TOBA Projects’ Directors: Aaron Clarkson, Paul Cannin and Umesh Daya first met in Vancouver, Canada while on their OE. They shared a passion for meticulous project management, efficient solutions and sustainable outcomes.
In 2018 – with all three back in Auckland - TOBA Projects took off.
Initially, with Aaron and Paul’s expertise in the infrastructure and energy space; then soon after with Umesh’s building sector proficiency.
TOBA Projects gets its name from a particularly memorable project where both Aaron and Paul worked: a run-of-river hydro power scheme in British Columbia’s TOBA Inlet.
Only accessible by float plane or boat, the TOBA site presented unique hazards: avalanches, flooding, rockfalls, and the occasional grizzly bear. While challenging, TOBA was a rewarding experience and cemented friendship, collaborative working style, and intent to create a leading project management firm.
