Damon James, Managing Director
One of Q’s founding directors, Damon has been instrumental in defining Q’s vision and strategy, driving our development across the financial, design and construction spectrum. Since starting over 15 years ago, he has gained a wealth of project, engineering, construction and business management experience, which in many ways embodies the concept-to-completion ethos that underpins Q’s capabilities. He has applied his broad technical and commercial skills to a diverse range of small and very high-value projects across Australia, from remote mine processing plants, water treatment facilities and airports, to marine infrastructure, major commercial warehousing, resorts and office building works.
Pascal Weiss, General Manager - Operations
Ensuring we fulfil our strategic business objectives and commitments to our clients, Pascal is a lynchpin at Q, making sure we comply with our benchmark safety, environment and quality standards. After beginning his career in South Africa over 20 years ago, where he developed an impressive portfolio of design technology and construction management experience, he brought his considerable skills to Perth, tackling a number of project and operations management roles. This breadth of knowledge is reflected in the range of projects he has driven to fruition, including remote-area infrastructure, large-scale warehousing, office building works and major housing projects.
Toshiyuki Maeda , BIM Modeller and detailer
Our in-house BIM guru, Toshi is pivotal to everything we do at Q – he builds the 3D and 4D models from which project foundation details are made. A highly qualified and experienced mechanical engineer, he has been involved in a wide range of commercial construction projects – engineering knowledge and experience that informs his concept-to-completion Building Information Modelling (BIM) work. It’s this understanding of all aspects of the design, engineering and construction process that make his all-encompassing BIM expertise so vital, enabling us to find smarter solutions and streamline delivery to save our clients time and money.
Matthew Davey, Project Manager
Matthew has driven a broad range of key projects to completion throughout WA, overseeing everything from estimating and planning, to contract management, cost control, safety and financial reporting. Originally a carpenter by trade, he has gained a formidable breadth of practical commercial construction experience since he started out in the industry over 20 years ago. His ability to identify and mitigate design and construction issues before they become a costly problem makes him an invaluable asset – a living example of how Q’s concept-to-completion capabilities streamline projects and minimise costs for our clients.
Chris D’Sylva, Project Engineer
From managing a not-for-profit organisation, to running his own IT consultancy, to becoming a highly respected engineer, Chris’ unconventional professional background and journey to a career in engineering is a real boon to us at Q. His diverse experience means he brings a unique blend of technical and commercial expertise to our solutions, along with exceptional people and project management skills – crucial to ensuring every project runs as smoothly as possible. In this way, Chris adds value at every stage of the development lifecycle, often finding ways to fast-track our projects, saving clients valuable time and money.
Adam Pirihi, Site Manager
Adam’s impressive ability to effectively manage both people and projects make him invaluable in his role at Q. Having successfully managed a diverse portfolio of multi-million dollar projects throughout WA, he brings a wealth of skills and experience to every project. Starting his career as a carpenter, his practical, hands-on approach, and his excellent, all-round communication skills make all the difference in achieving a seamless transition from project concept to completion. Adam demonstrates the innovative, solution-focused way of thinking that we value at Q – always striving to do things smarter and better.
