About Us

Bartlett Concrete Placing Ltd is a leading concrete construction company in the South Island. Proudly Canterbury owned and operated, we have been known as BCP in the Christchurch market now for more than a decade.

BCP was established back in 1996, with a handful of keen young men with the drive to be the best business in the trade for concrete construction.
Since then, we have delivered in excess of 2 million square meters of high-quality concrete structures to our customers!

Always eager to improve our position in the market,  we have focused on implementing a robust management team over the past 10 years.
With a range of background experience from each manager, we have been able to successfully improve our systems and protocols to enable us to be quality leaders in the Concrete industry.

BCP continues to grow, from starting out with a dozen men to now employing over 100 staff, we all share the same values and strive to strengthen the name and good reputation of BCP.
We pride ourselves on our proven ability for successful project completion on time and on budget as well as maintaining high health and safety standards.

Pumping and Placing

Michael Smith
has been with BCP for over 13 years. He leads the pumping and placing division with the support of a strong dedicated crew to ensure the quality of work is up to the BCP standard, no matter the project.
He brings years of concrete construction experience to the table, and has been involved in major projects such as;


The pumping and placing division has been up and running since BCP’s inception, however, in 2003 we purchased our first Laser Screed which completely changed the way Canterbury saw floors being placed in the industry.
Until 2013, BCP were the only Laser Screed operators in the South Island, which has us at the forefront of Post Tension floors and large commercial projects.
Also, in 2005 we took possession of a Copperhead Screed and Power Rake Laser screed which ensured we could offer our clients a range of finished products and services.
On top of this, we carry 12 Ride-on Floats in a range of sizes as well as an arsenal of walk behind floats, and in 2006 we brought on our own pump, and now, we proudly boast 3 Putzmeister pumps – 20m, 28m and 47m which enable us to have more control of the every day running of concrete placing.


Hard Landscaping and Decorative Concrete has always been a service BCP have offered, however it has only really taken off into its prime since Lance Tuhi was brought on board to run team team 7 years ago.
Lance has over 30 years of industry experience and there isn’t much he doesn’t know! Being involved in projects like;

  • New Brighton Mall Project
  • Landscaping for Canterbury University Campus
  • Construction of Christchurch’s first “Living Street” in St Albans
  • Major BCP Landscaping projects


Whilst BCP have always delivered a high standard and range of Decorative and Landscaping services, this department really excelled by becoming a preferred contractor with one of Christchurch’s leading insurance companies, assisting them with the Earthquake repair programme.
This was a successful partnership, which saw our client be the first Insurance company to have completed their “Out of Scope” claims in Canterbury.
In addition to our residential services, BCP also carry out larger Landscaping projects for Schools, Hospitals, Rugby Park facilities and many more!

The excavation  and Landscaping departments work hand in hand with one another, so no project is too big or small for our team.
Under the Landscaping umbrella, BCP also offer Asphalting services.
In a previous time, Lance managed an Asphalting Business for just under 10 years. His experience in this field enables him to run our Asphalt crew effectively and efficiently and by having our own dedicated Asphalting crew and truck.



Part of the unique package we can offer at BCP is a full build installation. This department factors in many different aspects so requires a lot of patience and understanding of the construction industry.
Paul O’Connor came to BCP 3 years ago off the back of a 32 year strong building industry career.
His expertise and knowledge of the industry is second to none! Some of his notable projects include;

  • Christchurch Women’s Hospital
  • Forsyth Barr Stadium
  • AMI Stadium
  • Christchurch Art Gallery


Paul is also a Licensed Building Practitioner in Carpentry. This means we can give our clients piece of mind that we are not only going to provide the highest level of quality finish, but that we will also stand by our workmanship.
BCP carry out the Full Floor installations in-house. We employ our own Carpenters, Steel Fixers, and Concrete Placers without needing to sub-contract the work out.
We even have the capability to have a floor design carried out by our consultant engineers if thats something our customers are interested in!
Paul brings a very hands on approach to delivering fast and effective methodologies for our clients, and with the support of his 3 Project Managers we continue to deliver the utmost highest quality of full floor installation services for our clients.


Health and Safety

Health and Safety has always been at the forefront of BCP’s processes and systems, however with the recent implementation of the Health & Safety at Work Act 2015 we wanted to ensure we continue to meet the requirements of our clients.
Mark Campbell is our dedicated Health & Safety Manager who oversees the safety systems for the entire company.
With comprehensive checks, plans and policies in place, we are confident we are are on the ball when it comes to ensuring the safety of not only our employees, but those who we come in direct contact with on site.
All BCP employees on site hold their Site Safe passports and we ensure we continue to train our senior staff in First Aid and Advanced Site Safety courses where possible.
We hold an 81% rating with Site Wise (Previously known as AppCon) and we encourage progressive training for Truck and Operator licenses where applicable.
We value our employees and strive to ensure we have the highest level of protocols in place to ensure they arrive home safely at the end of the working day.
