Michael started in mechanical commissioning straight out of high school in the US and continued for over ten years before picking up a passion for carpentry and wood working. This brought him to his next ten years of general residential carpentry and a hobby of woodworking.
After relocating to Australia Michael picked right back up with mechanical commissioning, this time in the metric system.
With Michael’s 14 years of experience in commercial mechanical commissioning, the majority of this involved managing the commissioning process. Michael spent two of those years solely performing commissioning duties at Intel’s micro chip manufacturing clean room fabs. He has also performed commissioning duties on a wide range of building types, from industrial to hospitals, labs, schools, office buildings and more. During his most recent year of commissioning, he was able to utilise his background to thrive in the site manager role for mechanical construction on a new hospital as well as a new airport expansion.
This all leads to Michael being a well-rounded holistic commissioning manager. His understanding and experience with the construction, installation and commissioning trades offers him an overall perspective of each project he approaches.
