Outside of work
Outside work Grant loves spending time with Kate and his two sons Lachie and Darcy. He’s still playing football after playing and coaching at WAFL/VFL level and he enjoys getting out in the bush, camping, sailing and fishing. Being a part owner of a couple of horses also provides a bit of excitement outside of work from time to time!

Hazeldene’s Hatchery Facility
A state of the art chicken hatchery facility in Bendigo Victoria. The facility has extremely tight temperature, pressure, humidity and fresh air controls to maximize hatch yield. Innovative thermal storage systems are installed to provide multiple redundancies to the facility.
I would like to express appreciation to the Wood & Grieve team leaders Grant Holman and Ben van Niekerk who together led the building services design development process. Wood & Grieve’s proactive and responsive approach has been refreshing given the limitation of building services design expertise in Tasmania.
Patrick Stanton, Stanton Management Group
In particular I would like to express appreciation to Grant Holman (who led the Wood & Grieve team) and Daniel Hanlon for their pro-active and willing assistance during the construction phase. Grant and Daniel were always readily available to assist in the responses to site queries and the resolution of any matters that arose.
