Grant joined our building projects section as a fire protection engineer with responsibilities that include technical and strategic business development. Now a discipline leader and associate, Grant has been involved in the fire protection industry since starting as a fire system designer over forty years ago.

With experience including roles as a fire contractor, businesses owner, and fire consultant, Grant incorporates the benefits of the latest fire protection systems technology while considering cost and serviceability within the constraints of codes and standards. Grant is the fire protection design lead for the Atlassian Headquarters adjacent to Sydney’s central station. A notable feature for Grant was the incorporation of a combined hydrant sprinkler system that takes advantage of the latest design trends.

A self-taught home renovator outside of work, Grant also loves sailing keelboats in the Sydney Harbour.
