Joining WGE as a graduate in 1997, Brett has played a significant role in the growth and advancement of the company from around 70 employees in WA, to over 600 people across 6 offices in Australia in 2019. A natural leader who is detail-driven in his approach and management style, Brett rapidly advanced within WGE, leading first the mechanical team before crossing disciplines into the Hydraulic section, eventually managing the entire Perth Building Services Group by 2010.
Known for his approachability and his open and honest character, Brett was appointed a Board Director in 2006 and accepted the position of Perth Office Manager in 2013. He is zealous about WGE’s unique culture, consciously delivering on expectations and leading the drive towards exceptional service by example, contributing to the firm being recognised a record eight times as an Aon ‘Best Employer’.
Brett is well-known and highly-respected within the greater building community of Perth; Engineers Australia invited him to become a Fellow of their institution in 2018. He is also a Non-Exec Director and current member of Consult Australia’s board, responsible for strategy-setting and ensuring the ongoing viability of the body, which advocates on behalf of the consultancy industry in Australia.
I’m proud of the contribution WGE has made within Perth, WA and in Australia. It’s incredibly rewarding to see the impact our major projects are having in the communities around us and to know I have been a part of that.
Brett is involved in his local football club in an assistant coaching role after having played football for many years. He has a passion for harness racing and owns horses that he races with friends. Brett has two children and spends time on his weekends supporting his childrens’ sporting endeavours.

In particular I would like to express appreciation to Brett Davis, who led the Wood & Grieve team. Brett was ably supported by Ralf Boepple. Together Brett and Ralf formed a great team who were across all aspects of the Mechanical and Hydraulic Services and were always readily available to assist in the responses to site queries and the resolution of any site issues arising. The quality of the Mechanical and Hydraulic Services documentation enabled the construction phase to run smoothly for these disciplines.Jennifer Holt, Australand
Both Brett Davis and Mark Carroll conducted their respective engineering disciplines in a very professional manner and had a clear focus on our needs as a client ensuring a very high level of service. Moreover, the quality of the mechanical and electrical services design and documentation was of the highest standard which clearly added value to our project.Lance Chu, SC Land
I would like to acknowledge the efforts of Brett Davis who led the mechanical team for the project. Brett offered a high level of professional service throughout the duration of the project.
The quality documentation produced by Wood & Grieve Engineers for the mechanical services ensured that the services were well coordinated and that on-site services issues relating to the mechanical services were kept to a minimum.Con Lampropoulos, Peter Hunt Architects
