Project Description

Meet Triona

Associate Vice-President
Based: Boston

Originally joining WT Partnership in 2007, Triona is delighted to be returning to WT after enhancing her skillset at a major Australian Financial Institution (Australia’s oldest Bank) and Australia’s largest ASX listed Real Estate Developer. The variety in Triona’s career has allowed her to view projects through several different lenses and this has shaped her ability and passion for understanding our Client’s requirements and delivering favorable outcomes for projects.

Identifying construction risk in deals and formulating risk mitigation strategies kept Triona busy during her time at the Bank working mainly in the Property (Institutional, Mid-market, and Commercial) and Project Finance spaces.

Working up cost options with a focus on ‘best use of site’ for potential development sites across all Property Portfolios as well as providing value engineering advice for live projects to maximize efficiencies and drive innovative design and construction methods was part of Triona’s day to day at the ASX listed Real Estate Developer.

Originally from Ireland, relocating to Boston with WT Partnership has taken Triona closer to home.  With a mandate for growth in Boston and the Eastern Seaboard of the US Triona is looking forward to leading and being part of the team responsible for Client Relationships, Cost Management, and Business Development.

As a married mother of 2 (mostly) beautiful boys there is rarely a quiet moment in Triona’s house! Luckily Triona’s boys keep her up to date on all things sporty which comes in very handy on social occasions!

Most Enjoyable Project:

Aurora Tower at Melbourne Central – This 90- level show-stopper, constructed over the underground train station at Melbourne Central Shopping Centre is now the highest building in Melbourne CBD. Costing more than $650m and with over 1,000 apartments, commercial and retail space, it has become the focal point of Melbourne’s CBD. The project was funded through a Syndicated Facility Agreement with 2 other Banks. As well as the height of the building, the added complexities of the project resided with numerous stakeholders including rail and tram authorities, local council, aviation authorities and the interface with the existing subterranean train station. Communication and collaboration between Client, Builder, Consultants, and Lender was crucial to make this project a success, Due to finish, mid-2019 beautiful Aurora has now become one of Melbourne’s Iconic Buildings.
