David Collins has relocated from Cundall’s Sydney office to lead their Singapore’s ESD team as part of practice’s strategy to further grow their Singapore office.
David joined the Sydney practice as a graduate and progressed through the ranks to become an Associate leading the Sydney ESD team. During this time he has led the Sydney team to deliver headline sustainable projects both in Sydney and across Australia, including Insurance Australia Limited’s office fit-outs, Wollongong Centre – West Keira shopping centre extension and the multi-award winning 1 Bligh Street, Sydney.
In David’s new role, he will be charged with leading and expanding the Sustainability team in Singapore, building on the existing work already secured.
“David will play an integral role in Cundall’s strategy to continue our South East Asia growth” explains Marcus Eckersley, Director of Cundall Singapore “His involvement in a number of innovative sustainable projects in Australia will bring our capabilities here in Singapore to the forefront”
The multi-disciplinary consultancy officially opened their Singapore office in 2012, following the successful delivery of a local project. Since then Cundall has moved to a larger office to accommodate their growing team who have been working on commercial, data centre, hotel and industrial developments. In this time, they have delivered a number of sustainable projects including the LEED Gold rated shopping mall T Galleria By DFS.
David’s key experience lies with providing energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions to all building types. His passion for maximising passive design and energy efficiency has led to additional experience in water reduction strategies, on-site energy generation, resource efficiency and holistic design approaches.
Through involvement in the complete ESD process, from initial advice and computer simulation through to final project delivery, performance monitoring and upgrade plans David is able to provide both clean and clear environmental results in line with the client’s goals.
“I am looking forward to applying my experience and expertise to a new market” explains David “It is an exciting time for the Singapore office which is growing rapidly, I am keen to be part of this dynamic team”
