Geocon People: Project Engineer Adam Evans
08 March 2018
When did you join Geocon?
Two years ago, in 2016.
What was your role and what does it involve?
I joined the company as a Cadet Project Engineer.
Is your role the same today?
I have progressed to Project Engineer, which has more responsibility. I coordinate drawings, create and manage cashflow forecasts, ensure compliance for things like safety regulation and building codes. I am also involved in procurement of subcontractors, creating scopes of works, contract documents and assessing claims, right through to closing out the contract through deed of release.
What are some of the things you most like about working for Geocon:
I like that I can work closely with experienced Project Managers who give you information to complete a task, and trust you to look after it and make your own decisions. A great part of working for Geocon is that your career progression is dictated by yourself. If you’re willing to learn and work hard, the rewards will follow. I like the diversity of a company that allows you to work on many different projects, whether it be a multi-storey apartment complex or a high-end residential home.
The best thing you’ve learned in your role here?
Creating relationships with subcontractors!
What are your career aspirations?
To deliver my own project in the near future and become an established Project Manager.
What do you like to do outside work?
I head back home to the family farm which is in Crookwell, NSW to relax. The population of Crookwell is 3500 and about an hour north of Canberra. The area is well-known for producing quality seed potatoes, and fine marino wool, and it has the first grid-connected wind farm in Australia!
Would you recommend Geocon to others looking for a good career path?
I definitely would recommend Geocon to anyone who is driven and keen to progress in their career.
