Natalie Bell

Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Laws

Natalie Bell leads Gowdie Management Group’s Perth office and is an essential member of our project management team. She has a proven track record in managing key relationships to meet project briefs and has a well-rounded understanding of development and asset management.

With degrees in business and law, Natalie is able to understand and manage contractural rights and obligations, ensuring clients receive exceptional service. She is particularly talented in negotiating with contractors, compiling, reviewing and administering contracts and advising clients on best outcomes and value-for-money decisions from a whole-of-project viewpoint. Having worked on many large projects in the early phases of development, including feasibility studies, business cases and risk profiling, Natalie is highly skilled in determining a project’s scope, benefits, costs, programme and risks, so that the delivery method and asset life are well considered and understood before commencing delivery.

Natalie’s other fields of competence include project planning and direction of complex major projects, feasibility assessment, and procurement options analysis and documentation. She is adept at coordinating and managing stakeholder and consultant teams throughout the business case and concept and design development of a project, and is particularly skilled at introducing change while maintaining positive relationships with all stakeholders.

Natalie led Gowdie Management Group’s project team for the $550m Raine Square redevelopment in Perth’s CBD. She produced the original risk profile and project status report for the financiers of this distressed development and continued working on the project throughout its re-initiation, construction, fit-out, maintenance and sale.

Natalie’s experience working on project-specific business case analysis, where project scope, benefits and costs are highly scrutinised and delivery is critical, means she is often called upon to provide forensic analysis and undertake preliminary investigative works when variations and extensions of time claims or disputes arise between parties to a contract. Her ability to interpret project documentation, understand construction methodologies and assess and forecast project data and progress means she is always able to provide the best possible result for her clients.
