Infrastructure Team
The Transport & Infrastructure work is being led by Courtney Hart and Tom Hopkins under workstream lead Simon Moran.
Tom Hopkins is a civil engineering technician and project manager. After graduating from Lincoln University with a Bachelor of Parks and Recreation Management in 1990 he spent several years working seasonally in the ski industry and for DOC, as well as in Antarctica. Up until joining the Milford Opportunities Project he had worked full time for DOC for 25 years managing a range of exciting projects including hut replacements such as Mueller and Plateau Huts at Aoraki Mt Cook National Park and the Paparoa and Pike29 Memorial Tracks in Paparoa National Park. Over this time he also gained a Diploma in Engineering (Civil) and experience in undertaking significant community and stakeholder engagement.
Tom is a keen tramper, skier, and mountain biker, but now mostly only goes mountaineering or fly fishing from the comfort of the couch. Professionally, he’s never more excited than when he’s involved in projects that facilitate peoples’ enjoyment of New Zealand’s wild places.
