Rork Projects is thrilled to welcome industry expert Bridget Taylor to the team, as she steps into the role of Construction Manager for Rork Projects Queensland.
Bridget joins General Manager Steve Raymond and Pre-Construction Manager Joel Molinari to round out a dynamic and diverse new leadership team for Rork Queensland.
Bridget’s project experience portfolio includes the likes of QPAC’s $150 million Performing Arts Venue, the State Government’s $291 million Millennium Arts Project along with the $27 million Santos Office Fitout to name a few.
With a career spanning almost 30 years with Lendlease, Bridget’s career in construction kicked off straight out of high school when a university tour inspired her to apply to study engineering.
She didn’t know then that this decision would lead to a rewarding career in the construction industry, with her achievements formally recognised when she received the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) Crystal Vision award for the Advancement of Women in the Industry.
When asked what motivated her to look for her new challenge, Bridget said she was starting to get uncomfortable with feeling comfortable.
“After so long at one organisation I felt like that time had come for me try something fresh and different,” Bridget said.
“Rork Projects is a company with a great reputation that is on the cusp of really exploding. I’ve seen them grow over the last 18 months, expanding into multi-million-dollar refurbishments, residential and new builds.
“For me it was the perfect time to come on board to be part of that growth story and I think the right formula really does start with our team.
“I’m really passionate about working with our team to marry up the person with the project; supporting them to feel confident in their delivery whilst also challenging them to extend their skillset and progress their careers.
“It’s encouraging to see how much progress has been made in our industry since I started my career in construction with so many opportunities for budding CAs, PMs and Site Managers.
“Diversity of any kind generates creative and different ideas about how to work, and that is always going to be a positive thing.”
