Carol Clemson was first employed in the civil construction division of Walter Construction in the year 2000 and worked on several major infrastructure projects. They include but not limited to; Caboolture Northern Bypass, Mt Lindsay Highway Project and the Townsville Sugar Shed to name a few.
Carol then joined Leighton Contractors (now CPB) in 2005 and moved into the building division of the company. She spent the next 13 years at CPB, prior to joining the team here at Suttons. In her capacity as Contracts admin she has worked on many major infrastructure projects in the Civil, building and gas sectors all over the country. The most significant projects being HQ Building in Wickham St The Valley Brisbane, several Department of Defence Projects at Anderleigh Airforce Base and the Icthys Gas Plant in Darwin.
The above Projects were worth many millions of dollars to complete, the smallest around $60 million and the largest $46 Billion dollars but no matter what size the project the principles, Carol says, are always the same. Below are the principles that Carol says has been important in maintaining a long career in the construction industry.
