MEET THE TEAM
At Blades, we’ve not only been around the block. We helped build it.
Every member of the Blades team has more than a decade of experience in the building and construction industry. Some have upwards of 25 years. This includes specialist experience in property development, urban and regional planning, construction management, project programming and architectural design. We understand all forms of development, including residential, retail, commercial and industrial through to education, civil and subdivisions.
“There are two things that make the Blades team different. We work to understand the outcomes our clients need and we then operate to ensure these are delivered seamlessly.
We believe in total transparency with our clients, be they private developers, institutions, corporate or government. This is why clients stay with us and refer us to their colleagues time and time again. We don’t just build projects, we build on relationships, in some cases for over 20 years.”
“Each member of our growing team has built up a career with a depth of expertise across a range of disciplines, including construction management, project management, architecture, design management and construction programming. We’ve recruited through our network, based on individual track record and reputation. It’s good to know our team are not just really good at what they do – they are really good people too.”
