Joy Hoverd

Senior Engineering Geologist

Two words that best describe the RDCL culture?

Interesting, amusing

What’s your most memorable project?

Underground and open pit mining projects in the South Island of NZ and South East Asia. Ethically challenging for me but no other project can present you with the same experience, in terms of engineering geological complexity, large infrastructure requirements, remoteness and personal challenges. And all the big landslide jobs I’ve ever worked on because landslides are my favourite things to ponder.

What do you love about working at RDCL?

RDCL was a very young company when I joined and I quickly learnt that RDCL will take on any challenge, in any location.

Where or how do you reset and recharge?

Physical challenges in nature shared with friends and whanau; mountains, snow, trails, forests, rivers. All of it, all at once!
