Michael joined our Brisbane office as an Electrical Engineer in June 2008. Michael gained valuable engineering and leadership experience through long term relocations to our Perth and Melbourne offices during 2011-2013. Through these relocations Michael was exposed to a wide range of projects, adapted to apply differing state specific engineering standards and gained valuable mentoring from the best senior engineers at WGE. Returning to our Brisbane office as an Electrical Project Engineer in late 2013, Michael has taken on a senior leadership role within the office and is thriving on the opportunity of playing a key role in developing our Brisbane office.

What will you bring to a project

The three key areas  I will bring to your project are multi-discipline engineering co-ordination, timely/professional delivery and providing practical solutions to meet the Client’s needs. I have extensive project coordination experience for WGE, taking the burden of liaising and organising multiple personnel away from the Principal Consultant and resulting in a more seamless project delivery.
