Our Personnel – Julian Charlesworth

A relative newcomer to MAB, Julian has built a solid career across commercial, retail and residential projects.

Prior to MAB, Julian spent five years at Coffey Projects (formally Clifton Coney Group) working on developments ranging in value from $50M to $220M.

Key achievements for Julian during that time included project managing two stages of Waterfront City at Docklands and 100 St Georges Terrace in Perth.

“100 St Georges Terrace was particularly satisfying to deliver,” said Julian. “I became involved in the project mid way through construction at a very challenging stage. The commute from Melbourne to Perth almost weekly for the remaining duration added to the challenge. I did accumulate a lot of frequent flyer points during this time!”

Interestingly, Julian has been involved in the development and construction of two prison facilities under a Public Private Partnership (PPP) arrangement during his time at Baulderstone Hornibrook. “These may not be the most glamorous developments on my CV, but the PPP delivery model and different design approach required for a prison was very interesting,” he said.

During his 12 months at MAB, Julian has already delivered the successful HarbourOne development and is now focussed on MAB’s latest residential development – The Quays.

“To be involved in the development process from an early stage and then following this through and converting the drawn form into the built form is very satisfying and rewarding,” said Julian.

“The design for The Quays is cutting edge. The result will make a striking statement at the gateway to NewQuay,” said Julian. “It is interesting to see how the design has evolved across the entire NewQuay precinct.”

His current work at NewQuay was not his first experience at the precinct. Julian detailed an earlier connection to MAB while working as a Cadet Engineer at Bovis Lend Lease many years ago.

“Our project team toured through the first residential tower at NewQuay during its construction,” said Julian. “At that stage, this development was MAB’s first brush stroke on the blank canvas that was NewQuay.

“It is a real thrill to be working at NewQuay more than 10 years on from that initial inspection and to see how MAB’s vision for the precinct has come alive.

“To be involved in delivering something very tangible, something that will stand for future generations, is very satisfying,” said Julian. “I have always said that l want to be involved in the development of projects that impact on the skyline of our city. At MAB, l am doing this.”
