Tony Avsec

Executive Quantity Surveyor

I believe that being great at your job is not enough: to deliver real value you need to understand the market, clearly identify client needs, communicate well and be prepared to put in the work to deliver the best solution.

Tony is a well known specialist with a lot of experience in Quantity Surveying. Having left Lendlease with 33 years experience in cost consulting, Tony joins GRC to grow, develop and mentor our team with his wisdom.

Best advice I ever received
The importance of presenting your work succinctly with key insights for those relying on it to make major commitments

What I like about my career
The travel – having learned very early in my career from my first employer’s chief estimator how to estimate projects in unfamiliar markets and geographies, it’s given me tremendous opportunity to work all over Australia and the world with my versatility to be able to estimate all types of projects in any location

Slogan for life

It’s much easier and less painful to learn from other people’s scars than getting your own from firsthand mistakes – pay attention when being cautioned about the road ahead
