She is a regularly sought-after specialist commercial resource, who can bring her technical knowledge and experience to any stage of a project in the planning and construction delivery process.

We look forward to a successful journey ahead with you Carin! Welcome aboard!
A little more about Carin
Where I’m from
Originally from the Highlands of Scotland, I have been so lucky to have lived around the world thanks to my fathers work in the oil industry. Under my own steam, have lived in London and Sydney arriving in Melbourne in 2000. Melbourne is a wonderful city to live, with a wide diversity of activities, cultural experiences, and great events & venues. So many great opportunities, for work, and play!
Outside interests & hobbies
At the moment, I seem to be spending about 120% of my time wrangling a bush block in the outer eastern suburbs, enjoying plenty of native wildlife. The other 50% of my free time is spent on the water at Port Phillip Bay sailing.
Sport & Sporting events
I am a keen sailor, and try and fit 2 races in a week. My crew and I are currently training to participate in the AWKR (Australian Women’s Keelboat Regatta) which will be held in June 22, hosted by the club I belong to, so we are very excited about that.
What inspired you to become a Construction Professional?
Construction is such a diverse career, with opportunities in all disciplines. I graduated from a Biotech Science subject, but with a desire to actually see the results of my work. After a number of roles in supporting industries, I beat a path into construction, where I have found a niche that suits my enquiring mind, and need for detail.
What do you love about the industry & the work you do?
Contracts and commercial work require attention to detail, and the desire to get to the bottom of puzzles like “2+2=5”. Why? I love a mystery.
It’s also a great team environment (similar to sailing) you know your contribution keeps the project powering along, and there is always a diverse bunch to get to know, and share experiences and knowledge with. Handing over finished project to a happy client has to be the best part, and then we do it all over again.
