Daniel is a Senior Structural Engineer and is responsible for managing and delivering the design and construction of structural and civil engineering projects. As a senior engineer with pitt&sherry, he has a varied role, which also includes management of design teams and resource allocation. This engineering experience has ranged from typical technical design to contract administration duties and on-site roles during construction. Daniel’s extensive experience in the design, construction and investigation of both Structural and Civil projects often involves extensive site work and interstate travel away from his family.

Daniel has a young family with 3 children under the age of 7 and a wife that has returned to part time work. To balance this busy lifestyle, Daniel works part time with a flexible arrangement that enables him to be a stay at home Dad for one day of the week and work increased hours for the remainder of the working week.

“The ability for me to work flexibly has enables me to be more present and involved in raising my children. Whether it be the day to day family routine or the ability to attend a school assembly or excursion, this extra involvement with my family and flexible work arrangement has helped to create a good balance between work and family. I feel that this improved balance between work and family has helped to foster a healthy and happy family environment, which has in turn improved my enjoyment and morale at work.”
