What do you like most about the industry?
This industry always provides a challenge – positive challenge to push the boundaries of what is considered traditional play, and come up with solutions that re-invent traditional thought and tie in with modern design techniques.  This industry also deals with a varied array of clients from schools and childcare right up to Tier 1 construction companies.  Being able to work across this vast client base is a real challenge, and takes a very versatile team to excel.

What do you like most about PSC?
Working here at Playscape Creations, we strive to push the boundaries and are constantly looking at new ways to get our ideas to the market.  Everyone’s attitude is focused on a common goal and I love that – we’re all striving to uphold a high professional standard across all facets of the business.

What is your highlight at PSC so far?
The Construction of the Keppel Kraken water park on the Yeppoon Foreshore.  This was a great job to be an instrumental part of.  I was based in Yeppoon for the duration of the job and ran the hydraulic installation from start to finish.  This job had a great atmosphere of teamwork across all the contractors, and the end result speaks for itself.  An excellent design in the perfect location – and it’s extremely rewarding to see it so well utilised by the community and visitors.

What is your favourite recreational item we provide?
Too hard – have to choose two.  The Global Motion from Landscape Structures and the Verso Splash from Aquatix – both offering maximum fun to multiple users.

What is your motto in life?
Bite off more than you can chew – then chew like buggery!
