Owen joined Gandy and Roberts in 2007 as a design engineer after working in local government and hydraulic modelling. Branching into structures, he quickly developed the skills and enthusiasm to produce efficient and practical designs. Leading a team of structural, civil & hydraulic engineers, designers and technical officers on a wide variety of challenging projects is his forte. Complementing the design role, Owen has a wealth of construction supervision experience.
Becoming a director of Gandy and Roberts in 2016, Owen continues his particular interest in pre-stressed concrete structures. Owen has been the lead designer on award winning residential projects, office, health & aged care, education and multi-residential projects.
Working extensively in retail developments in recent years, his expertise also extends to forensic investigation, reporting, and remedial works to existing structures. Owen derives satisfaction from working with clients, architects, designers and contractors to help deliver successful projects both large and small.
Recently, Owen has had an influential role on the design and implementation of the Icon Development for Kalis Properties ($100M budget), the Cat and Fiddle Retail Centre Redevelopment ($20M budget), Avalon City Retreat and the Launceston Integrated Care Centre.
