Project Description

Meet Triona

Senior Vice-President
Based: Boston

Joining WT Partnership in 2007, Triona returned to WT in 2019 after enhancing her skillset at a major Australian Financial Institution 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 was part of Triona’s remit 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.

Since arriving in Boston, Triona has been heavily involved with the redevelopment and expansion of a campus for a large Tech company based in Cambridge MA which upon completion will occupy almost a million square feet.

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.

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.
