This was followed by a period in the North West of Western Australia as Site Engineer overseeing the construction of a mine de-watering system.
In 1994 Quentin joined a mechanical contractor as Project Engineer. His project management experience includes projects for a diverse range of clients in the areas of tertiary education, communications, defence, retail, local government, heavy engineering and the commercial sector.

What will you bring to a project
I bring an extensive knowledge of a broad range of projects from education to defence. Having a combined hydraulic/mechanical background gives me a unique perspective on the design issues that affect both services.
My experience as a NABERS assessor gives me an understanding of the aspirational targets of the sustainable initiatives being developed for a project.
In addition, a personal interest in building services due diligence brings a focus on buildability, ease of maintenance and durability.
Overall, I have the depth of experience to talk to clients about the high level issues that often need to be resolved in the early days of schematic design.
