It has been a month of outstanding achievement here at CGC, strong performance’s all round; however, If you were to ask me to name three geniuses, I probably wouldn’t say Einstein, Newton, you know. I’d go Todd, Ryde, Hope…. Kundi; as theirs have been inspiring performances so far this month.

Today you will be taken on a MEP industry pilgrimage by our very own David Thompson as he releases the valve on his knowledge tank and updates us on the current market.

You will then be presented the opportunity to peek round the social curtain into the CGC community by Carmel Jones as she takes you back over the month past and introduces you to our newest staff member, Christina Ryan.

Building Services update with David Thompson

The last time I was asked to contribute to the industry update was March 2016 a little over a year ago. Time flies, but not a lot has changed, there are more cranes in the sky and civil construction continues to grow. Landmark projects like the three towers at Barangaroo have come to a close, but the landscape continues to change with projects like The Ribbon at Darling Harbour; 1 Alfred Street Residential Development; 60 Martin Place; The Greenland Residential Tower; 100 Mount Street and York and George (the list could go on and on) in construction phase.

The list of civil infrastructure projects continues to grow and thrive, as outlined by Dan Kundi and Nick Curtis in February and April’s newsletters.
So what does this mean for the NSW and Australian work force? Put simply, there is a demand for experienced candidates across all areas.

From a Building Services consultancy perspective, our clients are looking for senior engineers who can lead projects and have strong client facing capability (across all engineering disciplines). The shortage in skilled Revit MEP designers continues with some of the large infrastructure projects soaking up a lot of the talent pool.

There is an invasion on the horizon from some of the large interstate mechanical contractors who are looking to take advantage of the buoyant Sydney market. The demand continues for experienced project managers who have delivered multimillion dollar projects for tier one builders, particularly in the healthcare, retail and commercial sectors.

If you are interested in hearing about specific positions we have available please contact David Thompson on 0400 516 014, Hollie Burt on 0456 945 633 or James Loomes on 0431 946 382.

CGC Social

This month we celebrated Carmel Jones, Will Gardner and Nick Curtis’s birthdays and welcomed a newbie into the office. Christina Ryan has joined the CGC team working alongside our already strong design consultants and will be focusing on Architecture. Please check out her linkedin profile

We also celebrated Billy Versey’s 4 year and Carmel’s 1 year anniversary with CGC!

Special mention needs to be made to Rory Todd who has been with us only two years but has taken the rail infrastructure market by storm, resulting in CGC becoming one of the third largest suppliers in NSW under the Governments 0007 panel! Just a few weeks ago he was promoted to Principal consultant and enjoyed a long lunch with Billy and Nick at Chop House to celebrate.

The Construction and Engineering team recently enjoyed a “beer and burger” at our new local, Bar Luca, to celebrate Matthew’s victory in the internal comp that was recently run. Matt destroyed the competition, surpassing most of us within two days of the competition starting!

We would also like to wish Rory and Trev good luck for the Sydney Half Marathon taking place this weekend. Both have been training hard and I am sure will smash it.

Aside from that the CGC social scene has been bunkering down for winter focusing on the training for the 50km Oxfam walk. There’s still time to sponsor the lads.. and thanks for your support!
