Summary

I am a long experienced and self-motivated consultant with 30 years experience in providing topical advice and assistance to government, public and privately owned and operated entities in relation to the appropriate engagement and delivery mechanisms for the successful planning, construction, operation and maintenance of roadways, tollways, busways, airports, drainage and stormwater systems, sewerage and wastewater systems and pipelines for the carriage of other fluids and gases.

My project and organisational experience spans Australia, East and South Africa, South Asia, South East Asia and includes work in Argentina, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, South Africa, Tanzania and Thailand, using Australian Standard, FIDIC and bespoke relationship and hard dollar contracting mechanisms.

My background in civil engineering and road and airport infrastructure works has allowed me to specialise in providing general and specific advice to entities for the purposes of assisting clients with navigating simple, complex and complicated contractual and organisational issues. I am a nationally accredited Mediator in Australia and Papua New Guinea and a Registered Adjudicator for construction contract disputes.
