David has worked on a wide range of projects across all sectors including the design, specification and project management of commercial, health, Defense, aged care, residential, rail and infrastructure projects.
When David started the Hydraulic and Fire Protection section for the Sydney office in 2004, he was charged with the role of building a credible and respected Hydraulic division.
