Andrew Watters – Director

Beginning his trade background in the engineering industry as a structural and bridge draftsman, Andrew has worked with many large companies on major infrastructure projects across the country and overseas.

Andrew has since helped numerous trade companies in the areas of business development, project management, tendering, OHS compliance, QA compliance and estimating.
