Paul Lassemillante, Director of Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) in Darwin, will be retiring on 31 March 2022.

During his 34 years with RLB, Paul has been involved in all areas of quantity surveying, building a strong reputation and contributing to some of the Northern Territory’s most significant projects.

Paul commenced his career in London in 1983 and joined RLB in Adelaide in 1988. He moved to Darwin in 1993 to take up the position of Cost Manager for the Australian Defence Force’s Army Presence in the North project, predominately at Robertson Barracks. This led the Northern Territory into a period of unprecedented growth.  

Paul was subsequently involved with a series of very successful projects, including the Darwin Waterfront, the Darwin Marine Supply Base and the Darwin Correctional Centre. He contributed to several high-profile projects at Charles Darwin University and most medium and high-rise residential developments in and around Darwin.

“I’ve been honoured to work on many important infrastructure and building projects for the Northern Territory. These projects, and the excellent rapport I have built with clients and colleagues, have been career highlights,” Mr Lassemillante said.

RLB Director John Drillis acknowledged Mr Lassemillante’s outstanding contribution. “Over nearly three decades, Paul has delivered sound advice and contributed his cost management expertise to shape a city. He has also made exceptional contributions to several professional industry bodies across the Northern Territory.”

“On behalf of RLB’s Board of Directors, I congratulate Paul on his outstanding career and extend my appreciation for his valuable contribution to our clients and to RLB across Oceania,” added Peter Tulla, RLB Oceania Chairman.

“It has been a true privilege to build my career with Rider Levett Bucknall and the property and construction industry in Darwin and the Northern Territory more broadly. I sincerely thank all the clients, colleagues and friends who have made the journey so memorable.” Mr Lassemillante concluded.

Closer to the time, RLB will outline the people who will lead the Darwin office into its 50th year and beyond.
