Projex is delighted to welcome a new director to its London office.
Paul O’Callaghan joins following twelve years in Australia where he was formerly project director with Coffey International (Tetra Tech) and Turner Townsend-Thinc.
An experienced team leader, he has worked across the multiple disciplines of project and programme management in construction of large built-form infrastructure including sea ports and airports, as well as electrical transmission and distribution assets. These include project director for the £200m Cairns Airport Terminal delivery as well as the extremely technical Groundwater Cooling project for CSIRO which cools Australia’s Pawsey supercomputer.
This is the first time a groundwater cooling system has been used on this scale in metropolitan Australia. The power required to run the groundwater cooling pumps is offset by an array of solar panels on the roof of the Pawsey Centre, making it one of the most sustainable supercomputers on the planet.
Paul is already getting to grips working with London office head, David Willson, on southern-based projects such as The Gantry and Adagio Hotels development and says:
“Projex is an entrepreneurial and ambitious consultancy and it is a great time to join.
“The existing portfolio is diverse and interesting and I am keen to use my knowledge of aviation, transmission, data and sustainable project delivery developed in Australia, as well as having input into developing a successful team in London and the South.”
