Jacqui’s interest in developing began with her grandmother who was very successful at developing. She shares her story of becoming a Design Manager and Tenancy Coordinator in charge of $200 million dollar projects.
We explore the complexities involved when developing large scale projects, the pathway Jacqui embarked on to purchasing property, dealing with risk, working out feasibilities, handling confidence in an uncertain market and creating and deciding on an amazing plan.
As part of the DevelopHer group we engage in fortnightly Q & As and we had a session where we joined together to do a Value Management session on Jacqui’s project. This collaboration really helped to remove the emotion and bring in the reality of the build to give Jacqui a strategic focus.
Jacqui takes us through the incredible beauty of the build and her vision for how it will feel when finished. She talks about the materials, warmth, space, windows, and flooring that she has worked into the plan to create an amazing space.
You’ll find so much inspiration from Jacqui’s journey and her experience. She’s definitely thought through every aspect of the project to ensure she gives the owner the best possible feeling when they walk through the door. Everyone in the DevelopHer group are supporting and cheering her on - we can’t wait to see the final product!
