National internet project management company ProjectCentre has begun operating in Western Australia to leverage the state’s thriving construction and mining sector.

The web-based collaborative project delivery system provider already has international and national clients in the construction and mining industry—including major WA projects such as the Perth Arena Project, the Collgar Wind Farm, Westrac’s new facilities at South Guildford and the Merredin Power Station—making opening a WA arm a natural move.

“Western Australia is a key part of our strategic growth objectives. The state continues to go from strength to strength, and it is vital for us to have good people on the ground in Perth to closely service our clients’ growing needs,” said Kevin Davis, CEO of ProjectCentre.

“Our vision is to provide a delivery platform to assist our Western Australian clients achieve their strategic goals of time, cost and quality management, for all stakeholders involved in their projects.”

The new Perth office joins ProjectCentre’s presence in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane and New Zealand, to be headed by the newly appointed Sara Feist (pictured).

“Ms Feist has extensive construction industry experience, in both the residential and commercial sectors as well as having worked in the IT sector as a qualified trainer,” said Davis. “She comes to ProjectCentre with strong product knowledge, having used our system to deliver the high profile Perth Arena Project in her most recent role with WA construction and engineering company, BGC Construction.”

Feist’s role will be to support ProjectCentre’s regional manager for WA and SA/NT, Jake Kearsley, formerly of global construction firm Sinclair Knight Merz.
