Bachelor of Construction Management, Newcastle University (2015)
Daniel King commenced work with Graph in February 2015, when he was still an undergraduate. His undergraduate studies were initially undertaken on a full-time basis on the Callaghan campus, but his final year was completed part-time so that he could obtain industry experience with Graph. During this final year, Daniel was employed as a labourer/first aid officer, gaining “hands-on” experience on a project involving a major refurbishment of a licenced club, Wests Cardiff ($11.8m).
In 2016, Daniel moved into the role of Contract Administrator, where he assisted Graph’s Project Managers in the administration of a wide range of projects, including the refurbishment of Wests City ($11.0m), a substantial upgrade of The Anchorage, Port Stephens ($8.0m), a new high-end residence at Corlette ($3.5m), Riverlink Maitland ($4.0m) and Shortland Waters Golf Club ($7.3m).
Daniel subsequently moved into managing his own projects and, early in 2019, was appointed to the position of Project Manager, where he has quickly grown and developed. His projects have included a number of refurbishment projects for Belmont 16s (a licenced club on the shores of Lake Macquarie), a medium density public housing project for the NSW Land and Housing Corporation, a number of single dwellings, one of which is located in a flame zone, two separate aged care projects for Jewells Lifestyle Community (each contract around $5m), several projects in public schools, and three refurbishment projects at Western Suburbs (N’cle) Leagues Club.
Dan is building his career on a solid base of qualifications and experience, and is enthusiastic about working in the industry for a long time to come.
