Cameron Oosthuizen

Senior Quantity Surveyor

Starting as an Estimator, Cam has worked his way up to Senior Quantity surveyor due to his attention to detail, sharp wit, and willingness to get things right. He is the office joker and has made up a nickname for everyone within the organisation! He is a sport fanatic, and is a die hard fan of the Springboks. Since winning the RWC, the office banter has increased significantly.

Daniel Pepperell

Director & Compliance Manager

Daniel has been in interiors for the past 16 years in a variety of roles. Always looking to make continues improvements, he is now heading up Compliance and systems within the company. Not afraid to be vocal or change the way ‘normal’ business is done in the construction industry, he is passionate about interiors and the people that work within it. He believes it is a lessor known trade that does a large part of the work and deserves more recognition. Daniel started his own business in Tauranga in 2006, building it from the ground up before joining with Marks business in 2015. Daniel also has over 15 years experience working on not for profit boards, both locally and nationally; he believes good governance is a key to success. Daniel has a passion for coffee and gets really annoyed at cafes that don’t know the difference between a Long black and a Americano!
