Hydraulic Section Manager, Principal

Quentin began his career supervising the prefabrication of gold ore processing plants for export to West Africa.

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.

At the beginning of 1999 he joined Wood & Grieve Engineers and was the Mechanical Services Section Manager for 10 years. In 2010 he moved to the Hydraulic Services Division and is currently the Perth Hydraulic Section Manager.

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.
