Staff Profile: Charles Boyce

3 August 2020

Charles has over 7 years of experience in the construction industry and has worked on a wide range of residential, commercial, and public buildings.

Initially starting in the industry as a labourer whilst completing a Project Management degree, Charles now leads BCA Logic’s Fire Penetration Team ensuring developments maintain a high level of life safety and compliance.

How did you break into this industry and why?

I initially started on site as a labourer and from there progressed to a Foreman and site manager role for residential, commercial, fit out projects and hotels. After being onsite I decided to use my project management degree and move into project management of fire orders. This consisted of working on near new buildings that had been constructed incorrectly and then coordinating contractors to upgrade the buildings. From there I moved into my current role at BCA Logic where my team and I assist builders to construct defect free buildings.

 

What do you like most about your job?

I love that there has been a defiant change in the industry to have works completed correctly and I am grateful to be able to share this passion with some of the best builders, engineers, architects and developers in Sydney.

I love being on site and interacting with everyone from the labourer to the project manager, along with seeing areas of the project that need improvement through to what is working well.

 

What has been your proudest achievement in your career?

Having the opportunity to speak at a number of seminars held by other companies. I was there to upskill site teams and cadets, while spreading the good word of the BCA. I was very proud to deliver a talk to some of the future leaders in our industry and have it lead to some challenging discussions.

  

What is your most favourite memory from BCA Logic?

2019 BCA Logic Pool comp. I was partnered with our Fire Engineering Manager, Michael Mason, and to set the scene… there was a huge crowd, the energy was electric and there was some fierce competition. There were also some questionable methods of “progressing to the final”. Unfortunately, that day the dream team combo was robbed.


What do you like to do when you aren’t working?

When I’m not working I fill my time in my workshop designing and creating modern timber furniture. I’m currently working on the refurbishment of a timber boat… which has been more ambitious than first anticipated.
