“Their team has been most helpful, obliging and are happy in their work. They are extremely easy to work with"

Carolyn and Leon Mudford - Burnham House Ltd

Peter Howcroft

Director & Founder

Peter has been working at height longer than rope access was a concept.
He personally developed techniques to improve work site efficiency, and puts a large emphasis on continual up-skilling and retraining. Always looking out for the next cutting edge technology or skill to improve.
Workplace culture is paramount to Pete. He considers team morale as the ultimate bottom line of the business (and has a lot of fun in attempting to see that established!)

Joseph Howcroft

General Manager

Joseph joined the Off The Ledge team in 2003, and was quickly recognised as a motivated and energised worker.
Now, he is at the forefront of the business, managing the day to day activities in all areas as our general manager.
Off The Ledge has seen massive growth since Joseph has taken on this role, as he is passionate about the work,
the team, and every job right down to the smallest detail.

Carl Skelton

Estimator

Carl has been a dedicated member of the Off The Ledge team since joining in 2003. After spending over a decade working on rope himself, knowing each building in the Auckland skyline, his expert knowledge in all areas of workplace management has given him a huge advantage in accurate quoting.
His understanding of workplace hazards and task analysis has enabled him to produce quotes that are cost effective, and also comprehensive in health and safety management.

Company Culture

Off The Ledge is known for it's company culture of honour and respect.
We have people tell us that they would love to join the company, if only they didn't have to work at height!
We joke that like "Hotel California" that "you can check out anytime but you can never leave!"
There is a strong brotherhood bond when you hang with your teammate for 8 hours a day on nothing more than two 11mm ropes .

The team not only enjoys one another on the face of buildings.
Whether it is their daily dart competitions, weekend surfing trips, or the annual snowboarding Christmas trip to Cardrona, it is a high energy culture that daily celebrates the gift of life!

Our hope is that our crews will not only provide a great trade service for you, but free of charge, may brighten up your day
