David has evolved WT beyond the traditional role of a quantity surveyor, expanding our capacity as a client advisor across the full project lifecycle.
David joined WT Melbourne in 1988 and progressed through the ranks to become a Director in 1999. He joined the Australian Board in 2015.
David has a broad range of Quantity Surveying and Cost Management skills, having successfully cost managed a range of development and construction projects.
