You could say John has water in his blood: when he’s not out on Sydney’s Cowan Creek restoring his boat, he’s assisting teams across Australia and New Zealand strengthen their wastewater projects.
His work covers both water and wastewater but his passion lies with wastewater treatment. From a design perspective, John moves deftly from strategic planning through to the nuts and bolts engineering of Wastewater Treatment Plants, including innovative processes such as membrane ultra-filtration and advanced sludge treatment systems.
Recently John has assisted the Sydney team to win detailed design work on the lower South Creek program with Sydney Water, a positioning exercise which began when he joined Stantec in 2015.
PhD qualified, John doesn’t conform to a preference for the technical and is happiest selling, networking and working on the strategy and tactics of a large pursuit. Which is why you’ll often find him moving between project development and delivery…when he’s not on his boat.
