We are delighted to announce APP's success at The National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) WA Awards for Excellence on Thursday 17 November, 2016.

Congratulations to Jill Fraser from our WA office who was announced as the winner of the NAWIC (WA) Crystal Vision Award. The award recognises and celebrates an exceptional woman who has not only forged her own career, but has also encouraged the development of other women within the construction industry.

With qualifications in civil engineering and construction management, Project Director Jill joined APP in 2010 with experience spanning the residential, industrial, commercial, aviation and infrastructure sectors.

Jill is also a member of the Property Council of Australia’s Women and Diversity Committee where she is actively involved in championing networking, learning and mentoring opportunities and promoting the positive influences women have on the sector. In 2014, she won the WA Property Council’s Future Directions Award and was also selected as a mentee the following year.

Jill won the Crystal Vision Award for her ongoing and significant commitment to advancing and furthering the interests of women in the construction industry and for her contribution to the industry as a whole.

We’d also like to congratulate Michelle Wunderlich, Vanessa Growden and Claire Lynch from our WA office. Both Michelle and Vanessa were shortlisted for the NAWIC WA Outstanding Contribution to Construction Award, and Claire was nominated in the Young Achiever Award category.

After spending more than six years on the extensive redesign of Sydney airport as a project leader in Architecture, Michelle joined APP in 2014 as a Project Manager with high expertise in the aviation field. Since joining APP she has continued building on her experience, participating in the Perth Terminal 1, Domestic Pier and International Departures Expansion Project and being selected into the airport’s internal project management team to continue on this large and complex project.

Vanessa has been a Project Manager with APP since 2010, bringing with her eight years of technical design experience gained during her time practicing as an architect. Vanessa specialises in aviation, with her latest major projects including the new Terminal 1, Domestic Pier and International Departures Expansion Project, Terminal WA (T2) new build and Terminal 3 Perth Airport Redevelopment.

Claire joined APP through our graduate program in 2014, on completion of a double degree in interior architecture and business management. In her role as Project Manager, Claire focuses on the commercial and retail sectors and her technical background enables her to add particular value during the master-planning and design stages of her projects.

Well done Jill, Michelle, Vanessa and Claire!
