Rider Levett Bucknall has appointed Sam Martin to the role of Senior Associate in South Australia.

Sam has a long history with RLB starting in 2006 as a cadet quantity surveyor. Since then, he has undertaken cost planning and estimating services throughout all project phases to deliver complex and challenging projects.

Sam said he was proud and delighted to take on the Senior Associate role and is looking forward to building on more than 65 years’ worth of history in South Australia to shape the future of the built environment.

“This is both a challenging and exciting time for the industry,” Sam said. “Property and construction advances all of humanity as the world becomes more complex, as actions to address environmental challenges become even more urgent and embracing the latest technologies and innovation more necessary than ever. I am honoured to assume the position of senior associate and to represent RLB as it works to solve global challenges.”

RLB’s SA Managing Director John Drillis said:

Excelling in a collaborative format, Sam works well in a high-performance team, demonstrating good communication skills and a problem-solving approach to challenges. He enjoys the opportunity to take on complex and challenging projects and has a high level of technical capability and attention to detail, critical to ensuring the success of any project.

Our priority is, and has always been, to deliver independent cost management and quantity surveying and advisory services in all areas of the built environment to deliver successful and sustainable outcomes for our clients. To achieve this, we remain committed to leveraging the insights we gain from our global interactions and with Sam’s promotion we will continue to transform and innovate.

Sam received his Bachelor of Construction Management and Economics from the University of South Australia and has a distinguished record of major construction projects including the University of South Australia Cancer Research Institute, the University of Adelaide Health and Medical Science School, GPO Exchange, Flinders University Computer Science, Engineering and Mathematics Building, Adelaide Botanic High School and the new Whyalla Secondary School.
