John Currenti

Director

John Currenti brings strong and vast project management and construction skills developed over 20 years in the commercial sector (seven years at St Hilliers Construction, eight at Watpac Construction and three at Leighton Contractors) to provide a level of professionalism known to tier 1-2 builders.

John has delivered in excess of $800m of construction works, built 739 residential dwellings, delivered 22 major projects over his career and collected significant industry awards:

  • 2009 The Australian Institute of Building. Professional Excellence NSW Award category $10m-$50m
  • 2009 The Australian Institute of Building. Professional Excellence National Award category $10m-$50m

Matt has worked in both the UK and Australia in the commercial and domestic building sectors for tier 1 building contractors. In 2012, Matt and John worked closely together on the iconic $115m National Tennis Centre for Melbourne and Olympic Parks, where Matt was responsible for all financial and contractual metrics of the project.

More recently, Matt has spent time in the family’s manufacturing business managing the commercial, production, and capital works functions whilst leading the sale process of the business to an international cooperative. This unique blend of experience provides Matt with an invaluable insight into the mindset of commercial client’s, where building projects, often critical to future expansion, don’t form the skillset of their own workforce.

It is Matt’s approachable nature and depth of knowledge and experience that gives Currenti Constructions the edge over other building companies, as we strive to deliver projects on time and within budget.
