Theresa watson

Theresa graduated with a Masters in Architecture (2009), and accepted a position at Hatch Associates Ltd; a multidisciplinary engineering consultancy. During her time at Hatch, Theresa provided EPCM services for resource development projects including transient accommodation villages. Through working in the resource sector, she developed an appreciation for construction project management, co-ordination within contract documentation and team relationships. This experience quickly gave her the required understanding of the industry to register as an Architect in 2013. Most recently, Theresa transferred her knowledge into the development of local retirement villages in Perth. She is currently working as a client-side Project Manager for St Ives Retirement Living, overseeing the construction of a $40 million retirement village. Later this year, Theresa will be working on a number of potential and live developments.
