Our People

Powered by people

Every PACT project reflects the power of human interactions. Our Senior Managers don’t sit behind closed doors – every single member of our team is accessible and accountable. It’s this drive to be ‘hands-on’ that really energises a project, as conversations provide clarity, decisions are made quickly, and pooled wisdom delivers insights.

This kind of culture doesn’t happen by accident. We handpick talented individuals who are continually looking to advance both themselves and our entire industry. We see their potential and in return, they find the potential in every project they throw themselves into.

“Each member went out of their way to listen to and understand any consultant and client issues and was most cooperative and expedient in responding to and addressing them.”

Brian Smyth, Department of Finance Building Management And Works
