Lindsay J Robertson

Summary:

An experienced and qualified professional engineer. Experience has been in New Zealand, Singapore, Philippines, USA, Australia and UK where I have worked on large-value projects at concept, feasibility, tendering, construction, and commissioning stages. My broad experience and qualifications will bring perspective to large and complex projects, distilling issues and solutions. My experience of working with diverse and geographically distributed teams, and in a range of environments (including construction, consulting, design, project management, R&D) will ensure quick ramp-up. Value can be added at all project stages, in either leading or participatory roles, based on familiarity with contractual, tendering, construction and commissioning issues.
