Bachelor of Civil Engineering (Hons)
Troy Channells has been involved in the construction industry for more than 20 years, gaining considerable experience working for industry giants such as Leighton Contractors, Hansen Yuncken and St Hilliers Construction.
Troy’s career began with roles on major infrastructure projects including The Star Casino in Sydney and the Bankstown Hospital redevelopment. His involvement in these projects, from concept through to completion helped him establish a solid skills base which he has continued to grow and develop.
Troy’s proven supervisory and management skills ensure the successful delivery of projects of any scale. Beginning each project with in-depth coordination, preparation and implementation of procedures and techniques, Troy’s attention to detail and methodical approach ensures the quality and engineering of design projects is of the highest standard. He particularly excels on public-private partnerships (PPPs) where design approval with multiple stakeholders represents a significant challenge.
Troy played a major in the completion of the Hopkins Correctional Centre (Ararat) PPP in Victoria. He reviewed client specifications for the distressed project and ensured all technical content was incorporated into the design to meet all contract obligations, particularly for services which the original builder had left in a terrible state. Troy did this by liaising closely with project engineers and other consultants and carefully crafting a programme for works and the allocation of resources.
Troy’s technical experience with correctional projects led him to review the Eastern Goldfields Regional Prison PPP in Western Australia and the Darwin Correctional Precinct PPP in the Northern Territory.
Attention to detail and a disciplined approach to design and construction principles makes Troy an essential member of the Gowdie Management Group team.
