With a reputation for effectively managing the myriad activities that go into the development and construction of large-scale infrastructure projects, I bring a unique blend of best practice program management expertise and engineering and construction principles to any project I am involved in, while maintaining a holistic program management approach. A staunch proponent of leading safety practices, my commitment to safety throughout programs of works, on any project and on site is unwavering. I have had the opportunity to be involved in, and evolve through, some of the most exciting programs of works to ever be undertaken in New South Wales.
I have developed expertise in all phases of the program and project management cycle from costing and tendering to planning and design, budgeting and site management, estimating and surveying, client management as well as commissioning. Driving thorough and rigorous quality, risk assessment and compliance activities all the way, I am able to achieve consistently high quality outputs that remain compliant and maintain the highest standards of safety. I am renowned for maintaining a line of sight across a program and leveraging my technical nous to foresee and mitigate risks to any delivery. I rapidly establish best practice tracking management and financial controls, attaining service delivery excellence through my hands-on management of all programs. As a result of my meticulous attention to detail, skilled planning and pinpoint execution, I was given accountability for managing major programs of works embedding a cohesive approach within each unique project. I routinely work within multi-million dollar projects and am skilled at engaging clients, staff, subcontractors, stakeholders and community leaders. I can capably navigate through contentious situations with ease and have a firm understanding of environmental and heritage risks as well as culturally significant areas.
