Company History

Peter Clifton commenced surveying in the region, from offices at 45 Elizabeth St, Warkworth.

Ron Buckton commenced employment with Peter Clifton as an Articled Surveyor.

Ron purchased the practice from Peter, renaming it RH Buckton.

Ron moved the practice to the Mill Stream Building at 17 Elizabeth St, Warkworth.

The Practice moved to offices at 20 Neville St, Warkworth and at this time employed four staff members.

Tony Hayman joined the practice as a graduate surveyor from Otago University.

Rick O’Flaherty came to the practice from Whangarei. The practice was soon after renamed RH Buckton and Associates to reflect the increasing responsibilities of Tony and Rick. By this time the business had grown to about nine staff including an Administration Manager.

The Practice was renamed Buckton and Associates.

Ron Buckton retired and Tony and Rick took over the practice, now named Buckton Consultants Ltd.

The Neville St offices were demolished to make way for a retail development and this provided an opportunity for the Practice to be rebranded as Buckton Consulting Surveyors Ltd, with a shift to new office premises at 16 Mill Lane, Warkworth.
