ptc. expands Civil Engineering capabilities with the appointment of Stephen Naughton – Project Director
9 OCTOBER 2020: In ptc.’s 20th year of parking and traffic advisory work, 2020 marks its further expansion in scope and impact with the launch of a civil engineering practice.
Why civil engineering and why now?
While 2020 might be one of the most challenging years on record, we’ve remained focused on opportunities to grow our business. Which is why right now we’re expanding our services to include civil engineering.
We’re proud to say that we’ve been providing parking and traffic advice for some of Australia’s biggest organisations. To a great extent, our success can be attributed to good old fashioned hard work and striking when the time is right.
The right person:
Finding the right people is everything. So, when Stephen Naughton came along with the right experience, influence and passion for developing the next generation of engineers – we knew the timing was right. Stephen is a highly respected Chartered Engineer who has more than 15 years’ experience in the management and design of civil engineering developments in a wide range of sectors including Aged Care, Healthcare, Education, Correction Facilities, Leisure Centres, Defence, Residential, Commercial and Subdivisions.
The right opportunities:
We also noticed a change in opportunities. Our clients are seeking more integrated solutions and we’ve seen increased demand not only for parking planning and traffic engineering but also how this translates into the construction process. Under Stephen’s leadership, our team of engineers will provide strategic and technical civil advice to assist clients during the entire life cycle of the development, from preliminary assessments for master planning stage through to detailed design, construction and certification.
The right culture:
Lastly, we know that our people and their experience are our most important assets. Therefore, finding a leader who cares about the careers of others and who wants to grow our business together has given us momentum. We’re excited to expand our offer to a full suite of civil design services including flooding, stormwater, drainage, earthworks and road design.
It is with great pleasure we announce that Stephen Naughton is joining our team as head of Civil Engineering and we couldn’t be more excited about the future.
“We are very excited to welcome Stephen to the team and look forward to the expansion of our multi-disciplinary offering to both existing and new clients” said Andrew Morse, ptc.’s partner and Senior Traffic Engineer. “Stephen’s reputation in the market is excellent and will contribute to the continuing improvement of our team culture and professional development”.
ptc. provides expert parking, traffic and transport advice to property owners, developers and managers. Its consultants and engineers work alongside each client’s team to maximise the value of their properties and deliver an outstanding customer experience. The expansion into civil engineering perfectly complements the existing services to ensure clients can have access to a one-stop shop for their projects.
