Andrew Craddock started in engineering in 2003 with Parramatta City Council. During this time Andrew worked within the drainage section and expanded his knowledge of drainage design, floodplain management and hydraulic analysis. This valuable experience with local government allowed Andrew to understand the complexity of council procedures and planning controls, guiding development consent conditions and consolidating skills to achieve approvals for successful development outcomes for the private sector.
In 2004 Andrew joined Siteplus as a student engineer where he expanded his engineering knowledge of urban development including stormwater, sewer and water main design. Andrew graduated in 2005 as a Civil Engineer with Honors and continued working with Siteplus. Since that time Andrew has completed a number of engineering projects from conception through to delivery.
Andrew has developed a high level of technical skills by designing environmentally friendly urban systems and using the latest engineering design software. Andrew shows an in depth understanding of urban engineering systems and has worked with all the relevant authorities to achieve the required project outcomes.
Andrew has continued his professional development by studying Engineering Management and is developing his Project Management skill through managing small subdivision projects.
