Octa was founded in Christchurch in 1973, and the Christchurch office at 71 Cambridge Terrace remains our largest with 20 professional staff. All are tertiary qualified and most hold project management qualifications, such as PMP or PRINCE2. The office provides project management services for the Canterbury region and through to Marlborough, Nelson and the West Coast.
