Meet Sensus Building Group’s Sunshine Coast Project Manager, James Lee.
Next time you visit a Sensus Sunshine Coast site you’re bound to bump into our experienced project manager and resident Irishman, James Lee.
James has been with the business for the past eight years and has managed construction builds across the region. On any given day you can find him on Sensus sites across Noosa, Buderim, Caboolture and even out in regional Queensland.
“The lads build and construct a diverse array of projects for our clients. During the past few months, we’ve seen Independent Living Units in Buderim, council maintenance upgrades in Nambour and large-scale Catholic school works in Gympie,” says James.
“I’m often busy visiting our tradies and trusted local sub-contractors on sites across the Sunshine Coast. No matter what site I visit, I always know that our team pride themselves on delivering to the highest standards.”
Before joining the business, James ran a successful construction company in Ireland.
“I built houses from the ground up in Ireland – transforming vacant lots into turn keys homes,” says James. “We also renovated residential works, extensive council maintenance jobs and historic buildings. A highlight was transforming a former orphanage into residential living.”
And the main difference between construction projects in Australia and Ireland? The weather!
“Here in Australia, we usually have clear skies to complete exterior works. But back in Ireland there were times we would have to delay projects by two, three weeks because of the rain,” says James.
A carpenter by trade and project manager by heart, James also worked on large scale projects in Sydney, including The Star Casino, before moving back to Ireland, and then settling on the Sunshine Coast with his family in 2013.
“My wife Lorraine and I have three children so it’s important to me to work for a company that values flexibility,” says James. “Our leadership team is supportive of the lads and I maintaining a work life balance. Before Covid, I was able to take a few weeks off every now and again to take the family back to Ireland.”
And while another trip to Ireland may be a while off, James is looking forward to the exciting future projects on the horizon at Sensus.
