Year joined DMA: 2006
As the Managing Director of DMA and a building services engineer, I’m used to working ‘behind the scenes’ to create inner beauty on projects – the building services that are usually never seen.
As the Managing Director of DMA and a building services engineer, I’m used to working ‘behind the scenes’ to create inner beauty on projects – the building services that are usually never seen. Whether it’s a remote hospital, a state-of-the-art aged care facility, or creating consistency in the major retail chains, after working for nearly 30 years on projects across Australasia, I’ve found our clients’ needs are often the same:
I manage teams delivering these outcomes for public and private clients and helping solve problems on large and small-scale projects. Working as Project Lead on challenging refurbishment and upgrade projects, my ‘been there, done that’ way of working is a strength I bring to my clients. But I appreciate that every project brings its own set of challenges, and when surprises do pop up my clients say I’m even keeled and unflappable.
As the Managing Director of DMA, I love that we are agile and flexible to suit our client’s needs.
As building engineers, it’s important we focus on creating inner beauty because what we design has such an effect on the mood, feeling and wellbeing of so many people for significant parts of their lives. Inner Beauty is created when capital and operational funds are applied judiciously, engineered systems run like clockwork, are rarely felt, heard or sensed, and occupants are engaged yet relaxed within the physical world in which we are inextricably linked to its creation.
