Antonio started his career as a Plumber, Drainer & Gasfitter in 1999. He began Hydraulic Consulting in 2006 and commenced with Wood & Grieve Engineers in February 2008 in the new Hydraulic & Fire Services section. Antonio then became a shareholder in 2011. He has been instrumental in developing the Hydraulic section including training staff, maintaining and developing client relationships and quality systems used within the Hydraulic section. His technical knowledge of Hydraulic and Fire services combined with industry experience allows Antonio to provide a unique perspective to the design for constructability and the coordination between services.
In July 2014 Antonio was made a Principal shareholder in the firm by the Board of Directors which allows his further input and involvement into the strategic growth and direction of Wood & Grieve Engineers.
Outside of work
Outside of work Antonio loves spending time with wife Lucia and young son Alessandro. He can be seen heading off with a few of the guys for runs at lunch time, before and after work to maintain the balance. Those who know Antonio know that apart from his family that his first love is gardening and his vegetables, he has been known to grow some mega sized tomatoes weighing in nearly 1000g.
