Welcome to our new Estimating Manager!
Premis is excited to welcome the newest member of our team, Jean-Paul (JP) Baas, as our Estimating Manager. With over 25 years in the construction industry, he brings a wealth of knowledge to the role and will add an additional layer of expertise to our already capable team.
JP started his career as a Quantity Surveyor and in 2005, moved away from this role into that of a Senior Estimator with several large, well-known construction companies. Over this time, he was instrumental in winning a number of key projects in South East Queensland. JP’s skills include construction management, cost planning, project planning, value engineering, quantity surveying, contract management, and procurement.
JP was initially contracted to Premis on a number of large tenders, including the Queensland Wet Museum project — which Premis won — and he soon came to the realisation that he would like to join the team on a permanent basis. He stated his reasons for the transtion as an alignment of company philosophies, and the trust that was affforded him with the tender process. JP also felt trusted, at ease and developed an instant rapport with the construction and existing estimating team.
Premis is on a growth trajectory and JP’s appointment supports this exciting new chapter of our company’s bright and successful future. We believe he will be an amazing mentor and leader to the estimating team, and welcome him wholeheartedly to the Premis family!
