“Craig McQuoid from CM Consulting has been a valuable resource to Waihi Beach Lifeguard Services Inc for several years. Craig has provided expert advice regarding our building where we provide lifeguarding, patrol and search and rescue services. As a charity operated by volunteers, it is difficult for the Board to be across regulatory and council requirements, fire regulations and building warrant of fitness, to name a few. Craig has overseen the responsibility of the Club in the community and ensures we meet all of these regulations.
Craig has project managed several projects for the Club, from design to permitting to the build. He has connected us with experts to help us construct functional mobile towers for lifeguards to patrol from the beach and a solar power system to make the Club sustainable and save costs. Craig has taken the pressure off the volunteers as he understands what we need to commit to and has streamlined many processes, resulting in longevity and projects that are fit for purpose and meet the necessary regulations. With limited funds available, we must achieve the right outcome the first time, and Craig’s is dedicated to getting it right.
Craig’s contribution allows the Club to focus on lifeguarding, patrolling and search and rescue services, as we are not tied up with logistics. He has taken an incredible amount of pressure off the Club and is very easy to work with. In this regard, Craig is the ‘lifesaver’.”
