Gavin believes alignment between corporate and personal values is really important. With 30 years of experience, he approaches projects holistically rather than within the framework of a particular discipline and often finds ‘another way’ to solve a problem.
This ties in with ADP’s vision to ‘inspire a better world through influence and design’ and free-thinking engineering – the focus is on defining what the great environment is for the building, before considering traditional MEP solutions. This, combined with cross-disciplinary technical knowledge, is the birthplace of creativity and innovation.
As Director responsible for the Sydney office, Gavin enjoys the opportunity to build a committed and talented group of engineers – our ‘great people’. This involves mentoring them to focus on the relationships with their internal and external teams, and on delivering excellence in engineering. The scale of our office enables both informal and formal review and critique, making sure the more junior engineers have the benefit of senior staff experience.
