SPONSOR: Josephine Sukkar AM, Principal -Buildcorp Group Pty Ltd
I joined the construction industry in 2006 as a Design Coordinator with a major UK construction firm. My passion for construction led me to complete a construction qualification in 2009. This was followed by a promotion to Design Manager on the Bristol Schools PFI project. I held sole responsibility for design management across two schools within the PFI scheme, as well as client liaison and planning permission across an additional 10 schools. I relocated to Sydney and in 2014 joined Brookfield Multiplex as Assistant Design Manager on the Byron Central Hospital project. On this project I learnt new skills managing the BIM coordination process. I was then Assistant Design Manager on the St George Hospital project for NSW Health Infrastructure during the ECI Phase and construction of the refurbishment works. I moved to Buildcorp in August 2016 and am currently the Design Manager for the Pittwater Private Hospital project.
