What is your greatest professional achievement?

Project Management & delivery from conception to completion of the $25M Townsville Recreational Boating Park. The project redeveloped old contaminated Port & Industrial yards into the biggest recreational boating facility in the southern hemisphere. The multi-discipline project included more than a dozen Cardno Business Units coming together with various sub-consultants in order to rejuvenate a brownfield space and deliver a state of the art piece of community infrastructure.

How is it making a difference?

The project was entirely community focussed and substantially enhanced both environment and surrounds by way of site decontamination, enhanced aesthetics, useable community space and significant amelioration of flood impacts to the local community.

What is your Service Line and why are you passionate about it?

Land Development / Masterplanning – at its core Land Development is about providing sustainable outcomes for future generations.

Why Cardno?

Cardno has afforded me opportunities to work on diverse projects across multiple sectors with great people and mentors. What Cardno stands for and its inherent ambition in what it could be is really exciting.
