Martin Walton is one of Jasmax’s most experienced Senior Technical Architects, who works across complex transport and infrastructure projects.
With nearly 30 years’ architectural experience, Martin has been responsible for the delivery of many high-profile small- and large-scale projects throughout New Zealand. These include the complex roof geometry and detailing for Forsythe Barr Stadium – the country’s largest indoor events arena and the world’s first natural turf stadium to have a fully fixed roof, as well as technical delivery of the $150m City Rail Link Britomart Station upgrades, forming part of the largest infrastructure project New Zealand has ever undertaken.
Throughout his career, Martin has worked across various project typologies, including commercial workplace developments, urban design, public and private hospitals, and universities, and is currently working on several new projects for City Rail Link.
As a technical specialist, Martin employs a highly collaborative approach to the design process and encourages a wide range of input, not only from the project team, but also technical consultants, artists and local community groups. He is skilled in stakeholder engagement and consultation, design co-ordination and management, and contract documentation, specifications and administration.
