Participating in Bayleys Plate up for a Purpose


Our fledgling company began in Christchurch in 1932. Our Christchurch office has grown in size and strength over the years and we now have branches in Greymouth, Nelson and Timaru. Davis Ogilvie currently has 95 staff in the South Island who have worked on a wide range of projects.

Davis Ogilvie has a long history of successfully working within the construction and land development industries. By covering structural, civil and geotechnical engineering, land surveying, resource management and environmental science, we are able to simplify construction, design and development, to create better solutions for our clients.

Why have you decided to do Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose this year?

Davis Ogilvie believes the work the Christchurch City Mission is so important and we have supported them in many other events. This will be our first time being involved in Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose and I am really looking forward to it as I love cooking and getting creative in the kitchen.

Who’s your chef hero and why?

Al Brown. I love his recipes, also he comes across as a great guy and would be laugh to go out for an afternoon’s fishing, cook up a feast and have a few beers afterwards!

What’s your signature dish?

It’s relative to the audience; my kids would say pancakes (drowning in Maple syrup) but my personal favourite is a seafood broth with key ingredients being white wine and seafood.
