Our Leadership & Values

our values

Performance

Projects morph, contract and expand from start to finish. It always seems too hard to react to these changes and outline how they will impact the remainder of the scope. We value a quick response, working harder and faster and focusing on the things that matter so you always know which way to steer your project.

Proactivity 

Project Management and Project Controls call for proactive engagement. We value conversation – especially conversations with the full project team to mitigate big hairy problems that will hit them later! We specialise in getting on top of it now, which means we value proactivity highly. At the end of the day, it’s our reputation on the line too.

Integrity

We value the provision of accurate, timely information – so you always receive a genuine representation of your project’s performance at any given time in plain English. We challenge all wasteful systems, reports and processes, ensuring we only ever present information that will support you in the effective management of your project.

our leadership

Christian Chandler

Director

After spending 12 years working in a combination of residential, commercial, large mining and infrastructure projects, Christian found that schedule development and management was performed inefficiently across the board. Improving on these processes could greatly assist in project delivery not only in terms of time but also quality, cost and risk – so he founded Consilium.

Christian’s passion for the integration of cost, schedule and resourcing associated with projects both small and large scale has resulted in significant improvements not only at a project level but across portfolios and businesses too. Christian draws on his deep experience in project management, project supervision and training groups in the project management body of knowledge to lead Consilium. He is proficient in using and training others in the use of various project and portfolio management tools, including but not limited to Primavera, MS Project, PPM, Planview and 1sap.

Christian’s project experience is backed by a Bachelors degree in Construction Management and Economics as well as Diplomas in Building and Builders Registration.
