Luke entered the construction industry in 1998 as an apprentice carpenter. Whilst working full time, Luke studied part-time over a six-year period to complete a Diploma in Building and construction.
Luke’s solid practical and theoretical knowledge gained him a position in a commercial construction site management-training program. During this time Luke was taught all aspects of managing a commercial construction site including safety, quality control and time management. Luke has managed and has been involved in a diverse range of projects valued up to $10 million, including hospitals, international airports upgrades and heritage restorations in both Australia and the UK.
Luke has a keen thirst for knowledge and self-improvement, whether it be learning a second language or furthering his construction based knowledge Luke is always searching for his next challenge.
Kurt graduated RMIT University with a Bachelor of Civil Engineering and immediately entered the world of project management. Since 2005 Kurt’s career has predominantly focused on the management and restoration of Heritage listed assets on behalf of Government agencies, both in the role of clients representative and head contractor. With a “white card”, scaffold ticket, rail awareness certification and practical training undertaken in Australia and the UK in the conservation of traditional buildings, Kurt is as comfortable on site as in an office.
Kurt has a keen research interest in traditional building techniques and materials, sustainable construction, modular construction and could easily spend his spare days giving life back to reclaimed timber or continuing personal residential refurbishment and development projects.
Our flexible roaming ground force includes skilled carpenters, stone masons, pointers, painters and plasterers. Key personnel include: Tom Gleeson, Tashi Sherpa, Daniel Saunders, Drew Garcia, Fabian Toonen & Toby Passalaqua
