Strategic and intuitive, Geoff Bills has over a decade of structural engineering design experience. His fast-tracked progression to Associate Director has been due to his technical acumen to solve highly complex engineering problems and successfully collaborate with design partners.
Geoff has been involved in a wide range of project sectors including retail, commercial, industrial, government, healthcare; many of which include major refurbishments and heritage. He specialises in large scale, iconic projects that require high structural engineering advice from the outset. One of his most notable projects includes the multi-million dollar redevelopment of GPT’s Charlestown Square due to the shear size and rapid construction pace of the precinct.
- Most Notable Projects
Best thing about being an engineer?
I love working across a range of projects, all with different challenges, styles, and environments. There are constant opportunities to meet new people and work together for a common goal. I enjoy seeing a project through from concept stage, to design and construction – watching something in a sketch become reality, and being able to say, “I was part of that building” in years to come.
What has been your career highlight and why?
Being part of a team that successfully delivered the 161 Sussex Street project. The architectural form and the tight project location constraints – in particular with it being located directly over the functioning Western Distributor – provided some huge engineering challenges. It makes me proud every time I drive past or underneath it.
What are you looking forward to at TTW?
I am always looking forward to the next project, the next challenge, meeting new people, catching up with old friends. It’s an exciting time at TTW as we grow and evolve, and I look forward to being a part of the company’s future.
