Craig Stoddart Celebrates 5 Years with CJC Management

"I enjoy working on a range of different projects. I also enjoy helping people to develop the projects that they are involved in.”

We are celebrating Principal, Craig Stoddart's 5-year anniversary with CJC Management. His leadership skills and expansive knowledge in Project Management and Civil Engineering have been truly valuable to our team. Here's to many more years of working together!

How did you find out about CJC?

It was 2016 and I remembered seeing an opportunity to grow a consulting business from the ground up with CJC Management. CJC is a company that can offer constructability as a dedicated service which I found incredibly exciting. From that moment on, I knew I wanted to be a part of it.

What is the best thing about being a part of CJC?

I feel fortunate to be able to get involved in some of the biggest and most complex infrastructure projects. The opportunity to contribute and develop my skills by overcoming challenges on projects such as WestConnex 1A M4 Widening, WestConnex 1B M4 East and Sydney Gateway Upgrade is exceptionally valuable to me.

Do you have a favourite project you have worked on?

The Western Harbour Tunnel and Beaches Link was a good project. Wonderful team to work with a challenge to figure out traffic staging for all 23 lanes of the Warringah Freeway.

What was your most memorable moment?

It would be a toss-up between climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge to look at the bridge arch maintenance units or the site inspections for the Sydney Ferries Wharf Upgrade project. The views from both these site inspections were amazing!

Do you have a project you find most challenging? How did you overcome it?

The Sydney Gateway Upgrade was quite challenging but rewarding at the same time. Notably the part of trying to understand a three-dimensional project in a very constrained environment. I managed to overcome this challenge by working through the constraints one at a time and then reviewing the proposed works one component at a time.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy working on a range of different projects. I also enjoy helping people to develop the projects that they are engaged in.

If you could say one thing to yourself 5 years ago, what would it be?
