Paynter Dixon has appointed experienced project and development manager, Peter Darling, as the company’s new Construction Manager.

Peter brings to Paynter Dixon an extensive background in mixed-use, residential, commercial and industrial developments, working with major Sydney property developers and construction companies.

Executive Chairman James Boyd said the appointment followed Paynter Dixon’s strategy to recruit the best operatives in the construction industry.

“Peters’ wealth of experience and involvement in large scale projects throughout the years at Concrete Constructions, Walker Corp and PAYCE will bolster our team’s skillset,” Mr Boyd said.

“In addition, his vast knowledge of the development industry will further expand our diverse portfolio of projects and offering to the market.”

The qualified carpenter and joiner has more than 34 years industry experience, including several major Sydney projects.

“I came into the industry trade based, started my career on domestic jobs until I joined Concrete Constructions, with my first job being Campbelltown Hospital,” Mr Darling said.

“Like many passionate kids starting out, I worked my way through the ranks from apprentice carpenter through to Senior Project Manager and then progressed into Development Management.”

Peter will be assisting Project Manager Jamie Vlatko on stage two of the Club Parramatta project and also working on the upcoming St Vincent’s Hospital project.

Peter worked as a Development Manager at Australian Property Development Company PAYCE and Project Management firm JAPM.

“I really enjoyed my time at PAYCE and JAPM,” he said.

“My role included development management for subdivisions, planning proposals and planning applications, and delivery, ensuring the projects were completed to the required quality.

“I worked with Project Directors on site acquisitions and risk issues such as infrastructure services, site contamination and planning authority requirements when actually purchasing sites.”

Recently, Peter completed work on the successful first stage of the Melrose Park North Project – One Melrose.

“I can leave One Melrose knowing the entire build process ran smoothly with no accidents and safety being a number one priority,” he said.

“The build quality was also there, keeping clients and purchasers happy.”
