Danya Pearce

Senior Advisor

Danya has over 20 years’ experience in the resources, engineering and construction sectors in South Africa and more recently the Australian markets. Her focus for the past 15 years has been in planning and programme management, contract management and project controls has led to a passion for successful project delivery through team work and collaboration.

She commenced her career in the resource and process plant industry with global engineering EPCM firms and then moved in to the property and contracting sectors and has moved within both industries ever since, having experience in both client side as well as Tier 1 contractors. This has exposed her to various project types and management styles and have become adept at change management through this varied project exposure. With proficiency in project management principles and constructability analysis during inception and development phases; through to tendering and construction and finally commissioning and close out; her work accomplishments have included implementing effective and fit for purpose project controls with reliable cost and time data which have allowed her colleagues to make effective and informed commercial decisions.

Her passion for programming and schedule development, as well as ensuring information is accurate and therefore reporting is robust, resulted in her conducting a thesis for her post graduate degree on the topic of Delay Analysis.

Her recent work accomplishments include setting up baseline programmes and monitoring progress for major developments such as Queens Wharf Development, Caboolture and Tweed Valley Hospitals as well as Southern Queensland Correctional Precinct which have been used to facilitate accepted entitlements for time and quantum claims. Prior to that she worked for a consultancy in the coal resource sector conducting programming work for studies such as Isaac Downs Bankable Feasibility, Aquila Long Wall Project and Yancoal Pre-Feasibility and Feasibility work-plan development.

Danya holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Construction Management from Wits University in South Africa and a Master’s Degree in Construction law and Practice from Salford University in the UK.
