Project manager Rosanna Petteno has been named the NSW winner of the award for Achievement in Construction, Refurbishment and Fitout as part of the 2011 National Association of Women in Construction Awards for Excellence.
Petteno, who works for global professional services consultancy Coffey International, won the award for her work on fashion brand Burberry’s flagship retail store in Sydney (pictured).
The $6 million development project combined restoration and enhancement of heritage elements of the former bank site with a modern, high-end fitout in line with the brand’s prestige.
“It was a high profile project which required the management of multiple stakeholders, including an overseas client, heritage considerations and met a very tight timeframe,” said Tony Carroll, Coffey Projects Manager NSW/ACT.
“Rosanna demonstrated a commitment and passion to deliver positive outcomes within the project, providing valuable recommendations, communicating effectively with all stakeholders and providing design and construction guidance through the process. The success of the project was testament to this commitment and dedication.”
NAWIC recognised Petteno’s contribution to the project, as well as favourably compared the quality of the construction outcomes, application of innovation, and active cost management with other award submissions.
The former University of Technology Sydney student has a Bachelor of Design (Interior Design) and a Diploma of Urban Estate Management from the institution and has been employed at Coffey for close to five years.
