Our Experience

Luke has 22 years’ experience in estimating and tendering in Australia working in several different states and 2 years in the UK. This knowledge has given him a varied range of skills which covered all sectors in the construction industry including commercial offices, senior living, housing, education, multi-level apartments, institutional, health, Defence and small to large retail centres.
Working for both Tier 1 and Tier 2 companies Luke understands the various necessities at each level of construction which give a greater understanding for the requirements of each project. In this time he has been responsible through either tendering or cost management modelling for collaborative delivery for securing projects. This experience allied with his professional development provides Luke with an excellent appreciation of building techniques and methodologies allowing him to critique documentation to achieve the best result.
Luke has a keen interest in being conversant with the latest Estimating software and techniques to be able to efficiently complete work in the most accurate and time effective manner possible. This is particularly important as the market moves to a more collaborative delivery style where the estimators are more involved in the scoping and vetting of trade packages within projects where it is possible to track the measured quantities from the initial stages of concept design through design development, construction documentation and to what is then constructed on site.
