The Building Talks Podcast

Martin Preece

A fortnightly podcast where we meet and talk to professionals in the Construction, Property Development, Engineering, Architecture and Consulting sectors across Australia's Built Environment. During our building talks, we discuss topics and issues faced across the industry and specialist sectors within it, discuss the careers and experiences of guests, whilst getting to know the people behind the projects, and the construction and development projects they have been a part of.

Our guests span the built environment - so includes leaders from architects, engineers, builders, consulting Project Managers or Quantity surveyors, industry researchers, HR and business experts - all people 'in the know' who work within the build environment and have some insights and deep understanding of the industry.
