Sharni has been with Wood & Grieve Engineers since 2004, initially as an Electrical & Street Light Designer and in 2010 worked her way up to Project Engineer. She has been involved in design documentation & contract administration of various underground power and street lighting projects, including three state underground conversion projects for Western Power. Sharni has also been involved with two large redevelopment authorities in Western Australia for the redevelopment and regeneration of old industrial areas to new prime residential developments.
Sharni has kept herself updated with specific roadway lighting courses and has developed a great working relationship with Western Power, she is proficient in all of Western Power/Horizon Power policies and standards and is an active member of Western Power’s many working groups. Sharni was a member of the panel who took on the task of reviewing the rewritten Western Power UDS manual. The review was conducted by key stakeholders and areas of concern were tabled and resolved by members of the panel.
Sharni is an active member of the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA) Infrastructure Committee and was appointed an Associate of Wood & Grieve Engineers in 2012.
Outside of work
Sharni has an extremely creative mind. Her most rewarding past-times are home decorating and she is renowned for her birthday cake creations. She also enjoys spending quality time with her son and would do almost anything to get front row at a rock concert.
What will you bring to a project
I am very passionate about land affordability and in particular the authority policies and standards that affect land development and infrastructure projects throughout Australia.
I am an active member of the UDIA Infrastructure Committee which I have sat on for the past two terms and am extremely proud of our contribution and achievements to date in relation to land development projects.
I will bring my extensive knowledge, experience, enthusiasm and dedication to the table and treat your project like it is my own.

Sharni is consulted by Horizon Power for power matters in Karratha and the region!! The officers have realised that she knows almost more than them!!
We don’t recommend very many firms and people, but these two are top class. I’ve worked with them on projects for at least 15 years and they are our preferred electrical consultant!
