Sustainability provides a sense of responsibility, care and well-being – it’s the right thing to do.

It affects where we live, work and play.

The origins of Eitelberg Consulting Limited started as a retail property consultancy with a sustainability approach. These core skill sets remain and are directly transferable to the businesses I operate today.


End-to-end property management services offered:

  • Advocate for innovative solutions

  • Waste and cost reduction

  • Sustainable and green building design

  • Degrowth principles

  • Property management – property portfolio relocations, expansions and consolidations

  • Project management – nationwide retail fitouts, refurbishments and rebrands

  • Review and implementation of delivery processes

  • Restructuring and establishment of new teams

  • Corporate governance

In 2008, I initiated and delivered New Zealand's, and possibly Australasia's, first purpose-built retail premises incorporating green building design features. With no rating tools available at the time, this was deemed a pathfinder project with the New Zealand Green Building Council utilising this project as a benchmark.

Construction Client Protocols


A four-person committee formed by the New Zealand Construction Clients Group, a subsidiary of Constructing Excellence New Zealand, created the Construction Client Protocols. I was fortunate to lead this committee with a commitment to adopt best practice principles.


The document established an industry-recognised set of protocols for the New Zealand market that advocates ‘best value’ and fosters strong leadership from clients and strong working relationships between clients and the supply chain in the construction industry.


The purpose was to change the mindset from that of a ‘lowest cost’ attitude to one of ‘best value’ – the most advantageous trade-off for the client between price and performance.

Published for the New Zealand Property and Construction Industry, it was endorsed by the New Zealand Property Council and the Department of Building and Housing.
