Steven Rankin

Director | BE(Env) CMEngNZ CPEng


As a Director and Principal Civil/Environmental Engineer at Chester, Steven brings a unique mix of leadership and pragmatic nous to the whole company.

Steven is strongly outcome-driven, and has built a reputation for adding value both to projects and to the teams he is responsible for leading. Having been involved in Chester since 2008, he has been instrumental in the growth and success experienced by the company – both through his technical skills as a Chartered Professional Engineer, and his commitment to delivering the best possible outcome for clients.

He has over 10 years’ experience designing and managing a large variety of Civil projects throughout the wider Auckland Region, and Fiji. Notably, Steven played a central role in the large Vunabaka Bay Development in Fiji, where we worked alongside a wider development team to deliver one of the Pacific’s best integrated tourism developments.

One of Steven’s passions is developing professional practitioners to be future leaders within Chester and the wider industry. A core principle he operates from is that the combination of trust and honesty is absolutely critical for the success of people and projects.

Outside of work, Steven takes time out by playing golf, or getting out fishing or snowboarding.
