Founding Director of ISeekplant (online plant hire aggregator), Master of Construction Engineering & Management (Griffith University)
I worked with Golding Contractors as a Project Engineer and have spent many years around earthmoving, construction, mining and civil engineering projects. Managing iSeekplant has put me in touch with thousands of plant hire companies and project managers from tier 1 companies.
Civil Engineering, Earthmoving, Plant Hire, Infrastructure Investment, Government Policy (infrastructure), Mining, Construction (road/rail/commercial/residential).
I want to see plant hire shifted completely online, without removing the personal touch. Relationships are absolutely fundamental to the plant hire industry - we just need a little more technology.
My career in civil and mining construction projects started in my early early twenties with an engineering cadetship. This cadetship took me all over remote regions of Australia, from the Kimberlies to Tasmania, QLD, NT and NSW. I have been involved in the construction and management of BOO and BOOT contracts on mine sites managed by most of Australia's major mining companies. I gained my Masters in Engineering in 2006 and my career progressed to civil structures, road works and earthworks projects. These projects were predominantly Lump Sum, Schedule of Rates or Cost Reimbursable contracts.
I have had a diverse career in civil and mining. With experience from minor subdivision work to major mine site bulk earthworks and processing plant construction.
