Parsons Brinckerhoff’s Australia-Pacific Geospatial operations recently appointed Phil Punter to the role of Principal GIS consultant in Brisbane, and Perth-based Peter Houwen, as the new Team Manager for Western Australia, South Australia and Victoria.
Both Mr Punter and Mr Houwen worked at ESRI Australia delivering a wide range of projects to both the public and private sectors across the country.
Punter and Houwen have experience in the utilities, mining, transport, science & broader engineering sectors.
“Their reputation and contacts in the utilities industry will prove invaluable and their experience, leadership skills and rigorous approach to project management will help to minimise risk and strengthen our ability to deliver these large asset management and development projects, on-time and within-budget across all states,” said Simon Davies, Parsons Brinckerhoff Geospatial Section Executive.
“Joining Parsons Brinckerhoff provides the opportunity for me to get involved in a variety of infrastructure projects and the chance to combine best-practise GIS technology with the unique domain knowledge inherent within the organisation,” said Mr Punter.
Mr Punter’s specialist area is in Internet-based mapping and he has developed expert knowledge in using every generation of ESRI’s Internet mapping technology including ArcView IMS, ArcIMS and ArcGIS Server.
Mr Houwen’s specialisations include project management, proposal preparation, user needs and functional specifications, implementation services management, systems integration and analysis and quality management services.
