Originating in Whangarei as a small Architectural firm with gradual expansion through the 1960’s and 70’s, the company progressed with additional offices being established in Auckland (1971) and Rotorua (1974). Structural and Civil Engineering Design was incorporated into the practice during the early 1970’s. Our company name evolved over the years, incorporating the original directors, Murray Stiffe and Allan Hooker. In April 2000 the current name became Stiffe Hooker Limited.  Kevin Mullaly joined the firm in the 1980’s as a Structural Engineer and became Owner/Managing Director in 2005. In 2015 Andrew Bell and Michael Drinnan joined Kevin as company directors broadening the team leadership and client relations.
