Waterman strengthens team with key appointment

Glen Pederick has joined the group’s Melbourne office as an associate director and brings with him a wealth of experience in mechanical services.

Multidisciplinary consultancy firm Waterman Group has sought to strengthen its position in both in Australia and internationally with a key appointment. Glen Pederick has joined the group’s Melbourne office as an associate director and brings with him a wealth of experience in mechanical services, as well as in the highly specialised field of lift technology.

A chartered professional engineer, Glen has over 25 years’ experience and has designed building services for a number of major developments across Australia, including commercial, hotel, residential, retail, education, and aviation projects. By his own admission, vertical transportation design is Glen’s passion and his expertise in this area is expected to help grow Waterman’s services internationally.

A member of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s (CTBUH) Advisory Group, Glen is an expert in elevator design in tall buildings and has written landmark papers on lift technology. He also delivered one of the keynote speeches at the CTBUH’s Shanghai International Conference in September 2014, on how vertical transportation is transforming the modern city.

As an active contributor to the construction industry in Australia, Glen has also been a member of the Property Council of Australia and served on the Victorian Government Building Appeals Board. He believes that his multidisciplinary approach has helped him provide a high level of service to a wide range of clients.

Philip Barnes, Managing Director of Waterman Melbourne, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Glen on board. His specialist lift services design skills and knowledge will help us to expand our services nationally and internationally. Glen also has a significant network in the airports sector, and we are hoping that he can assist us in growing this important sector in Australia. His experience, expertise and multidisciplinary approach is an excellent fit for a company like Waterman, and we’re sure Glen will make a significant contribution in helping us to continue to deliver world class services to clients, both here in Australia and on the global stage.”
