After gaining a BSc in Quantity Surveying from Curtin University of Technology, Vanessa graduated as a quantity surveyor in Perth, Western Australia in 1991 and went on to work for a number of small- and medium-sized contractors as a tender estimator and project quantity surveyor.
She moved to the UK in 1995 and travelled extensively around Europe before settling in London to continue her career and working as a contractor’s project surveyor. Following a career break and bringing up two sons, she returned to work with Adair and a new role in business development.
Vanessa’s main activities focus on preparing fee bids and proposals, organising client events, creating promotional materials and arranging business networking. She is also responsible for Adair’s professional compliance responsibilities.
Outside of work, Vanessa enjoys spending time with her family and friends.
