I am a multi-skilled and qualified construction project management professional with solid industry experience in concrete construction, subcontractor management and programme supervision – making for a versatile and valuable team leader. I am a creative problem solver, taking the initiative to find practical solutions to resolve challenges that arise during construction.
I have more than eleven years of experience, with my most recent role being the Construction Project Manager at C.J. Irons Construction Property Developers. In this period I have delivered new low-rise construction projects in excess of 22,500m² and nearly 15,000m² of new tenant installations. I have also been involved in the pre-construction of five luxury private residences and the township establishment and design development for a social housing project of more than 6,500 apartments. I want to secure a position where I can utilise my skills and experience while contributing to a challenging and rewarding technical environment.
I have developed strong asset management skills in my tenure with an owner/builder and have been the primary person responsible for the Walker Creek Office Park. In the ten years that the park has been occupied, there hasn't been a single tenant that has vacated - we've always been able secure lease extensions with the original tenants.
My résumé provides a very good overview of my experience and character. I am a passionate, accomplished, and well-rounded construction specialist with a positive work ethic.

Construction Project ManagerC.J. Irons Construction (Jan, 2014 - Jan, 2024)
I was retained and promoted after the completion of my studies and moved into a managerial role in the organization. I was tasked with supplying the management resources to the sites, ensuring that projects were completed on time and within budget. My career later evolved and required me to take up a tenant-facing role - which included acquisition, lease negotiations, fit-out installations and post-handover management of our clients.
Subordinate Construction SupervisorC.J. Irons Construction (Jan, 2012 - Dec, 2013)
I joined the firm in 2012 during the completion of my Honours degree, and was immediately required to take a hands-on approach to running the construction site. I was the right hand man to the Construction Foreman, ensuring that all daily concrete related work was executed to the engineering design. I was tasked with managing the labour force, as well as managing the on-site Health & Safety file and policies.
