From highly structured processes such as Government projects to agile processes, such as design and construct engagements, I am able to impart a philosophy onto the project team that assists in achieving clients’ varied requirements.

My professional background

Throughout my 20 years of continual experience in the building services and construction industry, I have endeavoured to deliver services and designs that achieve the clients’ vision of value for money and high-quality outcomes. My experience allows me to consider the holistic aspects of projects in delivering the best results.

Today I manage flexible and multi-skilled teams that can deliver large and small projects, recognising that every project is unique and requires its own approach. From highly structured processes such as Government projects to agile processes, such as design and construct engagements, I am able to impart a philosophy onto the project team that assists in achieving clients’ varied requirements.

As the leader for Mechanical Services of DMA, I love that we are agile and flexible to suit our client’s needs.

In building engineering there is inner beauty in delivering a facility that people feel comfortable through its environmental conditions and engaged through its integral technology.
