Anthony Wood

West Australia Lead, WA
Established more than 50 years ago in Perth, Western Australia (WA), BG&E has a long and successful track record of providing world-class engineering solutions for clients in the Property, Transport, Ports and Marine, Water, Defence, Renewables and Resources sectors.

Today, we are delighted to announce Anthony Wood has been promoted to the role of WA Lead at BG&E, after fulfilling the role of Civil Lead – WA for many years. With more than 25 years’ experience across various sectors, including in managing multidisciplinary projects and collaborating with clients, stakeholders and the community, Anthony is well-positioned to lead and grow the WA team and to help clients to deliver more award-winning projects. He is an Executive Director on the BG&E Group Board and a pro-active contributor to the Executive Leadership Team.

We also celebrate Padraic Murphy being promoted into the Civil Lead – WA role. Padraic has over 20 years’ experience in project management, project development, highway planning and design, contract administration and site supervision, gained from a diverse range of major infrastructure projects, among others.

Below are some of the projects that BG&E has contributed during the past two years, for a range of clients including Main Roads WA, Public Transport Authority of WA, Georgiou, CPB, BMD, Scentre Group and Multiplex, to name a few.

Frank Cerra, Managing Director of BG&E says, “I am proud of Anthony’s and Padraic’s contribution to BG&E and excited about what the future holds under their leadership. Both have great relationships with their teams, clients and industry peers, and as growth continues in the West, I’m sure Anthony and Padraic will continue helping clients to solve complex problems and enhancing the built environment.

“I’d also like to thank Peter de Bruin for his outstanding contribution to helping to build BG&E into a powerhouse in the West and in Dubai. His contribution spanned three decades and has been extraordinary, including in helping to manage and mitigate risk, and in developing and implementing community-focused programmes, particularly, Indigenous cultural awareness initiatives. We look forward to Peter’s continued involvement with BG&E as a Consultant.”

As Perth’s economy continues to rebound due to buoyant household demand, increasing consumer confidence and considerable investment in public infrastructure, as well as the myriad of rejuvenation projects that are being deployed across the city, such as, the Wellington Square Master Plan, East End Revitalisation Plan, Roe Street Enhancement Precinct and the proposed Northbridge Special Entertainment Precinct, BG&E will build on our half a century legacy.

At BG&E, we remain committed to providing excellent opportunities for our people, setting new benchmarks in technical excellence, improving safety, connectivity and network reliability of infrastructure, enhancing the return on investment from assets and responding to the changing climate.

Collaboration, trust, resilience, buildability are hallmarks of BG&E’s teams and our client’s projects.
