Damian is a seasoned Project Manager and Registered Builder, with 29 years' experience in the Construction industry. He's managed commercial projects ranging from hospitals, shopping centres, schools, civic centres, luxury homes and retirement facilities - many of these projects have won local and state industry awards.

Damian has a rare combination of skills. Having started as an apprentice carpenter to become the director of his own building company and now a professional and experienced Client-side Project Manager, he brings a business owner's mentality to his work and projects- with a first-hand understanding of how projects work on site.

He takes pride in leading a team that delivers quality projects on time and within budget.

Notable Project Experience

Over the past 30 years I’ve worked on numerous projects, with the most notable being:


  • Bangadang Farm New Homestead - $40.0m

      Client-side project & facility Management.


  • Roy Hill Remote Operations Centre - $64.0m

      The remote Operations Centre is located in the Perth Airport complex, and was     

      designed and constructed to remotely operate the fully autonomous trucks and semi-

      autonomous trains and loading facility. It was the most technologically advanced

      building in Australia at the time.


  • Busselton Civic and Administration Centre - $24.0m


  • Pinjarra Shopping Centre Expansion - $25.0m


  • Menora Gardens Retirement Village - $24.0m

  • Bunbury Regional Hospital Redevelopment - $18.0m

  • St John of God Hospital Redevelopment - $15.0m                                                               Both hospitals had a high level of specialist services and equipment requirements. The project included construction of 2 new operating theatres, expansion of recovery ward, new ICU rooms, birthing suites and palliative care unit.



Damian’s extensive knowledge of building trades, methods and practices, his great familiarity with documentation from all disciplines, and his wonderful attention to detail, has resulted in a building of rare quality in Western Australia. This final and very pleasing result was achieved in no small way through Damian’s diligence, patience and persistence, and greatly aided by his calm nature, highly effective interpersonal skills and detailed record keeping.
Damian is a first class building professional with excellent knowledge, a great temperament and an ability to get on with people across a very wide spectrum. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for any significant role in the building industry.
