On your project:
Our team cultivates an honest and transparent relationship with all project partners and stakeholders over the life of your project. We build long-term relationships with our clients based on loyalty, integrity and trust.
It means we provide unlimited levels of consultation and engagement through the project period to ensure you are comfortable. We understand most of our clients aren’t construction or engineering professionals and that it’s vital we communicate and report as the project progresses to ensure all stakeholders remain across its progress and performance against the schedule.
Additionally, our energy, adaptability and commitment means we’re happy to spend whatever time it takes at your job site – wherever it is in the world – to ensure the project is completed within the timeframe and budget you signed off.
Sustainability is an increasingly important challenge for every organisation, in every sphere. As both public and private sectors embrace sustainability, the way a project is managed has become a key factor of success in this area.
We are wholeheartedly committed to minimising the negative environmental and social impacts created by the construction industry and we encourage our clients to be mindful of sustainability issues and how they can be addressed at various stages of planning and construction.

Ever cognisant of project requirements Peter’s dedication and commitment in response to customer requests including those resultant of changing circumstance and/or revision of initial task/work scope and definition has been exemplary. His attitude, adaptability and aplomb with which he has delivered services to/for, and on behalf of (this) client underpins a work ethic clearly focused on delivering best practice outcomes for his customer. The candor with which his clear and concise advice is delivered is also refreshing and very much appreciated. His talents are such that his name has been passed to others (within the DCP PNG) who may also require and/or realise benefit from his services. On a personal note I found Peter to be of pleasant nature and always a pleasure to deal with. Peter is considered an excellent representative of the ‘Wildara’ brand intent on delivering effective, efficient and value for money services to the entire satisfaction of the customer. As indicated above I have no hesitation in recommending Peter’s services to others and note that he is currently engaged on the (ADS DCP) Com-Cen relocation Project at Manus Is.

Defence Logistics Transformation Project – RAAF Amberley
Peter was responsible for project managing the project’s Managing Contractor (MC) during the construction phase of the project. Peter’s contribution to the DLTP WP2 works was invaluable. Peter’s highly collaborative and successful approach to stakeholder engagement, particularly having regard for the very large number of stakeholders and end users with diverse interests was of particular note. Peter’s involvement supported a relatively straight forward handover/takeover of a significantly large and complex project stage. WP2 was one element of a large national project, with complex inter-relationships between sites and projects. Noting the significant priority and scrutiny the DLTP received, Peter was highly responsive and supported the program and Defence’s objectives.
Adam Rankin, Technical Director, Government and Defence – Aurecon Group
Upper Paradise Housing Project – Papua New Guinea
Wildara and Peter Bowden in particular always performed at a very high level in a very demanding environment on an extremely complex project that was characterised by diverse stakeholders, remote location with no organic workforce or support infrastructure such as materials supply and highly charged political situation of delivering a foreign government policy outcome in a country that was not receptive to this. Wildara managed all of these aspects as well as an underperforming Contractor to achieve client expectations around time, cost, and quality.
